Press Release 28 July 2010
Martin Weatherall candidate for Mayor of Stratford.
The most important single issue in the Stratford Municipal elections is the health and safety of the people of Stratford. The people of Stratford are facing the greatest danger in their history because of exposure to electro magnetic radiation and in particular microwave radiation from wireless devices. Stratford residents are not being warned of that danger.
Even more worrying, public officials working for the City at Festival Hydro and Rhyzome networks are greatly increasing that danger with implementation of a city wide Wi Fi system and the installation of dangerous smart meters, both of which emit very strong amounts of microwave radiation. These officials and the present Mayor, have been provided with important scientific information about the dangers, but have done nothing to stop implementation of these dangerous systems, or finding a safe solution.
Thousands of scientific reports over the last sixty-five years have documented serious health effects from exposure to electro magnetic radiation. There is far more information documenting this danger, than there is for cigarette smoking, yet most of our citizens, including the very young and the elderly, are being exposed to microwave radiation that may be the equivalent to smoking a large number of cigarettes each day. The effects of microwave radiation are usually gradual, in the short term people may suffer from: headaches, sleep disruption, fatigue, difficulty concentrating, muscle and joint pain and dizziness. In the long term adverse health effects include various cancers, depression and anxiety, heart and cardiovascular problems, neurological effects, genotoxic activity and reproductive harm
Martin Weatherall will ensure that Stratford citizens are educated about the dangers of electro magnetic radiation and will work to make Stratford the safest City in Canada, from this invisible but deadly new pollution.
Martin Weatherall is very concerned about the long-term debt of the city and the high property taxes. He will give this problem a very high priority in order to find solutions.
He will encourage development of new sustainable industries and he will work to ensure that empty factories become productive again.
If elected he will encourage citizens to become more involved with the council and the decision making process.
Martin Weatherall has well-rounded experience that would complement mayoralty duties. He served seven years with the British Royal Navy and two years as a British press photographer. He served for twenty eight years with he Toronto Police Service, first as a uniformed officer, then several years as a Forensic Crime Scene Investigator and nearly six years as an elected, Toronto Police Association, Director of Legal Services.
For the last four years he has been the Co-Director of W.E.E.P. ( www.weepinitiative.org ), a Canadian non profit environmental organization that specializes in the health effects of electro magnetic radiation and helping those who have been harmed by it.
