Sad focus on revenue
More radio frequency smog.
How many people saw the small “Notice of intention to build a wireless communication facility” in Wednesday’s papers?
How many people will not provide their comments because they are required to be in writing?
Willow Point Park, a place for recreation closely surrounded by residences is going to have a cell tower?
And last, I question how any comments submitted to a company acting “for Telus” will be evaluated and disclosed.
I tried to find information for Medallion Land Services on the Internet but could not get anything for the name, nor the phone number, nor the address.
I called the 866 number advertised in the Notice of Intent, the casual answer was “Hi, this is Brent please leave a message”.
Now I have to question again, who is this dealing with any input that is provided from Campbell River residents?
In my mind, it is very wrong to expose people to close-up radio frequency in general and in a place for recreation in particular.
I am very concerned that precious park space is leased out for Telus to improve their wireless networks, where instead our parks and people should be protected from more and more radio frequency smog.
It is sad that the main focus is on how much revenue this generates while the focus should be the children who use this park and the families who live around it.
