Calgary 5G Awareness

Next Event: Sep 26, 2020

This is a Calgary based group with the mission to raise awareness on wireless radiation and its effects on our health and our environment.

Wireless radiation is emitted by cell phones, cell towers, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, smart meters, and all other wireless devices. 5G would be another layer that surrounds us 24/7.

The 5G infrastructure is being installed RIGHT NOW (March 2020) in Calgary in the form of small cell installations (adaptive antennas for 5G networks).

We are calling for a moratorium on the roll-out of 5G until potential hazards for human health and the environment have been fully investigated by scientists independent from the industry.

Wake up. Join us!

Sign the URGENT APPEAL

Urgent Appeal to the Government of Canada to Suspend the 5G Rollout and to Choose Safe and Reliable Fiber Connections

Next Event in Calgary:

Saturday September 26, 2020 4-6pm
Near 3303 3rd Ave N.W.

Join us for Global 5G Awareness Day 🌎 ❤🐝

Raise awareness on the safety, health, environmental, privacy, and security problems of 5G.

Plant the seed with one person and one conversation at a time 🌱

Also a great time to visit with like minded individuals. All are welcome! Bring a sign if you like.

On the Bow River Pathway, Near Extreme Bean Café, 3303 3rd Ave N.W.



Research on RF/EMF radiation has shown that:

Current regulations are inadequate.

Health Canada maintains in Safety Code 6 that there are no long-term effects caused by RF EMFs, thus, the exposure limits are based on solely on heating (thermal) effects. However, there are numerous studies both experimental and epidemiological, that show the RF radiation below the regulatory limits can harmfully impact human health and the environment.

5G will result in a massive increase in inescapable, involuntary exposure to wireless radiation.

  • 5G stands for "Fifth Generation" – the next step in the development of wireless technology.

  • 5G is made up of low (600 MHz to 1 GHz), mid (1 GHz to 6 GHz, similar to 4G), and high frequency ranges (+20GHz or millimeter waves).

  • 5G requires new infrastructure which includes adding more antennas to existing cell towers and installing thousands of “small cell” antennas. Any lamp post or power pole is a candidate to host a small cell antenna.

  • The full 5G roll out will make it so that every home, every school, and every workplace is close to a transmitting cell structure, which will cause a significant increase to the amount of wireless radiation that we are being exposed to.

  • The use of 5G would also introduce a new set of frequencies called millimeter waves. The U.S. Army uses millimeter waves in crowd dispersal technologies, where “the beam produces an intolerable heating sensation, compelling the targeted individual to instinctively move”.

  • 5G antennas will emit a constant stream of wireless radiation, 24/7, 365 days a year.

  • There has been no safety testing on long term exposures to radiation from 5G technologies.

  • There are some studies showing significant harmful effects on wildlife and the environment.

It’s not too late! People are taking action. Join us!

In 2015, Scientists put together an International Appeal for more protective guidelines regarding EMF exposure, encouraging precautionary measures and educating the public about health risks, particularly risks to children and to fetal development.

The INTERNATIONAL APPEAL to Stop 5G on Earth and in Space has over 285,000 signatories from 217 nations and territories.

The Canadians 4 Safe Technology organization has created an Urgent Appeal to the Government of Canada to Suspend the 5G Rollout and to Choose Safe and Reliable Fiber Connections.

  • The Appeal, with 6,243 signatures - 4 days after release (May 14 – May 18)!

Other cities around the world have called for a moratorium (a pause) on 5G until health effects are further investigated:

Precautionary measures to limit human exposure and raise public awareness:

Stop the roll out of 5G in Calgary:

  • We are calling for a MORATORIUM on the ROLL-OUT of 5G in Calgary and on EARTH until potential hazards for human health and the environment have been fully investigated by scientists independent from the industry.

What Can You Do?

1) Minimize your exposure to wireless radiation:

  • Use of wired connections, increase distance from phones, routers, and cell towers.

  • Protect vulnerable populations (e.g. children and pregnant women)

2) Develop and revise regulations to take into account long term effects:

  • Updates to Health Canada's Safety Code 6 are long overdue!

  • Today’s regulations consider only heating (thermal) effects.

  • Conduct independent studies on long term health effects to determine safe limits

3) Vote with your money. Stop buying the next wireless device and opt for safer tech (e.g. wired).

Wake up! Speak up. (Do your own Research).

1) Write to your elected officials, medical professionals, schools, and anyone of influence.
