There is a process underway so that people may comment on Bell Mobility’s proposal to put a cellphone transmission tower on some land adjacent to St. Mary’s Elementary School and the Bishop Meaden Manor senior citizens complex in west-end St. John’s.
Bell has provided information so that people can send in their comments.
My wife and I filled in the form and stated that we are not comfortable with the proposal because if there are deleterious effects of the radiation used for cellphone transmission, then that radiation is more likely to affect deleteriously very young children and very old adults.
Because the deadline was close, I decided to send our comments via fax. When I entered the number given by Bell Mobility, I got a sweet, mellifluous message that said the line was not in service. Perhaps they forgot to pay their bill. I emailed the comments.
Can a company that exhibits that lack of finesse or expertise in their own specialty, (or perhaps holds a high degree of arrogance), really be trusted to act in the best interests of the public, especially of our young children and seniors?
