What is 5G?
SUSPEND 5G CANADA APPEAL
Along with 23 other organizations and groups in Canada, C4ST has launched our Suspend 5G Canada Appeal to halt the rollout of 5G until Health Canada updates its safety standards and the economic consequences of wireless technology are understood.

Sign the Appeal: www.appel5gappeal.ca
We hope you will sign the Appeal and tick the box to let your member of parliament know about your signature.
You hear about 5G all the time these days. It’s all over the news. All the wireless companies are talking about it. Even with everyone talking about it, a lot of people don’t yet understand what 5G actually is. How does it work? What impact will it have? Here's a quick explainer.
5G stands for fifth generation mobile phone services. 5G will not only utilize current 3G and 4G wireless frequencies already in use but also add higher frequency — submillimeter and millimeter waves — in order to transmit more data. (Source)
This new mobile network will require millions of small cell antennas to be placed on lampposts and utility poles approximately every 100 m or 6 – 10 houses. This will result in involuntary exposure to wireless radiation for everyone 24/7, whether you use the service or not.
Wireless antennas emit microwaves — non-ionizing radiofrequency (RF) radiation — and essentially function as cell towers. Each small cell can have over a thousand antennas that are transmitting simultaneously.
Peer reviewed, published science indicates that cumulative daily RF radiation exposure can increase cancer risk, alter brain development, damage DNA, and damage sperm. Most people are unaware that wireless technology was never tested for long-term safety, that children are more vulnerable and that the accumulated scientific evidence indicates harm.
Meanwhile, large telecom companies like Bell, Rogers, and Telus are rushing to install new “small cell antennas” – the foundation for 5G – as quickly as possible.
There is no scientific evidence to support any claim of safety for 5G.
You have the right to know if this technology is safe before it is installed where you live.
