Powerlines linked to leukemia in B.C. report

METRO VANCOUVER -- Living close to high-voltage power lines may produce one additional case of leukemia every two years in B.C., according to “ballpark assumptions” by B.C. Centre for Disease Control environmental health experts.

The projection by Dr. Ray Copes, director of the environmental health services division and Prabjit Barn, an environmental health scientist, is in an article headlined “Is living near power lines bad for our health?” in the November issue of the B.C. Medical Journal (BCMJ).

Government spokesman Jake Jacobs said the government was not influenced by the article when it decided to offer to buy homes along a controversial, upgraded B.C. Hydro right of way in Tsawwassen.

Folks, the Campbell government seems intent on zapping itself right out of office.

I never thought I would see a government stick its finger in the electrical socket as the NDP did in 2000, but Gordon Campbell has lost it. And because he's made all the decisions himself, has no one to pass the blame to.

Let's see if I've got this right. The Campbell government gave the residents of Tsawwassen the finger (the politest metaphor I can think of) when those residents complained that BCTC overhead transmission lines exposed them to dangerous levels of electromagnetic radiation.

Group Assails Project's EMFs

UPSTATE NEW YORK, Jan. 12, 2009 -- A coalition of seven counties and five citizens' groups has filed testimony with the New York Public Service Commission (NYPSC) saying that a proposed high-voltage transmission line will affect sensitive electronic devices such as electron microscopes and high-resolution imaging instruments at a nanotechnology center planned for the area and should not be built.

Communities Against Regional Interconnect (CARI) has long opposed the plan by New York Regional Interconnect (NYRI) to construct a 190-mile, 1200-MW electrical transmission line to meet the ever-growing elecricity demands in the southern part of the state. CARI said the preferred route for the project currently extends from Marcy to Orange County, passing through the Marcy NanoCenter site. The NYPSC has yet to determine the project's final route.
