May Day Picnic : please join us Sunday, May 6th, noon, for a May Day Family Picnic on the grounds of Fire Station #1, corner of Bronte and Rebecca.
We will gather to demonstrate our desire for our community to remain healthy and safe for all: to tell Bell NOT TO TURN THE COMMERCIAL ANTENNA ON. Come out to signal your intent to carry on opposing this new use of the fire station emergency communications antenna. We invite neighbours, friends, and family to join us in visible opposition to the electrosmog pollution that these new antenna would subject us to 24/7.
Bell Canada and the Town of Oakville chose to locate these antenna here, they can choose to relocate them to locations with appropriate setbacks protecting the firefighters, the children in the day care, the churches, school and the residences that are well under the Town of Oakville’s 200 meter set-back protocol. Our people and our community demand better. Mayday is an emergency procedure word used internationally as a distress signal in radio communications. The word derives from the French venez m’aider, meaning “come help me”, and is used by firefighters. The call is always given three times in a row (“Mayday Mayday Mayday”). We invite anyone concerned about the risk of radio frequency radiation to stop by, and urge you to join us in showing your opposition. Bring your family, your picnic and a bright coloured blanket!
