A Class Action was filed in Superior Court, Province of Quebec, District of Montreal, Canada, Case No. 500-06-000760-153 against 50 Respondents including the Attorneys General of Quebec and Canada, the City of Sainte-Anne-Des-Lacs, Hydro-Quebec, and approximately 40 corporations involved in the manufacture, production, servicing and transmission of Electromagnetic Frequencies (EMFs) and Radiofrequencies (RFRs), for their contributory roles in the transmissions, products and services that emit
in excess of one milliGauss of magnetic field, 0.6 V/m of electric field, or 0.1 microWatt per square centimeter of microwave power density for general populations in uncontrolled environments; or 0.3 milliGauss of magnetic field, 0.2 V/m of electric field, or 0.01 microWatt per square centimeter of microwave power density for sleeping environments or for sensitive individuals (children, pregnant women or persons who are electromagnetic hypersensitive) from any one or any combination of anthropogenic the listed electromagnetic field (EMF) sources… [Pg. 6]
Anthropogenic EMF is measurable throughout Quebec attributable to technologies and infrastructures ranging from the low frequency power distribution grid through to high frequency mobile telecommunications networks. Not isolated systems, EMF from one system may couple onto an adjacent network compounding health effects, particularly for electro-sensitive individuals. [Pg. 7] [CJF emphasis]
Not only is anthropogenic [man-made] EMFs measurable in Quebec, but throughout entire global communities where various microwave technologies are prolific, e.g., cell, stingray and GWEN towers, Wi-Fi, AMI Smart Meters, 3G—4G and “trial communities” for 5G communications networks, plus antenna arrays and radar facilities.
Those technological “advances” have been implemented and allowed to be placed everywhere without proper environmental and human health impact studies—at least in the USA—being made available to consumers and the public at large. If such studies exist, they are not privy to public knowledge nor are warnings about adverse health reactions, e.g., electromagnetic hypersensitivity, etc. However, that information probably can be found during the Discovery process of any lawsuit, unless such ‘proprietary information’ may not be divulged due to “trade secrets”!
Charles O’Brien is the Attorney of Record for Marcel Durand, Evelyn and Myles Mahon, the Petitioners. The document presented to a Canadian Superior Court was signed July 27, 2017, on behalf of
All persons who reside, work, study in any part of the Province of Quebec, well as flora, fauna, pets and animals that are exposed to a level in excess of one milliGauss of magnetic field, 0.6 V/m of electric field, or 0.1 microWatt per square centimeter of microwave power density for general populations in uncontrolled environments; or 0.3 milliGauss of magnetic field, 0.2 V/m of electric field, or 0.01 microWatt per square centimeter of microwave power density for sleeping environments or for sensitive individuals (children, pregnant women or persons who are electromagnetic hypersensitive) from any one or any combination of anthropogenic the above-listed electromagnetic field (EMF) sources, who suffered moral, physical, psychological and/or genetic damages as a result EMF pollution. Pursuant to the precautionary principle, those born, not of the age of majority, are nonetheless claiming as class members given the pervasive, escalating and cumulative effects of EMF pollution (as appears from the Threshold Exposure Standard below): [Pp. 43-44]
In reading the 64-page document, I found it extremely exciting to realize a member of the legal profession was “calling to task” corporate behemoths for product liability ‘negligence’, plus other stated accusations, and especially their FAILURE to inform of potential exposure to EMFs from their wireless products, services, etc., including their FAILURE to encourage means to reduce EMF exposures:

The above represents only a fraction of the citations, which I chose to use as examples for each corporation, since each company has extra citations. If you would like to read all of them, start at page 24 and end with page 35 of this link.
The Attorney General of Canada was cited for
failure of Canadian government; especially Health Canada, to fulfill mandate of “. . . ensuring best health of Canadians”; capitulation with industry to suppress health risks, conflicts of interest; willful negligence in reviewing/considering relevant recent research for updating EMF safety guidelines;
and the Attorney General of Quebec:
Failure to apply its environmental legislation, permitting of EMF pollution, failure to make operational and enforce the EMF provisions in the Environment Quality Act, conflicts of interest with the industries employing EMF, Letter R-4, which constitutes in-beddedness, suppression of evidence and intentional interference with citizens’ health, intentional breaches of both Charters, sub-delegation of jurisdiction to Hydro-Quebec. WiFi in schools (attractive nuisance and addictive). False information to Quebec doctors complicitous behaviour;
Other interesting aspects of this filing, in my opinion, are as follows,
X. Whether by failing to adequately regulate and apply laws, regulations, codes or bylaws, the governmental entities named herein were at fault, acted in bad faith and willingly participated in or sanctioned […] EMF pollution and the breach of class members’ fundamental rights; [Pg. 35]
BB. Whether children are at particular risk due to cell phone […] radiation and its links to cancer, as indicated in American pediatrics radio frequency (RF) guidelines produced as Exhibit R-24 ; [Pg. 35]
EE. Respondents including the Provincial and Federal governments:
(i) hid information concerning EMF pollution and its effects, which caused prejudice to those subjected to EMF pollution;
(ii) willfully and intentionally caused prejudice to the Quebec population, its flora and fauna, children, pregnant women and the EMF hypersensitive by covering up technical information, carcinogenic nature, and other health risks due to cumulative EMF exposure; [Pg. 36]
JJ. What amount should farmers effected [sic] by “stray voltage” in excess of the standard proposed by Petitioner, namely, one volt from the ground, be compensated and what measures must be taken by Defendants to ensure that stray voltage in farming communities is curtailed ? [Pg. 37]
Is section 48 of the Quebec Charter which protects the right every handicapped person against any form of exploitation breached? [Pg. 37]
NN. Does one have the right to not be exposed to EMF emissions above one milliGauss of magnetic field, 0.6 V/m of electric field, or 0.1 microWatt per square centimeter of microwave power density for general populations in uncontrolled environments or 0.3 milliGauss of magnetic field, 0.2 V/m of electric field, or 0.01 microWatt per square centimeter of microwave power density for sleeping environments or sensitive individuals (children, pregnant women or the electromagnetic hypersensitive and for pets and animals); [Pg. 37]
9. The conclusions sought by the Petitioner are too many and are cited at pages 39 through 42.
This filing, in my opinion, indicates what may be considered a long-arm reach of the law, in Canada at least, being applied to the unbelievable usurpation of corporate overreach, plus the lack of proper government agency enforcement to protect human and animal wild life (fauna), the environment, trees and other flora being impacted by electrosmog, plus what’s strategically subverted and denied by all who deal with microwave technologies, i.e., the non-thermal radiation adverse health effects and damage to humans and our DNA, and what’s called electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) or medically known as idiopathic environmental intolerance (IEI).
