Ridiculing Green Party stance ‘sad’

Editor: I always look forward to reading Tom Fletcher’s B.C. Views column, because he supports his opinions with lots of evidence and usually bashes any and all sides of an issue with equal force.

But even a good journalist is not perfect, and Fletcher just doesn’t get that there is a serious health and environmental discussion raging right now about the effects of the electromagnetic radiation from wireless technology, such as cellphones, computers and now “smart meters.”

That the World Health Organization recently recognized this radiation as a possible carcinogen was very significant.

It is not on a par with “such volatile substances as pickled vegetables”.

And to ridicule the national and provincial leaders of the Green Party for speaking out on the issue is not funny. It’s sad.
