In Presenting Petitions, Jack Harris, MP stands up for his constituents who believe that a cellphone tower will be located to close to day care facilities. Thus possibly causing diseases & neurological/physical disorders in children nearby from waves.
"Mr. Speaker, I have the honour to present a petition on behalf of hundreds of residents of my constituency of St. John's-East who object to the erection of a cellular telephone antenna on the rooftop of a hotel that is close to a child care centre & across from a major sub-division. The petitioners believe this is potentially harmful for their children & the neighbours. The petitioners are requesting that the Minister Of Industry deny the application for a license to erect this tower, or alternatively that Bell Mobility & the hotel owners withdraw the application & move the cell tower at least 200 metres away from area residents & child care certificates."
