    Could be risk to high for contamination (safety protocols) to allow their people to be out in the fallout during this time, people may want to do the same. When the storm clouds move in you don’t want to be caught outside ! See the denseness of plume moving in !

    I have just placed a phone call to Natural Resources Canada, and they are supposed to ‘call me back’. I asked why Canadians now have to depend on data from Norway and not from their own country.
    613-947-4113 – Nuclear Energy Dept, NRCan
    613-995-0947 – National Resources Canada
    613-996-4697 – Chairman, Nuclear Energy Dept., Mr. David McCauley

    These offices are all in Ottawa.

    • Just went to the CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency) site:

      http://www.inspection.gc.ca/english/fssa/imp/eartere.shtml

      which,unsurprisingly, doesn’t have any information, but they do have links to other Canadian government sites all of which say everything is safe, nothing to worry about, but without realtime figures or charts.

      http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/hc-ps/ed-ud/respond/nuclea/2011-03-17-eng.php

      “The damaged nuclear power reactors in Japan are not expected to pose a health risk to residents of British Columbia or the rest of Canada. Given the thousands of kilometers between Japan and Canada’s west coast, any radioactive material that might be pushed eastward via wind patterns is expected to be dispersed over the ocean long before it reaches Canada.

      Health Canada will continue its regular radiation surveillance and monitoring activities across Canada. Health Canada has monitoring stations across the country in strategic locations and major population centres.

      Air, water, milk, seaweed, seafood and agricultural products in Canada remain safe. In fact, the increases in radiation levels we are seeing are less than the fluctuations in radiation that occur naturally in the environment when it rains or snows.”

      • Bruce – in 2009 as a new and excited thermographer, I approached the CFIA after finding every supermarket we tested displaying room temperature packaged meats.

        I finally talked to the CFIA only after working my way through store management, the health department and anyone else who would listen to our tainted food stories.

        Finally, the CFIA told me to talk to the retailers directly so that was the end of that.

        It is similar with nuclear safety. We should all continue sleeping, confident that our government is on the job…

    Good work Cheryl! The sooner people fully realize the extent to which big government and big business can’t be trusted the better it will be for the next generation we are supposed to be safegaurding for. We, the people need to be informed, independant and self reliant as individuals, families and communities.

    • In this week’s Radio Ecoshock show I interview Kris Starosta, the Simon Fraser U Prof who took the measurements of Iodine 131. He says they have not yet tested for cesium as that takes more time. They will be testing for it, and expect to find it, as a common agent coming with radioactive iodine.

      But Starosta says he thinks the measurements are so low, they are not a threat. However, as he say, he is not a medical doctor.

      My other guest, Dr. John Large, cautions against letting scientists determine what is “safe” radiation for you.

    • vicki….i am with you…and it may be in such isolate regions and there will be red spots….first and some others…

      but the later cancers particularly in children and women…will take a little while…unless the plutonium from Reactor 3 MOX shows up in your neighborhood…
      and i’m sure…will we never hear of such radiation sickness from plutonium…i’m quite convinced of this….so..it will be another ‘dispersal event”..and the media will not report it and the Govt will never allow such reprots to be linked to any materials from Fukishima…

      my bet is rather on the radiation levels…in the San Jaoquin Valley..and the major food agri business….

      that’s where it will be difficult for the media and govt to NOT report the same….and this will be the major indicator….of where…the radiation gets into the food chain and stomachs of all americans….rapidly….next week even…

    An email I got today from the CFIA:

    In line with ongoing Government of Canada radiation surveillance and monitoring activities across Canada, the CFIA is conducting sampling and testing of domestic milk from British Columbia. Testing of drinking water, in collaboration with federal and provincial government partners, is also under consideration. Health Canada will also continue its monitoring and surveillance at stations across the country in strategic locations and major population centres.

    Wow. I’m just so ashamed of being a Canadian right now. Instead of keeping the Canadian people informed of what is “really” going on, there seems to be a downplay on the radioactivity being introduced to our food chain here in BC. I was shocked when I found out the there was going to be zero testing for BC milk for iodine. I stopped using, buying milk all together from this region. I try to buy Ont. milk. Even then, who knows if that’s safe.

    Are these so called health officials in Canada just stupid or what? I find it hard to understand these health officials are not any some super human being that radioactivity doesn’t effect them. I’m sure their children, wives, pets, fathers, mothers, etc… will get cancer in the near future just like the rest of us. When their daughters start to have babies with four arms, one eye ball, etc… only then they will they understand the serious understanding that it was/is in their best interest to let the public know what is really going on here. I suppose if the japan plant was fixed today, we might still have a chance. Still, it’s April 5th 2011 and there seems to be zero evidence that anything is really being done. I heard it might take months to get things back to normal.

    I wish humanity best of luck. Some of these particles coming over will not go away in days or months but years. I have to say even though they claim portions of japan are safe, I think they are all crazy in having any assurance from the japan government. I think they are going to have a tough time. Even worst than it is now. This stuff builds up. I feel for the japanese people. I also feel for the western seaboard which is getting the worst of the fallout. I doubt the BC government will even let the public know the alpha, beta, gamma radiation levels which can’t be detected by geiger counters. I’m just so sad to know I will die of cancer in the next few years. I guess until we take measures into our own hands we have to admit our lives our not in our hands. So so matter what you do to stay fit and healthy you or someone you love will get some sort of discomfort knowing that cancer is in your future. Life is grand, huh?

    I guess I’m going to have to face the fact that I will be getting cancer or some other health issues in the next few years due to the non fatal fallout Canadian health officials claim are in the air, milk and water. Sure it might be in low levels right now, but this radioactivity builds up. I don’t see the plant in Japan being fixed any time soon, so… I’m just turning 40 and I have a long way to go. So I thought. I find it hard to believe my and your life is in other peoples hands and the best thing is that we voted them in. Irony?

    Get ready for your daughter, father, wife, family pet to die. Just a matter of time unless we all stand up and ask what the hell is really going on here. Are we suppose to just take it? Who’s government tells the truth? None. So really, you really don’t know what is going on here. No people… sit down and shut up. You don’t need to know. What a joke. I really wish a lot of you people out there start to open your eyes and understand the seriousness of this situation. If you don’t well I wish ya best of luck. I know this radiation situation is being downplayed. It’s obvious. If you can’t see that… most of us then get what’s coming.

    So much for a bright future…

    Wow. Just WOW.

    You’re the sort of people who think vaccinations cause autism, right?

    Not ONE of the articles linked here carries any FACTS. This ‘radioactive plume’ is a THEORETICAL MODEL. Iodine-131 has a half-life of EIGHT DAYS. And radioactive ‘alpha and beta particles’ are blocked by YOUR CLOTHING.

    Seriously, I wish people like you would get cancer and die because you’re wasting the air intelligent people could be breathing instead.

    Air monitoring is stopping because THERE’S NO DANGER. Because despite all the world’s press masturbating furiously and hoping for a spectaculat catastrophe they could report on for months, the Japanese engineers actually FIXED the problem with a minimum of radioactive leakage and almost entirely SEAWATER contamination at that.

    So you can go back to gossiping about your neighbours and cheating on your husbands or wives and SHUT THE FUCK UP about inane global conspiracies.

      anonymoose, get a life. If you were 1/2 as intelligent as you think you are you might try to keep an open mind. Yes, Iodine 131 has a short half life but how much is safe to have in your body, even for eight days. Do you know how long it takes for your cells to mutate and cancer to take hold?

      Have you heard of Strontium 90? it has a 1/2 life of almost 30 years. It deposits like calcium, in bones and teeth and elevated levels in children living near nuclear plants have been proven to be linked to serious & life threatening illnesses.

      To the rest of the participants in this discussion, please keep the info coming! so hard to find any real data, it seems more like we live in communist China than Canada, the best country in the world. Also the Loprest Water Treatment Company which provides for municipalities has the technology to filter radioactive isotopes from our drinking water. They recently devised a household water filter that sits on your countertop. check out NuWaterConcepts.com to order yours. I spoke to Jim there and he said 2 interesting things: they cant recommend how often to change the filters because there is no data available to them either, to know how much radiation we’re being hit with. and secondly, they are not trying to make a profit on this equipment. they want everyone to be able to afford one. 2/3 of them are priced under $100.

    THE ILLUMINATI:

    The Secret Covenant of the Jewish Secret Society Known As the Order of the Illuminati
    Illuminati Document,
    Presented by Wes Penre, Apr 09, 2008

    “Fallen Angel”

    Introduction by Wes Penre, Illuminati News
    I can’t guarantee the authenticity of this document, although the context pretty much describes the truth as it is. We don’t know when it was written and exactly by whom, but it looks like it was composed by a British person if we look at the spelling of words, which is British English.
    This information was sent to me by someone who for obvious reasons wants to be anonymous. This person gave me this reply when I asked if he/she could verify the authenticity of it:
    “The document was passed to me by a gentleman who has long been a researcher into these things and it was meeting him that first caused me to search the web for more information. That’s how I came across your site. I think he was afraid to let me see it at first as he was unsure I could be trusted. He told me there are those who would kill to stop this information getting out. You will understand why I cannot reveal his name – I only know him by his first name anyway; he wouldn’t reveal his surname. I believe he works as a member of an aircrew, but precisely where I don’t know.

    He did tell me that someone ‘on the inside’ had passed the information to him, but they could very well be dead by now. I have no doubt as to the authenticity of it and hope we can broadcast it far and wide. Once the word is out they (the Illuminati) will never be able to suppress it, although they will try!

    Good luck with your work. We need more good men like you!”
    I am hereby publishing it as it came to me, unaltered. I give the reader a chance to make up her/his mind regarding if this is a bogus or not. Wes Penre, April 09, 2008.

    The Secret Covenant of the Jewish Secret Society Known As the Order of the Illuminati
    Issued under the supreme authority of the Jewish Bograh and sanctioned by the Jewish Rothschild Dynasty (Europe) and the Jewish Rockefeller Dynasty (USA)

    And heed our word, so mote it be.

    THE SECRET COVENANT

    An illusion it will be, so large, so vast it will escape their perception.

    Those who will see it will be thought of as insane.

    We will create separate fronts to prevent them from seeing the connection between us.

    We will behave as if we are not connected to keep the illusion alive. Our goal will be accomplished one drop at a time so as to never bring suspicion upon ourselves. This will also prevent them from seeing the changes as they occur.

    We will always stand above the relative field of their experience for we know the secrets of the absolute.

    We will work together always and will remain bound by blood and secrecy. Death will come to he who speaks.

    We will keep their lifespan short and their minds weak while pretending to do the opposite.

    We will use our knowledge of science and technology in subtle ways so they will never see what is happening.

    We will use soft metals, ageing accelerators and sedatives in food and water, also in the air.

    They will be blanketed by poisons everywhere they turn.

    The soft metals will cause them to lose their minds. We will promise to find a cure from our many fronts, yet we will feed them more poison.

    The poisons will be absorbed through their skin and mouths, they will destroy their minds and reproductive systems.

    From all this, their children will be born dead, and we will conceal this information.

    The poisons will be hidden in everything that surrounds them, in what they drink, eat, breathe and wear.

    We must be ingenious in dispensing the poisons for they can see far.

    We will teach them that the poisons are good, with fun images and musical tones.

    Those they look up to will help. We will enlist them to push our poisons.

    They will see our products being used in film and will grow accustomed to them and will never know
    their true effect.

    When they give birth we will inject poisons into the blood of their children and convince them it is for their help.

    We will start early on, when their minds are young, we will target their children with what children love most, sweet things.

    When their teeth decay we will fill them with metals that will kill their mind and steal their future.

    When their ability to learn has been affected, we will create medicine that will make them sicker and cause other diseases for which we will create yet more medicine.

    We will render them docile and weak before us by our power.

    They will grow depressed, slow and obese, and when they come to us for help, we will give them more poison.

    We will focus their attention toward money and material goods so they many never connect with their inner self. We will distract them with fornication, external pleasures and games so they may never be one with the oneness of it all.

    Their minds will belong to us and they will do as we say. If they refuse we shall find ways to implement mind-altering technology into their lives. We will use fear as our weapon.

    We will establish their governments and establish opposites within. We will own both sides.

    We will always hide our objective but carry out our plan.

    They will perform the labour for us and we shall prosper from their toil.

    Our families will never mix with theirs. Our blood must be pure always, for it is the way.

    We will make them kill each other when it suits us.

    We will keep them separated from the oneness by dogma and religion.

    We will control all aspects of their lives and tell them what to think and how.

    We will guide them kindly and gently letting them think they are guiding themselves.

    We will foment animosity between them through our factions.

    When a light shall shine among them, we shall extinguish it by ridicule, or death, whichever suits us best.

    We will make them rip each other’s hearts apart and kill their own children.

    We will accomplish this by using hate as our ally, anger as our friend.

    The hate will blind them totally, and never shall they see that from their conflicts we emerge as their rulers. They will be busy killing each other.

    They will bathe in their own blood and kill their neighbours for as long as we see fit.

    We will benefit greatly from this, for they will not see us, for they cannot see us.

    We will continue to prosper from their wars and their deaths.

    We shall repeat this over and over until our ultimate goal is accomplished.

    We will continue to make them live in fear and anger though images and sounds.

    We will use all the tools we have to accomplish this.

    The tools will be provided by their labour.

    We will make them hate themselves and their neighbours.

    We will always hide the divine truth from them, that we are all one. This they must never know!

    They must never know that colour is an illusion, they must always think they are not equal.

    Drop by drop, drop by drop we will advance our goal.

    We will take over their land, resources and wealth to exercise total control over them.

    We will deceive them into accepting laws that will steal the little freedom they will have.

    We will establish a money system that will imprison them forever, keeping them and their children in debt.

    When they shall band together, we shall accuse them of crimes and present a different story to the world for we shall own all the media.

    We will use our media to control the flow of information and their sentiment in our favour.

    When they shall rise up against us we will crush them like insects, for they are less than that.

    They will be helpless to do anything for they will have no weapons.

    We will recruit some of their own to carry out our plans, we will promise them eternal life, but eternal life they will never have for they are not of us.

    The recruits will be called “initiates” and will be indoctrinated to believe false rites of passage to higher realms. Members of these groups will think they are one with us never knowing the truth. They must never learn this truth for they will turn against us.

    For their work they will be rewarded with earthly things and great titles, but never will they become immortal and join us, never will they receive the light and travel the stars. They will never reach the higher realms, for the killing of their own kind will prevent passage to the realm of enlightenment. This they will never know.

    The truth will be hidden in their face, so close they will not be able to focus on it until its too late.

    Oh yes, so grand the illusion of freedom will be, that they will never know they are our slaves.

    When all is in place, the reality we will have created for them will own them. This reality will be their prison. They will live in self-delusion.

    When our goal is accomplished a new era of domination will begin.

    Their minds will be bound by their beliefs, the beliefs we have established from time immemorial.

    But if they ever find out they are our equal, we shall perish then. THIS THEY MUST NEVER KNOW.

    If they ever find out that together they can vanquish us, they will take action.

    They must never, ever find out what we have done, for if they do, we shall have no place to run, for it will be easy to see who we are once the veil has fallen. Our actions will have revealed who we are and they will hunt us down and no person shall give us shelter.

    This is the secret covenant by which we shall live the rest of our present and future lives, for this reality will transcend many generations and life spans.

    This covenant is sealed by blood, our blood. We, the ones who from heaven to earth came.

    This covenant must NEVER, EVER be known to exist. It must NEVER, EVER be written or spoken of for if it is, the consciousness it will spawn will release the fury of the PRIME CREATOR upon us and we shall be cast to the depths from whence we came and remain there until the end time of infinity itself.

    David Rockefeller and Jacob Rothschild

    Xianist says 12/15/2008:
    This article is really just a synopsis of The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion…it’s nothing new or astounding.

    Have you ever thought that maybe you’ve been fed disinformation on purpose? You’re not any different then William Cooper. Quite possibly you’re already working for us and you don’t even realize it.

    It’s as plain as black and white. You either accept this, join us, or perish. It is what is meant to happen. It’s humanity’s destiny.

    Evil is good, and good is evil. We are the yang from ying in this world. Without us you would be a mindless drone in “utopia” always worshiping God without really loving him as the great architect of the universe. We bring the order in society. We’ve created the balance.

    The very toothpaste, which you use (hopefully multiple times) on a daily basis, could be infecting your body with all of the horrendous materials we’ve crafted. Our diseases have been pushed into absoluteness. There is nothing that our sinister tentacles have not infiltrated. Why do you think so many believe and trust the FDA? If only they knew the ingeniousness behind the booster shots, flu shots, antibiotics, and their biological mutations. We’re profiting from the death of your family, friends, children, spouse, and even you. Ever been to the doctor? Had surgery or have been in the Emergency room? Remember the saline drip? You were never asked for your consent to push this cold clear killing agent into your blood. But, you were led to believe it was to rehydrate your body. As if your body doesn’t naturally do so already!

    Look at the society you live in. Who are the new icons in America? Not politicians, hardly athletes, but your musicians, especially rap artists. We have controlled the African population in the American states so well. We’ve glorified their impoverished lifestyles. Their purposes are to only breed like the cells of an infectious disease, and completely waste any money we’ve given to them on a slew of material objects we’ve designed solely for them. We build them up, making them feel like they have equality. Even gave them a TV station to reach the masses of Africans to continuously force down their throats what, how, and why we want them to act. We’ve given them their own magazines, as if we actually care about their culture. They have been our best test subjects aside from a few of our own.

    Our very existence was created by God, for God, of God. We cannot be destroyed without first destroying the great architect of the universe, which is the definition of impossible. My brothers are the ones who serve you at the banks, create your food, made the vehicle you drive, the house you live in, the clothes you wear, the movies you watch, the books you read, the music you listen too, the fragrances you wash with, absolutely everything in you, on you, around you, we have created.

    God may have made you in his image, but we bred you into existence. What is imperative is that you know the extent of our ownership over you, namely your soul. You have been given a number. We have been given the master list of the numerals enlisted for death. Our savvy is death. Our secondary aptitude is control. Together we have become the unstoppable force, blowing in the wind, inhabiting every shadowy corner of the world. We are that unspoken word, ready to be spoken, but only when we determine the time is right.

    http://healthcanada/fukushima

    This is basic SEO (Search Engine Optimization) for a website, with the URL being THE most important for findability and hits.

    As is, their information is not worth finding in the first place – it’s not up-to-date or useful. It won’t explain why we’re getting Cesium, Iodine, Strontium, Americium on the West Coast, what the real levels are or the current state of reactors, and so on.

    Now, see if you can guess what this URL is:

    http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/ahc-asc/branch-dirgen/hecs-dgsesc/sep-psm/rpb-br-eng.php

    It’s the URL for Canada’s Radiation Protection Bureau, tasked with:

    Leading the coordination of federal nuclear emergency preparedness and providing Health Canada’s technical support to the Federal Nuclear Emergency Plan (FNEP)

    Developing guidance to protect Canadians from the effects of nuclear accidents, radioactivity in water and food, radon in indoor air, and naturally occurring radioactive materials from non-nuclear industries

    Operating the Canadian Radioactivity Monitoring Network and laboratory to provide health assessments regarding existing levels of radioactivity and effects of nuclear/radiological accidents from a national perspective
