No-drink order in Old Massett, following radiation increase, Queen Charlotte Islands Observer, April 8, 2011:

[Emphasis Added]

… [Old Massett, British Columbia acting band manager John Disney] said his suspicions around adequate government testing started 25 years ago, after the nuclear meltdown in Chernobyl, Ukraine.

He’d been out on his fishing boat and heard the Coast Guard over the radio telling lighthouse operators to disconnect their rainwater systems.

When he tried to find out why, the local, provincial and federal health authorities told him not to worry, the coast guard were just being overcautious.

He asked whether they were testing and was assured they were. But he decided to do his own investigation and took samples from his Nadu Road rain catchment system to a private lab. They found two types of radiation were at the danger level. He drained his 4,000 gallon tank. Fast forward to two weeks ago, post-tsunami in Japan, he said, when he was told not to worry about potential radiation in the rainwater here. “My hair stood straight up,” he said. …

  • I don’t trust anything that public officials that are paid by the nuclear companies say. That say it is safe, just like they did Chernobyl. Yeah right! Dying people and physical deformities were just coincidental? Don’t by their hype and do protect yourself. Much better safe than what happened to the victims of Chernobyl.

    Even radiation and your hair will stand straight up and then fall out.
    When they say “don’t worry”, that’s when you start worrying. By now, most of us should realize the agencies are full of shit and are as useless as tits on a bull.

    Our Harper regime is only worried about big business health, not the health of Canadians.
    Now that we’ve had 2 weeks of radioactive Iodine being absorbed by our thyroid glands, it is too late to take a preventative supplement.
    Fortunately for my family, I purchased norwegian seaweed when I saw the first reactor explode. I bought the last bottle on SuperStore’s shelf, so I knew other’s were also in the loop. Iodine131 is very toxic. Stay indoors until a private researcher gives the all-clear. How sad!
