What Background Does Clement Have In EMF?EMR?

Minister Clement Says Residents Concerns Were Not Valid
OTTAWA- Charlottetown MP Shawn Murphy urged the Minister of Industry, Tony Clement today in the House of Commons to answer why he overturned the decision of the City of Charlottetowns Council to deny Rogers Communications to build a cell tower off Mount Edward Road.

Mr. Speaker, for the Minister of Industry, last year Rogers Telecommunication applied to build a massive cell tower in a residential neighbourhood right in the middle of the city of Charlottetown. The neighbours did not want it. The people who lived in Charlottetown did not want it and our democratically elected city council voted against it… Why did he disrespect the wishes of the residents of Charlottetown and the decision of their elected council? questioned Murphy this afternoon in the House of Commons during question period.

The Minister of Industry, Tony Clement responded, If there are legitimate concerns, those concerns are then addressed. Health Canada reviews the concerns from a health and safety point of view. Health Canada did its job and reviewed for health and safety concerns. Those concerns were not valid.

I am upset that the Minister of Industry believes that the concerns of the citizens of Charlottetown are invalid since the City of Charlottetown took proper and extensive examination of the proposal of the Rogers cellphone tower prior to rejecting the building permit, stated Murphy.

    Kinda makes you wonder why Charlottetown bothers with all the expense of having a city council. They should save some money and just let Tony Clement run the city.
