EMAIL LETTER:March 13, 2006REPLY:
I feel so strongly about the recent decision to make Toronto a WiFi city that I felt it necessary to contact you. My belief is that there has not been enough solid research into the effects of WiFi on the human body for our governing bodies to decide to blithely install this technology for the sake of making Toronto a hip and cool place to be. Sacrificing human health for the sake of commercial trendiness is not only sad but also scary. I believe you have made a poor choice on behalf of Toronto residents and I would like you to set a better example by holding off plans of a city wide blanket of WiFi until more thorough, unbiased research has been conducted or, allowed to come to light. You should be putting the health and wellbeing of the people of this city first instead of relegating it to the bottom of the heap.

Thank you for your email letter.
I appreciate you taking the time to write.
We are not providing "open" access, it is being run through Toronto Hydro Telecom. Regarding health issues I encourage you to contact Toronto Hydro for any concerns you might have.
I will however be sure to share your correspondence with the Mayor.
Once again, thank you.
