Cell tower concerns must be taken seriously

Reader glad to see feds taking notice of expansion of cell tower placement

It is encouraging to see James Moore and Industry Canada recognizing there are issues and concerns regarding the proliferation of cell towers.

Thousands of people across the country have expressed concern about the placement of cell towers, citing health reasons, lower property values, harm to the environment and many other issues. Those concerns must be properly considered and appropriate precautions taken when there are indications they have even a small level of justification.

The area of potential harm could extend for hundreds of metres around cell towers, the impact of which must be considered beyond just the economic welfare of the company wishing to install the tower.
