David Saunders, Mayor of the City of Colwood , has proclaimed August 2009, as Electromagnetic Sensitivity (EMS) Awareness Month. It is the very first EMS proclamation in Canada, as Canada joins many other countries in recognizing this new environmental illness, which has spread worldwide.

It is stated in the proclamation that people of all ages in Colwood and throughout the world have developed the illness of Electromagnetic Sensitivity (EMS) as a result of global electromagnetic pollution, and that Electromagnetic Sensitivity is a painful chronic illness of hypersensitivity reactions to electromagnetic radiations for which there is no known cure, and that the symptoms of Electromagnetic Sensitivity include dermal changes, acute numbness and tingling, dermatitis, flushing, headaches, arrhythmia, muscular weakness, tinnitus, malaise, gastric problems, nausea, visual disturbances, severe neurological, respiratory, speech, problems and numerous other physiological symptoms.

It is also stated in the proclamation, that Electromagnetic Sensitivity is recognized in Canada, by the Canadian Human Rights Commission, the Canadian Government, as an Environmental Sensitivity, the Americans with Disabilities Act and by many other national and international commissions, and that this illness may be preventable through the reduction or avoidance of electromagnetic radiation in both indoor and outdoor environments and by further medical research.

The Mayor, also said in a public message, that relief can be obtained only by eliminating exposure to radiation-emitting devices, such as cell phones, wireless technology, FM and cell transmitters, CFL light bulbs, and that the health of the general population is at risk from chronic, long-term exposures to electromagnetic radiation.
