    To: My Sea to Sky Site Administrator / System Operator

    Subject: The My Sea to Sky Website and web-based trackers.


    Dear friends of Sea to Sky Squamish,


    As the former Stephen Harper government’s Bill C-51 is still undergoing the Justin Trudeau government’s insufficient amendment during the last four years, many public corporations are taking advantage or are ignorant to national security developments of global cybersecurity traffic taking up a large portion of bandwidth on the Internet, particularly from companies and governments supporting NATO. I am writing in reaction to the anti-cyber warfare propaganda coming out of the G7, NATO and nuclear superpower summit meetings in Geneva, Switzerland.


    The relatively modern industry of private global analytic and advertising businesses is mainly based in the United States. In the U.S., whistleblowers have relentlessly fought the United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court secret authorizations to deploy surveillance tracking in these companies’ server-side scripting and firmware in operating systems and mobile devices by legal force in secret, allegedly to fight a biased right-wing interpretation and propagandized fear of the threat of terrorism and political marksmanship of the Russian Federation and The Peoples Republic of China, human rights abuses, and unsolved war crimes in Africa, The Middle East, and South America. We have a media in Canada that is credible just the same as its counterparts in the U.S and has deliberately ignored and in many cases has complicated this issue by means of disinformation or distraction such as the Cambridge Analytica scandal and foreign relations allegations directed at Huawei Global not included in a list of smartphone firmware companies targeted reformating in the Wikileaks Vault 7 revelations about the United States Central Intelligence Service cybersecurity “hacking”.


    As an activist organization of civil liberties with the focus to protect our planet’s resources, I am writing to inform you of free ad-trackers detected on this page among others: Google Analytics (ssl.google-analytics.com) and Facebook Analytics (connect.facebook.net) and to recommend alternative hosting methods within your web site budget that does not include trackers by companies with a myriad of terms and conditions to protect their metadata overhead deployments on the public Internet. A common argument to the recommendation is that people use these companies’ services every second without issue and little or no one boycotts their activities, why should I? As you well know, this is due to a lack of education and the assumption that corporations and governments can be trusted. From my perspective, I’ve experienced negative development of this issue aside, with the persecution of whistleblowers and journalists and my awareness since 2007. In the meantime, I will and suggest to others continue to access this domain (myseatosky.org) and block these scripts with browser-installed ad-blocker plug-ins such as AdblockPlus and AdBlocker Ultimate at minimum.


    In confidence, I welcome you to share my concern with your organization, site administrator, hosting service, or legal consultants.


    Thank you for reading with consideration of your organizations’ cybersecurity and ethical mandate to inform the public of activism beyond public policy.


    Sincerely,

    M. Freeman

    Hello, my daughter is super upset! – We submitted her artwork online (through your portal) on Saturday the 5th. Once submitted we receives a screen thanking us for her submission, We were excited to see all the submissions this evening and were very surprised to see that her piece was not shown… What happened? – many hrs were spent on this…

    Hello! We are students from Western University currently pursuing our Masters in Environmental Science/Studies; one of our program requirements is to be matched with a non-profit organization to conduct a consulting project. We are currently working with Tree Canada to find better strategies for including diversity considerations in NGO programming and impact reporting. As such, we are exploring the various methods that other non-profits use to help inform these processes, both successes, and challenges. Do you have some time to discuss this?

    Thank you for your time!

    The breakwater that sunk in Horseshoe Bay in February was partially filled with oil and it’s still sitting on the bottom of the bay. The Sewell’s have been dumping oil in there for decades, going all the way back to their Queen Charlotte fishing lodge when they had a ton of leftover oil that they had to bring down the coast.


    Eric Sewell reported it to Environment Canada and they said to leave it. The barge had been leaking water through cracks for a long time and that’s likely why it went down. EC is apparently concerned that if they try to lift it, it will break apart.


    The barge is now sitting on its side on the bottom of the bay. The hatches are at the bottom so the oil isn’t actively leaking out. Concrete is porous so the oil is likely to slowly leach out into the environment.


    Apparently the break water was never insured because it wasn’t insurable.


    To suck it out would cost would apparently cost ~1.4 million

    Re: Woodfibre LNG

    An environmental concern that is not being considered is the possible introduction of heated, and chlorinated water back into Howe Sound via the heat exchange system of the LNG plant. After all the time & expense of cleaning Howe Sound from the Britannia Mine, it seems a shame to now just pump a bunch of chlorine into the water.


    If Woodfibre LNG is allowed to use a single-stage / Open loop system, they will be introducing tonnes of chlorine into Howe Sound, as they use it to decontaminate / keep mussels & barnacles from accreting in the water intake & outflow pipes. The water being released will be very warm – too warm for most fish, but nice for algae blooms, and will be heavily chlorinated. Beyond the air quality concerns of an LNG plant, a Closed Loop System is the only acceptable system in such an environmentally sensitive area.

    Probably the main reason for both the global nature crisis and climate change is WiFi….please read the following. Susan Fletcher


    Climate Change, WIFI and 5G

    The Industrial Revolution with its use of fossil fuels occurred at the beginning of the 1800s yet ‘Climate Change’ didn’t become an issue until after 1952 when the ‘space race’ began and microwave radio frequencies became the dominant form of communication. Today there is radar, internet, cellphones, GPS trackers, weather stations, satellite TV and a host of other uses that are increasing by the day with each of these products having millions of subscribers. Radiation from all the power lines on earth reaches the ionosphere and the magnetosphere where it’s amplified up to one hundred thousand-fold. Among other effects, this ‘power line harmonic radiation’ has altered earth’s weather. An International Appeal launched last year calls for a halt to deployment of 5G which, it states, “constitutes an experiment on humanity and the environment that is defined as a crime under international law.” (https://www.5gspaceappeal.org/the-appeal ) The Appeal explains, “In addition to millions of new 5G base stations on Earth and 20,000 new satellites in space, 200 billion transmitting objects, according to estimates, will be part of the Internet of Things by 2020.” Black soot from kerosene used in satellite-propelling rockets contaminates the stratosphere for years and contributes to global warming. The notion that RF radiation is harmless was disproven by the 1970s in laboratories all over the world, and the harm to humans, animals and plants has since been confirmed in over 10,000 peer-reviewed studies. The effects of present-day levels of RF radiation on the health of the population and the environment as reflected in high rates of cancer, neurological disease, heart disease and diabetes, plummeting populations of birds, bees and butterflies, and unhealthy forests can be seen and felt everywhere. If 5G is built, radiation levels will increase 10- to 100-fold. The International Appeal states that, “In the absence of an agreed comprehensive legal regime governing activities in outer space, legal liability for those activities is non-existent, despite the prospect of whole continents, the atmosphere and the oceans being put at risk by them.”

    Hey MySeaToSky,


    My name is Dave Heighway and I live in Whistler. I attended a meeting here last year regarding opposition the the Woodfibre LNG plant – Tracey Saxby was the speaker. I support your cause and thankful of your hard work.


    I’m contacting you because I’d like to get something going in our area around the Leap Manifesto/Leap Movement. I think organizations like MySeaToSky have much in common with the tenets of the Leap – I expect some of your members are signatories. I haven’t found anyone or any group discussing the Leap in our area and would love to talk to you about it.


    If that sounds interesting, I’d love to hear from you! Hope to see you Saturday for the flotilla.


    Thanks and keep up the hard work.

    Sincerely,

    Dave Heighway

    I spoke with the students who created the film, asking them if it would be OK for other groups to share or link this film to the website. The students said they would be fine with any links or sharing of their video.
