How to oppose cell phone antenna on the roof of your apartment?

Hi, guys! Maybe somebody has already have a similar problem and willing to share their experience. The problem is that we live in a rental building and the management company of the building made a deal with Wind company to instal cell antenna on the roof of the building, everybody is against it, we sent a petition to them about our concern, but they sent back a lot of printed materials that cell antenna is not health concern and they are going to install it anyway. Any advice on this matter will be highly appreciated .

Move?

This is off topic. Maybe try posting in the Home forum? But the building belongs to the owners. They can do what they like, as long as it follows Industry Canada and zoning/municipal laws.

We live in a free and democratic society, where a property owner is free to do what ever he likes with his property, including installing a cellular antenna from Freedom Mobile, formerly Wind mobile. that meets all federal standards from industry canada. If you have a problem with it, please let us know what the actual problem is? or is it not an actual problem and you just do not "LIKE" Cell phone towers? because if you do not "like" cell phone towers, that does not considered a "problem" but more of a personal preference, which means if you are free to move to another building if you wish
Thanks

Everyone wants cell phone connectivity, and no one wants these towers anywhere. At some point, something has to give.

Anyway, this has been studied to death, and there is little to no evidence that electromagnetic radiation causes any sort of health problem whatsoever. There has been an explosion of EM emitting devices in the last 30 years (microwaves, cell/TV towers, cellphones, ...) and yet there has been no discernible increase in cancer rates (when you account for people getting older).

Not much you can do so, get some tin foil hats if you are concerned. :)

In Canada a property owner is definately not free to do whatever he likes... ;-) (but this is off-topic and you are right that he can install a cellular tower)

I hope OP isn't watching free OTA HD TV because he will likely have to say good bye to free TV and pay for it from now on.
Try not! Do or do not, there is no try...

AWS is nowhere near TV frequencies. It's 700mhz cell signals you'd need to worry about.

Anyone remember ~25 years ago regarding the fear of living near high voltage power lines?

Oh hey hey! That means you can use wind at home without the shitty reception...at least their plans are cheAp cheap
Cell phone reception directly under/in a building with a cell phone tower isn't particularly good.
I've got a pretty good friend who's seen me at my worst.
He don't care if I'm a blessing or a curse,
But he always shows up when the chips are down.
That's the kind of friend I like to be around.

What's not to like? Put the KD mac and cheese on the table before leaving for work, come home to a nice hot meal. No need for a microwave or slow cooker.
