Canada: Radioactive Iodine in Rainwater: Public Was in the Dark

After the Fukushima nuclear accident, Canadian health officials assured a nervous public that virtually no radioactive fallout had drifted to Canada.

But last March, a Health Canada monitoring station in Calgary detected an average of 8.18 becquerels per litre of radioactive iodine (an isotope released by the nuclear accident) in rainwater, the data shows.

The level easily exceeded the Canadian guideline of six becquerels of iodine per litre for drinking water, acknowledged Eric Pellerin, chief of Health Canada's radiation-surveillance division.

"It's above the recommended level (for drinking water)," he said in an interview. "At any time you sample it, it should not exceed the guideline."


Well, anyone paying any sort of attention after the explosions that happened in Japan should know this was only a matter of time before we received conformation on this...

I told all of my friend and family after to, if they could, stay out of the rain, and of course everyone thought I was crazy. No one I knew though something so far away could possible affect us.

I hate the fact they keep this sort of information from us, I cannot wait to see in 10 years what the real Fukushima was...

Any thoughts?

This is a crime, with holding information from the public. At the very least ,people could stay outta the rain, have their wells checked. There is not much the Globe can do about this, where you gonna hide? But at least inform people to do what ever we can.

Because TEPCO asked for a information Blackout, things will be worse.

My heart goes out to the Japanese People, they are eating radiated food, and living in Radiated area's all because TEPCO says there is no problem.

The number of Cancer,s there , Japan, and Globally , will not be hidden in a few years. I hope I'm wrong, but fear I won,t be.

Canadians were in the dark, but at least the rain water was glowing.

I think many people suspect that everything isn't a peachy as they put out. But no one is willing to do anything about it even if they can.

How do you stop the rain from falling?

How do you fix the biosphere crime that Japan has so arrogantly created?

You are going to die anyway. Right?

You knew somewhere deep inside that after the incident it would travel somewhere? Correct? Did you think it would stay in that secluded area?

So, why are you surprised?

Live life dude. It's way too short.

Screw that!

So your saying the fact they are releasing deadly chemicals that will make my lifespan shorter and will affect my children's life and health should not be any big deal?

I do live my life, I enjoy it, as do my children, what gets me is the amount that those in power lie to us. That pisses me off and should not be allowed.

Sure, we can sit back and not get upset about it, but that is what got us here in the first place. Keep letting it go, and see how far they will let it.

Good thinking...

I honestly can't recall any "don't drink rainwater" warnings from any US state or city that were covered by media in the US. If there were, it didn't make many major media waves whatsoever.

Is anyone who frequents this site really surprised?

Hell, go to my first EVER thread. Religious BS AND Nuclear warnings about Fukushima fallout.

So many times I have posted the radiation maps.

So many times they get ignored.

People don't want to know because they're all too 'comfortable' and complacent in their lives.

The real question is: How comfortable will you feel when the doctor tells you you have cancer?

Are you ready to join the already 14,000 deaths that have occurred in the US alone due to the Fukushima fallout?

Don't believe me? They even hide the truth in The Wall Street Journal

That's what wrong with you people. You let things interfere with your life. If you're going die quick, short or whatever. How you going to stop it?

Rain is not going to stop. You can't hide. It's going to fall.

The only true escape is to move to the southern hemisphere.

Oh, have you seen someone die of radiation cancer, or any sort of cancer?

It's painful, it's slow and it hurts not just the person with cancer but everyone who has to watch them suffer.

Further to the above, it firstly affects infants and young children. I'm sure they will try live a fantastic life while they're bed ridden dying slowly.

So we just bend over and take it?

If I am going to die a long slow death from cancer or radiation poisoning, or my kids are, interfering needs to be done. Nobody is talking about stopping death, just avoiding unnecessary toxins and chemicals.

I simply avoided the rain last year, if it was raining I would find an indoor activity, and avoided rain filled pools.

Pretty simple if you ask me.

I do the same thing with crap food. I would rather spend more time preparing proper food than buying processed crap. Under your same thinking I should buy the crap food that poisons me and my kids rather than preparing or buying good food, just because we are going to all die eventually.

Makes no sense in my books.

No, I can't say, I have. But to hear bitching and moaning over rain. Gimme a break. I do it everyday. I am fine . Sound. This guy, is acting like it's zombie apocalypse already. I don't know how many times I walked through Fukushima, BS, rain. I'm still fine. Wind blew East and the Wind blew West. So, practically, we all got hit with the BS.

Reminds me of this video. I don't know if it's been debunked. The video shows a guy driving through rain in banff (near Calgary) a few months ago. He wipes rain off of his windshield, puts the cloth next to his gieger counter and it starts alarming and warning him that he is in a dangerous radiation area.
The goods start at about 2 minutes.

I edited my post above. Not sure if you saw the extra bit.

You are right. There is nothing that can be done about it if you don't want to uproot your family and move South of the equator.

The problem is, IF you have knowledge of it and choose not to do anything about it, are you any better than the governments hiding the truth?

Well well well. This could explain what I have been seeing all over Vancouver last summer. And everyone knows how much rain we get here.

Many times I would see some kind of contraption hooked up to a car being towed everywhere. I even pulled along side it once and got a good look. Then one day while eating lunch it goes by again followed by a police motorcycle. I always wondered if this thing was measuring radiation because of all the different tools and antennas off the top of the thing. The guy driving was stopped for a moment and I casually asked what he was doing. His answer didn't sit right with me. He said it was measuring road surfaces. Maybe, I dunno but strange.
I took some pics just in case this topic came up.





As you can see, the streets are wet.

Thanks for the video, I have not seen it.

I showed my wife and she freaked out a bit.

Yea, that's a pretty fishy little contraption. I have no idea what it would be, but if it was seen last year and in the rain, it is only logical to think it was used for measuring the rain.

I can't believe they did not inform the people. I mean I knew they wouldn't, if we knew that information people would avoid going to work on rainy days and going out period. But in Vancouver, damn, yu guys wouldn't be able to leave your house for months on end.

Great pics though and thanks for sharing, hopefully a more educated person can comment on what that could possibly be.

Yeah, I've seen someone die. Quite a few times. [I'll say about 5 times]. About cancer or whatever. Gave up my feelings when I let someone move in. Hate me if you want. Truth is truth.

I don't think you get it. We all understand we are going to die, we get it. We just do not want our children to suffer for a large corporation to save a couple dollars.

Ever watched a child die of corporate greed?
