Re: Family works hard to live free of radio frequencies, News, Aug. 31, 2011.
Thank you so much for your article. Ted Olynyk and BC Hydro missed the point.
He can chose to use a Wi-Fi or a cell phone. We are not given the choice to have a wireless smart meter.
There is real reason to be concerned about the health of our family.
My neighbour could not spray DDT, another 2b carcinogen, on my yard. Why can BC hydro put a smart meter which emits radiation which is also a 2b carcinogen on my home?
This is being done by a monopoly — giving us no choice. Do it or else lose your electricity. Since when did a publicly owned utility have the power to risk my health without my permission?
I will not allow a smart meter on my home unless it is wired. If they can do it in Ontario, California and Idaho, they can do it here.
I have the right under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms to a safe and secure home.
