People need choice on smart meters

I feel compelled to voice my outrage at our provincial government and B.C. Hydro officials for their shameful conduct

I feel compelled to voice my outrage at our provincial government and B.C. Hydro officials for their shameful conduct as they knowingly continue to mislead, ignore and intimidate the people of B.C., forcing everyone to accept wireless smart meters into their homes and businesses without any oversight, public input, or proof of return on investment.

B.C. residents continue to be pressured into believing the benefits of smart meters with multi-million dollar ad campaigns while many thousands of residents requesting to keep their old analog meters are wilfully ignored by government and hydro officials.

The Union of B.C. Municipalities and 33 local councils who have requested a moratorium has also been ignored with notice compliance is not negotiable.

Premier Christy Clark and B.C. Hydro stop the bullying.

You are not experts on non-ionizing radiation and your claims of safety are not supported by independent science.

Allow public process to take place and uphold the Charter of Rights and Freedoms afforded citizens in this country.

Respect a home owner’s right to say “no” to your meters. Provide choice to those who do not give consent to a potential carcinogen on their homes.

If the wireless “smart grid” program is worthy of implementation it will prove itself through independent examination, if not, better to walk away now and come back later with a better plan for our province that does not jeopardize safety.
