1) In 2012-13, a Linesman testified that there were significant dangers posed by smeters, both to residents and to the men for whom he was responsible. He was fired because of his complaints. In 2015, the court agreed that he was unfairly fired.
(click on photos to enlarge)
Here is his testimony in which he claimed that both ITRON Openway and Landis+Gyr meters had caused fires. He had spoken with a colleague at Centerpoint Utility to confirm the fact that fires were occurring. He testified that the ITRON meters had “blades” that were thinner than those of the analogs they were replacing. The base was designed to hold only analogs and the thinner blades left a gap which caused arcing. According to his testimony, there were pallets of burned and damaged ITRON smeters.

These smeters cause fires. The Landis+Gyr smeter was later certified by UL in the USA, proving that the UL protocol and standards are not adequate to determine if smeters are safe or not.
The utility is appealing this decision and here is the court case:
2) Interview of Walt McGinnis by ElectricSense. I have not had time to listen to it yet.
Listen to my interview with Walter McGinnis and learn:
- the 5 most common wiring issues that can give rise to high EMFs – amazingly Walter reveals almost 2/3 of homes, nationally, have elevated EMFs
- a simple test you can do at the breaker box to identify magnetic fields BEFORE you call in an electrician – the EMF meter Walter recommends to do this
- how one simple wiring error can create massive magnetic fields all over your home – the wiring error may not even be in your home, it could be from your neighbors
- how sometimes calling in a plumber and not an electrician can easily resolve your EMF issues – though it’s wise to get some before and after EMF meter readings
- why our homes are invaded by electric fields – the 5 ways these electric fields can be minimized
- Walter’s staunch advice on earthing – he’s not dead against earthing but there are a number of circumstances where he considers it to be very dangerous
- and much more

3) A response from a politician’s staff re. Site C – Adam Olsen’s office. Attached [see link below] is a letter written to Premier Horgan pointing out that BCUC found that there is no reason for the project and it is already over budget. The decision rests with the Cabinet — so please write to Premier Horgan and ask your MLA to ask Premier Horgan to cancel the project. BC Hydro misrepresented the costs, the need, and the overall environmental effects.
4) Here are some interviews that were on a London, Ontario radio station this week.

Laureen Maurizio interview with Andy Oudman:
Subject: RE: Vote NO! For Site C Dam!
Date: 6 Dec 2017
To: Janis Hoffmann
Thank you for reaching out to us about this. Site C has been a major focus for Adam and the Green caucus. We feel that our money could be much more effectively used on other energy projects.
As part of our confidence and supply agreement with the New Democrats, the BC Utilities Commission has finished reviewing the Site C project, as they should have in the first place. The agreement also leaves the final decision with the NDP cabinet. The review made it clear that Site C is going to be significantly over budget, and completing the dam will have long-term consequences and risks. The report also identified that there are alternates to meeting our energy needs that are much lower cost to ratepayers with less environmental risk.
The BC Green caucus wrote an open letter to Premier Horgan again articulating the case for cancelling the dam. I have attached that letter if you are interested. [http://www.stopsmartmetersbc.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/BC-Green-Caucus-Letter-to-NDP-re-Stop-Site-C-by-Andrew-Weaver-Sonia-Furstenau-Adam-Olsen-December-01-2017.pdf]
We have strongly advocated putting a halt to the dam project and exploring alternatives to meeting our energy needs, which will create long-term jobs in renewable energy and storage. To that end, we hope the project is cancelled and the money that was planned to be spent redirected.
All the best,
Constituency Assistant | Office of Adam Olsen, MLA
A response to Z’s letter in last night’s update:
From: “Chandra Herbert.MLA, Spencer” <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Date: December 7, 2017
Subject: RE: STOP SITE C DAM CONSTRUCTION IMMEDIATELY
Thank you for writing me about the Site C dam, (Z).
I have visited the site, met with local farmers, the Peace Valley Environment Association, Clean Energy BC, BC Hydro, Treaty 8, and many others who have views on this project as I take my responsibility as your MLA seriously. I wish the former BC Liberal government had taken this decision as seriously, as I believe their decision to proceed with Site C was flawed, and should never have been taken without a thorough independent review of the BC Utilities Commission.
As you are likely aware, one of the new BC Government’s first acts was to initiate a BC Utilities Commission review of Site C to help the government make the right decision for British Columbians and to keep BC Hydro rates affordable in the long-term.
The BCUC has completed the review. Their findings were informed by technical experts, a broad range of stakeholders, and hundreds of members of the public and First Nations people. The level of participation shows how important the issue of Site C is to the people of this province, and proves why Site C should have been sent to the BCUC for review from the beginning. The BC Liberal government should never have bypassed the Commission, or spent billions of dollars in an attempt to ‘get Site C beyond the point of no return’. It was wrong, and this has left the new BC government facing tough decisions that may have considerable negative impacts whether we cancel the dam, or proceed.
The Government is now taking the time necessary to consider the findings, letters like yours, and other issues that are outside the scope of the BCUC review to make a decision on whether Site C is in the best interests of British Columbians.
Given the complexity of the issues involved and the significant and long-term impacts for our province, this is a decision our Government takes very seriously. I am told a decision will be made by the end of the year.
Once again, thank you for taking the time to contact my office.
I appreciate you reaching out to share your perspective with me.

Director, Coalition to Stop Smart Meters
