Here is a google translation French –> English – a bit rough but you can get the gist of it.

3)   Reports are still coming in from the many rallies in BC, but turnouts were good despite wet, windy and chilly weather. Many people were eager to share experiences, and ready to stand firm to protect our civil rights. I will have photos and reports in tomorrow’s up. Thanks to all the organizers who worked so hard and thanks to everyone who attended!

The process of exchanging the approximately 130,000 electricity meters throughout B.C.’s Southern Interior will start next year and is expected to be finished by the end of 2015. The project affects only FortisBC’s electricity customers, and does not include changing gas meters anywhere in the province.
