3) Letter from BC Hydro re. reduction in “legacy” fees for those months when meters not read. I suspect we all received our letter. There was nothing in mine re those paying on equal payments – the decision that I read said that these people would not get a reduction and most likely would not have their meters read as often as others. I hope everyone is writing to the Ombudsperson with complaints about this discriminatory fee

4) A new film is being made about the dangers from prolonged exposure to RF/microwave radiation. It is through films like this, “Full Signal” about cell towers and their dangers, and “Take Back Your Power” about smart meters that people are beginning to realize the level of radiation to which we and our children are being exposed – without our knowledge.

Subject: BC Hydro Meter Replacement Notification
Date: August 12, 2014
To: “Complaints BCUC:EX” <Complaints@bcuc.com>
Mr. Wruck –
The information I requested was a sign-off on the safety of installing a combustible meter on my meter base, which is designed, tested, and CSA certified for use with non-combustible meters, by a BC-registered professional engineer . . . . as required by the Safety Standards Act. I went through all the documentation you sent me and did not find such sign-off. PS – Even if I had found such sign-off I would have immediately challenged it because I know from my engineering experience that my safety concern is real, not imagined.
Yes, I am concerned with BC Hydro’s apparent non-compliance with the BC Safety Standards Act, and yes, I’ll contact that Authority about my concern as you suggest. But my most immediate/urgent concern is not to do with which regulations have and haven’t been complied with, but rather that of public safety – one example being the fire and electrocution hazard I drew to your attention in my July 17th email. It is my understanding the BCUC is responsible for public safety when it comes to utilities in BC. Did the Clean Energy Act and/or Directive 4 relieve the BCUC of this responsibility? If I don’t hear from you within two days that the BCUC is onto this I’ll be taking my concerns to the provincial Ombudsman.
