1) Please share any significant response you get from your MLAs about the fire report and this important issue. We must not allow them to ignore this, as they have done with so many of our concerns. This really is a matter of safety for our families. Some excellent letters are below, but I hope you will take the executive summary (and perhaps the report, too) to your MLA. Anything done face to face gets more attention than an email that can be deleted.
“International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection reference levels” (the same as Safety Code 6) “are exceeded for smart boards, touchscreens …, energy-saving bulbs …, fluorescent lamps …. Compliance distances for general public range from 15.3 cm (touchscreen) ….”
3) Saskatchewan NDP asking pertinent and important questions about the lack of due diligence re. the installers. Why isn’t someone in BC asking these questions – push your MLA to demand answers about the fires, and to get rid of “our” $$meters. Many of the incidents included in the Fire Reports related to poor installations that can lead to fires months after installation.
4) One of the many “benefits” to the corporations of the $$meter is that people can be forced to pre-pay for their electricity. This is being introduced in Mexico, and is touted as a way to offer electricity to those with bad credit records or histories of paying late
5) Alison Heath has been interviewing many people who are involved in the effort to reduce the exposure to RF and EMF, and is offering a free online seminar on Monday, Aug. 25. You can go to emfsummit.com. Below is a portion of my interview but the seminar will include experts, real experts, like Dr. Henry Lai.
6) News from Nelson, where Nelson Hydro has agreed to allow $meter covers to reduce RF:
To follow up on our last meeting of the Nelson Citizens for Safe Technology, I’m happy to say that Nelson Hydro is allowing the use of smart meter covers to reduce the radiation inside and outside the home.
They will be inspecting meters this fall and will send a letter to houses/businesses that have the covers to inform them of the safety measures and expectations regarding the cover in relation to the meter readers and technicians who inspect them. In light of this, I’ll be offering another workshop to allow you to make your own cover!
Workshop Details: Tuesday September 2, 2014
Time: 6:30 – 7:30 pm
Place: Christie-Lees Hall – 701 Radio Avenue, Nelson BC
(at the back of the Kiwanis Village).

Subject: The truth about Smart Meter Fires and Failures in British Columbia
MLA for Nanaimo~North Cowichan
112-50 Tenth Street, Nanaimo, B.C.
Dear Mr. Routley,
I would like to know the position of the NDP, and you as our representative to our legislature, about a damning Report released yesterday (see below link to its executive summary) by the Coalition to Stop Smart Meters, which has clearly informed us citizens of BC, that the Minister of Energy and Mines Bill Bennett has not been telling us the truth about smart meter fires in BC. The Province of Saskatchewan has halted the deployment of Smart Meter due to fires and is recalling all the installed so called “smart meters”. Isn’t it time that our Province and legislature act to stop the dangers to life and property caused by smart meters fires ? Also, isn’t it time that the privacy and health of us citizens is fully respected and taken into account?

Subject: Open letter to Greg Kyllo MLA
OPEN LETTER TO GREG KYLLO MLA SHUSWAP ELECTORAL DISTRICT
Hi Greg, August 20, 2014
Yes, it’s me again. You’re getting to know me and the things I care about quite well, such as the 7th Section of the Canadian Charter of Rights. It’s a bit strange since I’m one of about 25,000 constituents in your riding and you wouldn’t have a clue whom I was if you fell over me in the street. You are our only MLA so it only stands to reason that I ought to know as much or more about you and what you care about, but sadly I don’t probably because you have never responded to any of my concerns to date – so I’m kinda wondering what you do on behalf of those you are mandated to represent.
Do I need to remind you Greg, that part of Section 7 of the Charter promises “the right of the individual to life, liberty, security of the person and enjoyment of property, and the right not to be deprived thereof except by due process of law”?
As far back as September 2012 PECO, the Philadelphia Electric Company halted installation of smart meters because of at least two fires and dozens of incidents of overheating consistent with the installation of so-called ‘smart’ meters. The same brand of meters is what Hydro is forcing on the citizens of BC and oddly enough by the same person who was responsible for initiating the program in Pennsylvania. That would be Gary Murphy, who was hired by the government of BC at great expense to the taxpayer to invade our province with a mandate to proliferate a similar threat among the victims who live here. Apparently there was no BC person capable of providing this disservice.
Now since then in Canada alone the former Premier of Ontario, Dalton McGuinty has admitted that the program was a mistake in that province since neither efficiency nor economy as promised has been achieved, Saskatchewan has placed a moratorium on its smart meter program due to fires and the threat thereof. Saskatchewan has ceased installations and is removing meters already in place as is the City of Portland, Oregon and now Medicine Hat, Alberta for similar reasons.
Oregon is on the same coast as BC so one cannot blame the cordillera for the lack of integrity in the BC legislature, so please Greg, let the electorate know what magic the politicians in BC possess that the politicians in these other jurisdictions do not, that allows our government and its agency BC Hydro to continue to lie to, and withhold information from, the public regarding the deleterious effects of this lethal and toxic initiative.
Please Greg, as a responsible citizen, business owner, husband and father, please, as part of your duty to your constituents, open the attachment provided (it won’t blow up in your face) peruse it carefully and then do the right thing.
The right thing would be to stand up for your people and STOP THIS MADNESS NOW! Consider, Greg, that if no effort is made to cancel the program and replace those smart meters that have already been installed with the older analog meters which have been more than adequate for over 50 years, you will be guilty along with the other members of the Liberal caucus and the authorities of BC Hydro, the BCUC and the OIPC who have all colluded to bring about the travesty that is as predictable as snow in winter in Sicamous to all of the residents of British Columbia, and every living breathing creature, who are subject to the physical damage to property and the radiation of their persons due to these deadly devices.
Tiring but not done yet,
p.s. It would please me to receive confirmation that you have at least acknowledged receipt of this missive. em
