  • Non-$$metes:  WARNING: New i-phones have SAR levels which approach the limit allowed by SC 6 and the US Fed. Communications Commission (some of the weakest/most dangerous standards in the world). Keep them away from the body and head!!  Better yet, don’t buy them.

  • In Europe, there are significant concerns about smeters, the costs, the lack of benefits, etc. So the industry has decided it must put pressure in upcoming elections on politicians to require roll out of the smeter program as part of their platform.

“These headlines are damaging to the smart meter roll out, of that there is no doubt. And if it adds to the uncertainty around the policy, then that causes us all a problem. So EUA in its manifesto for next year’s general election, will demand that any future government commits to the national roll-out programme of smart meters.”

Industry is warning that our data is not secure, we could lose control of it:

“Consumers were often not able to dictate what happened with the data that smart appliances gathered, he said, adding that often this data had the potential to be sensitive and deeply personal.”

“”There’s a tendency among manufacturers to copy all the data to their own cloud,” said Mr Hagins.

“Consumers are frequently not being given a choice to control or allow that.”

 

  • Attached is a notice of an upcoming medical conference in which Electro-hypersensitivity (EHS) will be the topic. Please forward the notice to your MD. A famous Canadian doctor who does research, has a clinic and teaches one of the few courses on EHS at medical schools will be presenting: Dr. Stephen Genuis.

  • Nevada, like BC, will allow people to keep analogs but those with smeters are stuck with them, or else they lose their power.

Respected Editor!

There is no doubt that the BC government is hiding the truth about “Smart Meter” fires. Denying that they have occurred, lying to the public.

Further, paragraph 141 of the recent Tribunal states that there should be “acceptable discussion” about health issues!

Why should I,  with a, luckily at present, dormant Brain Tumour, not be at liberty to refuse the installation of a “Smart Meter”? My own physician, a highly qualified diagnostician and leader of a team of physicians here in Sidney told me that I should not accept the new meter, AS IT IS MY HEALTH THAT COULD BE AT RISK.

There are other reasonable grounds why these new meters should not have been allowed without, once again (remember the PST/GST debacle?)  a jot of public consultation; what about privacy? What about the laughable  justification for the $32 per month extra charge for those of us who have insisted on keeping our original analogue meters for having them read manually? Another sick joke! Prior to the introduction of the new Meters, we often had months of “estimated” readings without any problems.

To add insult to injury, the BCUC set up originally to monitor honesty and fair play of the Utilities, has been disembowelled by our “Liberal” government. It no longer answers to the citizens who finance BC Hydro and other Utilities, as was its stated purpose, but to that corrupt and dishonest government in Victoria whose only yardstick reflects  the “bottom line” and “Top Down”  mentality, to the exclusion of all other considerations. “Democratic” it is most emphatically not.

In all fairness, how can you possibly side with that government’s predatory behaviour by disallowing even the slightest  discussion of this serious subject in your Newspaper? I can assure you that this problem will not go away, there will be a landslide in the end.

“You can fool all the people some of the time, some of the people all the time, but not all the people all of the time”.

Show some gumption, and give us our say! You will be the better for it. Your circulation may even go up! Or are you afraid the govt. will shut you down as well?
