- From a member on Wed. If Langley still isn’t connected to the grid, that means there are a whole lot more than 50,000 having $meters manually read.
I just talked to a friend of mine that lives in Langley, 200th and the # 1 Freeway. he has been out of power since 1 AM today. as of 7-30 tonight still out. He has a smart meter because he rents, he phoned at 1-30 AM and Hydro new nothing of the power outage. At 7-30 this evening he noticed Hydro trucks at the bottom of his driveway. so he walked down and talked to them They said that they were only told of the outage at 2 oclock this afternoon??????? Smart meter and CHARGES are a FARCE. Holding out.
- Shocking information in Nevada that smacks of collusion. The utility company replacing the damaged meters and panels before calling the fire department, or not reporting the failure at all. I can tell you I have been told similar stories by anonymous BC Hydro workers over the last 2-3 years, who could not go to authorities because they feared losing their jobs. The truth is going to come out, sooner rather than later.
- Quite a few people have told me that they wake up at the same time every night and have done so ever since they had a smart meter put on their homes. This could be more than coincidence. One of our members is gathering information to see how many people are having this problem, and asks if you will take a minute and complete the questionnaire below and send it to him. Once a good sample has been received, I’ll share the results.
- A major win against the FCC and the industry in Point Roberts WA next to Tsawwassen BC regarding an FM transmitter.
- For anyone who hasn’t read Dr. Martin Blank’s book “Overpowered”, I would strongly suggest you do. It is very well written and easy to read for those of us who are not scientists while being very comprehensive. You will learn so much.

- Hydro One in Ontario still confronting billing problems. I wonder how many people in BC have complained to our Ombudsperson. Perhaps we should ask. Even though she refuses to get involved, if even do, at least she will be forced, I would hope, to say, perhaps there is a problem.
- In the program went forward despite failures/fires during the pilot project. Why? I hope this comes out during the investigation.
