Letters:

From a member in Victoria. This will go the route of many letters so many of us have written to newspapers – and will be ignored. We should go after the editors and publishers for this censorship.

Subject: There Ought To Be A Law

If there isn’t a law on the books or there is one but the provincial government either ignores it or has somehow put it in abeyance to suit their purposes to inflict a Smart Meter on everything that moves in B.C. regarding their supposed “right” to shut off people’s electricity for non-payment of hydro bills.  If one has kept consumption payments in good standing, but refused to pay the extortionate legacy fees imposed, then to turn off someone’s electricity is reprehensible.

Parts of B.C. do not enjoy the less harsh winters we have in Victoria or parts of Vancouver, so to turn off a person’s ability to keep warm and prepare meals is unconscionable.

This punitive measure is illegal in other parts of the country so as not to cause undue hardship or possible death during the months from November to April.

B.C. Hydro should not be allowed to jeopardize people’s wellbeing while they attempt to achieve their misguided goal of a Smart Meter in every home!

Subject: Fwd: update 2014-11-06 HYDRO HAS NO WINTER MORATORIUM FOR CUTTING POWER

Hi, Andrew

The topic of Hydro’s lying, bullying, dangerous, incompetence [compelled by the Liberal government’s own disrespectful disregard for citizens] is of great importance to me and thousands, if not millions, of British Columbians. It is important to know who we can count on to protect our democratic rights by speaking out in the legislature and media. The Liberals have proven their unwillingness or inability to accept their responsibility on this ministry file and its link to the larger question of democracy in general.

And the NDP seem to be satisfied with studying the situation:

I am actually at work on a detailed proposal on this issue right now. Given the $32.50 charge has been approved by the BCUC, it

requires a substantial response to change existing Hydro practice.

I receive a lot of correspondence on many issues by e-mail. On the Smart Meter issue, given our past criticism of government policy   and its implementation, I am reviewing how best to intervene to protect and support residents of BC. Ignoring what is happened        won’t be enough. This is why I am preparing what I hope will be a detailed and thoughtful response. [Adrian Dix – Oct7,2014]

Adrian hasn’t even gotten as far in his research as to report the legacy fee accurately. It is $32.40 a small but telling error of his commitment to a careful appraisal of our concerns.

I am aware of your attempts to raise this issue on your web-site and some press outlets. Does the Green party have a platform position on this issue that could be the source of some hope for the “legacy meter” people who are paying to have our meters read at exorbitant fee rates while tens of thousands of “smart meter” people are having their meters manually read free of any fee? I suppose one could logically contend that we, legacy meter people, are subsidizing those “smart meter” people. I would be surprised if this inequity is legal although it might seem “smart” to Hydro, the LIberals and those benefiting from a free ride. Who speaks for us? I know you do. Could you up the volume?

Please see, below, the letter from Sharon Noble to the Times/Colonist. (from the 2014-11-06 update).
