1) In Quebec, a couple fought (and won) to have the collector that was installed on their property removed after the wife became ill. See below the letters for a translation of a CBC article, thanks to Andre Fauteux. In BC, Hydro has planned on having 1800 collectors put on poles in neighbourhoods. Check and scroll down http://www.stopsmartmetersbc.com/metersgrid/identify-mesh-networks/ for photos of “cell relay routers”.
2) In California the public utilities commission is under scrutiny for misrepresentation, possible collusion, etc. 1000s of emails have been required by the court, and many appear to be incriminating.
The last meeting with Chair Peevey, and smeter protesters calling for hi, and the commissioners who colluded to be prosecuted.
3) Arizona had a hearing which was similar to ours re. Fortis. The decision was already made and the commissioners refused to allow facts to get in the way. But they are angry at the extortion — $5 a month!! If we had such an amount I bet there would be at least 300,000 homes opting out.
4) From a former employee of a smeter company re. Nevada. One house fire where evidence points to a smeter, the utiity said because the smeter kept arcing, the fire couldn’t have been caused by the smeter. Experts have told me that the arcing is an indication of a problem. If the smeter had been designed properly, the power would have been cut by it to eliminate the arcing.

Jerry Flynn and countless others have been trying to educate the unknowing masses as to the real dangers posed by the insane proliferation of wireless devices in our modern world, yet nobody in a position of authority in our government seems able to understand the real and imminent threats to citizen’s health, privacy, safety and security such devices represent.
The “smart meter program” presently being carried out by BC Hydro and FortisBC should be immediately halted and the safe analog meters reinstalled. None of the Safety Code 6 guidelines take into account the detrimental voltage gated calcium channel effects caused by low level pulsed microwave radiation on the human body. There is more than ample scientific evidence showing the irreversible damage caused by such effects — one has only to look and read to discover the danger of allowing wireless technology to multiply. SMART METERS ARE AN EXPENSIVE AND DANGEROUS THREAT TO THIS AND FUTURE HUMANITY.
STOP THE INSANITY BEFORE MORE DAMAGE IS DONE!!
From a member, wintering in Mexico:
Sharon… there has been opposition building here in Mexico against the Federal Electricity Commission (Comisión Federal de Electricidad) or CFE smart meter program …. here it’s kinda being installed in a hap hazard manner and there are no wireless collection sites on poles as of yet… we have seen a number of emails pass buy urging folks (in Spanish) to not allow the installers to put the new meters in. It should be noted that the Mexican Federal Electricity Commission is no small back woodsy third world operation… it has a power generation capacity of nearly 6 times that of BC Hydro 11,000mw vs Mexicos 57,000MW and has a large and very successful nuke generation plant… Mexico sells some of their excess generating surplus to the USA through a Baja to California transmission line interconnection up the Imperial Valley to the Inland Empire and LA
…generally the smart meter installers reluctantly back down (they are on commission too) and often re-install the analogue meters because there is no specific mandate in legislation to install them as happened with the Liberals and BC Hydro. Rather the ‘smart meters’ and sometimes pure digital meters are simply being installed as part of an ongoing infrastructure improvement program, or whenever an analogue breaks down. I have seen email stuff and even a poster with your fingerprints on it… often coming from expats and snowbirds from Canada and the USA telling the Nationals here of the dangers of the smart meter program.

Router installed without consent of Asbestos couple: Hydro-Québec backtracks
Three months after the installation of a router on its property without permission, an Asbestos couple is finally successful. Hydro-Québec removed the device last week.
This is a victory for Ginette Gagné-Julien and Michel Gagné, who invested a lot of energy to prove that the corporation had mistakenly installed the router on their property.
Ginette Gagné-Julien was relieved that Hydro-Québec decided to remove the router. “I was very happy. I could not wait until it was removed. They installed it on September 17,” she said.
The Asbestos resident said she experienced health problems shortly after installation of the device that can receive and transmit data from nearby smart meters. Tight feeling in the throat, headaches, insomnia, ringing in the ears are some of the symptoms she said she felt.
The battle to remove the router has been difficult. “I sent a lot of complaints, letters. I was swung from one attendant to anoother,’’ said Mrs. Julien-Gagné. She had, among other things, to prove that Hydro-Québec had no easement on her property. “I had to go to the land register, to contact a notary. It certainly involves a lot of actions. »
Initially, the corporation argued that the router was installed on its own equipment located within a public right of way. This is false, according to the notary who made the verification and whose written statement was sent to Hydro-Québec.
These steps cost the couple several hundred dollars and took a lot of time. “I feel that they had no right to come here and install it without our permission. I did not have to suffer all this just because it is a great location for Hydro. For me, we live in a serene living environment and I want it to stay that way”, she argued.
Hydro-Québec recognizes that the installation of the router at that location was a mistake, but claims it was an exception. “We received a few complaints. We are talking about less than ten saying a router might not be in the right place. In other cases concerning us, Hydro-Québec will not move the router or other telecommunications equipment because we were quite legitimate installing it,” said the spokesperson for Hydro-Québec, Patrice Lavoie .
By 2018, Hydro-Québec will have installed nearly 15,000 routers across Quebec. The corporation said that radiofrequency emissions from its wireless equipment have no health effects. “We are talking about power emissions which are 120,000 to 150,000 times below the limits established by Health Canada,” said Lavoie.
Since removal of the router, Ginette Gagné-Julien says her symptoms disappeared, except for the ringing in the ears. She and her husband believe citizens should be vigilant.
The couple plans to soon send Hydro-Québec a formal notice to be compensated.
