- Correction and expansion. Last night I included a document that I received from a group in the US, saying it was a victory at the Appeal Court level for $meter resisters. I saw nothing to indicate that it was written in dissent of the final decision. As you can see from the comments, it had been sent out in error. Many disappointed people. Sorry – soon we will have good news.
- Here is an article by an insurance inspector/adjuster in the US, where, like in Quebec and BC, smart meters are being removed from the scene of fires, preventing any independent determination whether the meter was involved in the fire. This information should be shared widely, and, I hope, the media will pick it up. Laws are being broken, evidence is being hidden, and our lives are being put at risk. The fire commissioner’s office in BC told me they allowed Hydro to remove the $$meters from the fire scene before being inspected because it is their equipment. How is this different from allowing an arsonist to take a gas can from the scene of the home he set on fire?
- Below, in letters, one member was told by a BC Hydro technician, that they had been warning BC Hydro for years about concerns with analog meter bases. Another indication that BC Hydro did not do due diligence and neither did it take action when it learned about possible hazards. Someone should be held responsible for putting lives and property at risk.
- From a member, asking for information, below in Letters. If you have any info. please email firstname.lastname@example.org with “Duncan” on the subject line.
- Another article about the “chaos” that time of use billing will cause. It doesn’t look as if that any of the promised “benefits” are real – they all seem to cause more problems.
“The researchers at the Institute for Theoretical Physics at the University of Bremen have simulated what can potentially happen when smart meters on a massive scale react collectively to electricity price signals. The result: the smart meters end up providing a new artificial electricity market, which can cause the electricity supply to crash. This in turn endangers the security of supply

Thank you for your email regarding your concerns about the “compatibility between the original base and the new meter”.
Commission staff are currently reviewing and investigating this matter. Once our investigation is complete, we will provide you with an update. Thank you for your patience while we review this matter.

Dear Mr. Wruck,
I need to share our experience when the BC Hydro technician came to install a radio off smart meter at our home. Please note we have opted out of having a smart meter for health and safety reasons and have been paying the monthly fees but were told we needed to accept the digital meter as there were no analogue meters that would accommodate our amperage.
My husband and I watched the installation and before the technician installed the digital meter he put in a second piece of equipment; a supplementary base. We asked what it was and were informed that it was to insure compatibility between the original base and the new meter. He shared that the technicians had been telling Hydro for years that there were concerns with the original bases. So, if this is the case, we are wondering is Hydro planning to do install these bases on every home in the province that has received a smart meter whether or not it is radio on or off?
Thanks for looking into this on behalf of the citizens of this province. It is us, the citizens, that you work for, not the government, nor Hydro.
Member asks for Information please.
I have no proof; only increasing evidence. It is those radar speed signs or whatever they are called. I particularly notice the ones southside of Duncan by Buckerfields. It took me a while to realize why, every time I drove through that area, I became horribly dizzy and felt a sharp pain drilling through an eye and my skull. I finally realized that it could well be the two radar detector signs, one on either side of the road that might be causing the problem. The problem seems worse at about twenty-five to fifty feet away from the signs and not so bad when I am driving right beside them.
As I say, I have no proof; only mounting evidence. I am wondering if anybody else has reported experiencing EMP-related symptoms in the vicinity of those radar signs that tell motorists what speed they are driving at? Feedback from others will help me identify that these radar signs might be causing me problems and I have to be particularly carefully around them so that I don’t get so dizzy I cause an accident.
