In the right to reject meters

What part of “Stop, you are hurting us” does BC Hydro and the current government not understand?

The wireless smart-meter program is hurting us financially and physically – insomnia, tinnitus, headaches, compromised immune systems and more documented short-and long-term health effects.

It has the potential to invade our privacy and compromise security by making this enormous grid vulnerable to hackers and terrorists.

This is not fear mongering; this is, unfortunately, the truth. Those of us who have woken up know that we must stand up for what is right.

Former premier Gordon Campbell, by creating the “Clean Energy Act,” allowed the smart-meter program to bypass the BC Utilities Commission. This program would never have passed the scrutiny of the Utilities Commission. The “Clean Energy Act” isn’t clean at all. It’s dirty through and through, and BC Hydro says that they can’t afford to run two systems.

Because the BC Utilities Commission can’t, we ordinary, conscious citizens must tell them that the smart-meter program is the wrong way to go. Allow consumers the choice and don’t charge for an opt-out option. By refusing to comply with this program, we are trying to save ourselves – taxpayers – hundreds of thousands of dollars in future health-care costs.

When will we stop pretending that the environment we create or allow to be created around us has nothing to do with the state of our health and the quality of our lives?

If you have recently gotten a letter from BC Hydro saying time’s up, please continue to refuse.

Stay strong, we are in the right.
