Bullying not OK

Smart meters are coming to Oceanside! If you don’t want one on your home, lock up your analog meter.

Smart meters are coming to Oceanside! If you don’t want one on your home, lock up your analog meter. Corix installers have, in some cases, ripped off the ‘Do Not Install smart meter’ signs, violating home owners’ property rights.

Premier Christy Clark has come out as a strong supporter of anti-bullying day on Feb. 29. Bullying is an important but very safe issue. Bullies must not be tolerated.

But wait. Let us be consistent. It is not OK to be a schoolyard bully, but it is OK to be a bully once you have enough power or you’re a crown corporation?

Parksville, Qualicum Beach as well as over 30 B.C. municipalities, have asked for a moratorium on the installation of smart meters until the safety, health and privacy issues are resolved.  In September, the Union of BC Municipalities voted for a moratorium, but Liberal Minister of Energy, Rich Coleman, arrogantly informed Mayors and Councils that they and BC Hydro don’t care about citizens with health concerns.

Keep yourself, your children and your pets, as far away from the smart meter as possible, and track the changes in your health and well being.
