I am very concerned by the smart meters that are being forced upon us. Like the HST, no consultation was provided to the people.
The BC Liberals rammed through legislation in 2010, decreeing BC Hydro must bypass public consultations and independent evaluations, and replace electricity meters across the province with digital smart meters by 2012
Smart meters are being protested in 13 states, in California 45 communities have halted smart meter installation.
Reports from those who have had meters installed describe adverse health effects such heart palpitations, dizziness, inability to fall asleep, disturbed sleep, memory problems, cognitive disturbances, flu-like symptoms, worsening of existing health problems, abrupt depression, agitation, headaches, ringing in the ears and hearing problems.
I have two dogs and thus am concerned. My older dog Loki has epilepsy and I am very concerned that the constant wireless electromagnetic field transmission Multiple times per minute will cause seizures. My younger dog Razz — son of Loki — has sensitivity to high pitched sounds.
