Fight the meters

Watch a video called The Truth About Smart Meters to get the real story here

Since our recent letter was published in The News regarding the imminent installation of BC Hydro’s smart meters, we received many phone calls from distraught fellow citizens. Some expressed their determination to block the installation of these meters with their bodies, if necessary.  Others, already in various stages of compromised health, were close to tears of helplessness at the idea of not being able to defend the sanctuary of their homes. All protests have fallen on deaf ears.

If we look around our immediate neighborhood, the anti-smart meter signs can be counted on one hand, with fingers to spare.

This makes us wonder: If the government were to announce they were going to spray each home with DDT  and  then insulate every residence with asbestos, and nobody was allowed to opt out of the program, would anyone object?

This mass mandatory installation of   BC Hydro’s wireless smart  meters  is the 21st Century’s equivalent to such a program.

Could it be that  people just don’t care?  Or, is it because they lack information. We have a feeling that it is the latter.

For all those interested in  finding out what BC Hydro and the BC Liberals don’t want you to know, there is a video on You Tube  called The Truth About Smart Meters.  We  particularly recommend it to all parents,  and most especially to all  responsible city and town council members and mayors who still believe basic human rights are worth fighting for.
