Re: recent stories and letters to the editor in The NEWS about smart meters.
The B.C. Utilities Commission has been instructed by B.C. government cabinet minister Bill Bennett to not obstruct anything about smart meters, including the so-called ‘opt-out options.’
They advise that we are to pay these amounts until a full review has been done and refunds will be made if required.
Right. My neighbours in Victoria say their bills have gone up by approx. 25-30 per cent since their new meters were installed. I continue to refuse the installation, but I have a bad feeling that big business will win, as usual. This is a worldwide issue, as the same thing is happening everywhere.
