Give me a break!
This smart meter fiasco is as bad as the stupid ferries that the NDP brought to us years back.
I learned from a meter reader that Hydro is bringing teams of workers from the U.S.A. to begin installing en masse this October.
And I found out why there is such a rush to get these things installed.
Ask Hydro and see if they will tell you the truth.
Each and every one of the new meters that have been purchased, if not installed by Jan. 1, 2012, will be illegal in Canada!
Reason why? Because we have a new law coming into effect and it is to protect the public from mercury.
Every smart meter contains a tilt switch which is operated by mercury.
So Hydro messed up buying all those almost obsolete meters and has to get them hooked up to our houses before the new law takes effect.
This is the way the public is really treated by those who have power over us.
