Recently, I received a telephone call from Larissa, an employee at Gary Murphy’s office. Murphy is the chief project officer for BC Hydro’s Smart Metering Program.
On Jan. 4, I received a letter from Murphy’s office stating that a smart meter would be installed on our home even though I refused the initial installation.
I suffer from electric magnetic field (EMF) sensitivities resulting from exposure to things such as cell phones/towers, wifi, cordless telephones, etc.
I suffer migraine headaches, loss of balance, loss of memory, deafness, anxiety, depression. It also affects my eyesight.
The symptoms increase with more exposure. I had to quit my job as a teacher over one year ago as a result.
I wrote Murphy a letter to tell him that it was not possible to have a smart meter and thus the phone call today.
Larissa told me that I have “no choice” and that a smart meter will be installed on my home or in a location near our home.
I told her that I have a disability, but she would not accept this as a valid reason. She said that the existing meter is obsolete and it will be changed.
So, for all of your readers who are under the assumption that “things have changed,” beware. Nothing has changed.
British Columbia residents have no choice. BC Hydro will change the meters no matter what was stated on the news last week.
