Not buying BC Hydro’s lines

Smart meter holdout encourages others to rally against power company

Well, BC Hydro is trying it’s bullying tactics again. At this point in time Hydro can not impose a charge for those of us who still have analogue meters, those who want the transmissions disabled on their existing smart meter or those who want the smart meter removed. BC Hydro has to put forth their case to the BC Utilities Commission and at this time have not done so. They also have to win their case before they would be able to bill these charges.

In a letter package sent out by BC Hydro there is a form called the “Meter Choice Program Enrolment Form”. DO NOT fill this out and DO NOT send it to Hydro as you will be agreeing to pay these charges when they show up on your bill. It is a new contract you would be signing.

I encourage all to go to the Citizens for Safe Technology site and find out the truth behind what Hydro is really doing.

A class action suit has been filed by Citizens for Safe Technology against BC Hydro. The following statement is from Citizens for Safe Technology and I quote:

“If you have a smart meter and don’t want it, if you have an analogue and want to keep it, if you don’t want to be charged an extortion fee to keep the meter of your choice, you are eligible to participate in the Smart Meter Class Action Lawsuit. This lawsuit filed against BC Hydro aims to protect the democratic right of each and every person to opt out of the smart meter/smart grid program without any additional fees or charges. In fact, as BC Hydro is including the cost of the smart grid program in their billings, their attempts to charge a fee for people who refuse to participate amounts to double billing, and should be rectified by the issuance of a BC Hydro rebate cheque which returns to the resident the savings realized by refusing the smart meter.”

All information including the forms to fill out to join the class action suit are included at their website.

If you fall into the criteria, join the class action suit. The more who join the stronger the voice we will have.

For those of you who feel that smart meters do not cause any health or privacy problems I urge you to watch a new documentary called Resonance – Beings of Frequency.

For all the information you will need to know go to the Citizens for Safe Technology website and just start reading. You will find so much information about how smart meters affect your health, how the smart grid can intrude upon your privacy and the fact that it can be hacked into and personal information stolen. If you want to find out more just google smart meter problems and you will find page upon page of information on how bad these things are. The information comes from around the world where these things have been installed.
