LETTER: 50,000 Hydro customers resisting Smart Meters

In response to Tom Fletcher's article posted May 10 and titled "Smart meter refusal fees trimmed":
Part of this article seems to paint a picture that only "a "few" people in British Columbia continue to resist the installation of a Smart Meter on their homes and have false or exaggerated claims in order to sell solutions to the purported hazards..."
Actually sir, there are well over 50,000 BC Hydro customers currently resisting the installation of these "gadgets" on their homes and with good reason.
Did you know that right here in British Columbia, the civil, privacy, human, constitutional and Canadian Charter Of Rights of many of Hydro's customers has and continues to be ignored and violated in an effort to force them to accept the installation of a Smart Meter on their homes and businesses?
There are and have been attempts (many have been successful) made by Hydro to trespass on the private properties of their customers. Many have been and continue to be exposed to Hydro's bullying tactics,threats and attempts to coerce and/or blackmail them in an effort to install these "contraptions" on their homes.
-As we sit here debating this issue, there are   more then 50,000 tax paying citizens in British Columbia who have come together and are in the process of suing BC Hydro and make no mistake, we are the proud members of: "The BC Coalition against Smart Meters", "Stop Smart Meters BC", "Take Back Your Power" and the "Citizens for safe technology" organizations.
Here are some of the facts that many folks with a Smart Meter installed on their home may not know...
-Smart Meters are made up of combustible plastic
-Smart Meters allow anyone to hack into them and collect their personal and private information. Information that infringes on the right to privacy of everyone with a Smart Meter.
This means that anyone with $20 worth of equipment (available online or at any local hardware store) can easily hack into and monitor the activity of everyone living in your home and learn when you're not home and monitor your family so they can break in when you're not home!
-Smart Meters leave the private information of  Hydro's customers open to the public, criminals, terrorists, foreign states and computer hackers to name a few. Have we already forgotten the recent headaches Taxation Canada faced when a 15 year old high school student recently hacked into their website?
The Analog and some digital meters (over 10 yrs old)replaced with these devices worked perfectly while maintaining your right to privacy, but the new Smart Meters don't.
-Once a Smart meter has been installed on your home, your original contract with BC Hydro immediately becomes null and void! It's a loophole called "Implied consent". Now, some folks don't know that but rest assured, Hydro does.
-it's only a matter of time before we start hearing about attacks on the grid to which EVERY Smart Meter owner is now exposed to
-Smart meters omit dangerous and dirty electricity omissions that continue to create all kinds of health problems for adults and children around the globe.
Tom Fletcher and those who remain convinced that Smart Meters are safe and that over 50,000 folks in B.C. are mistaken, let me ask you this...
If you still think there's only a "few" BC Hydro  customers trying to make a big fuss over the changing of a little meter, allow me to extend to you all an invitation to explore the information on just one of our websites:

Lori Giesbrecht,

 SmartMeters are really StupidMeters.  Why?  Because they overcharge you, broadcast your personal info and detailed energy use habits, emit electromagnetic radiation that can cause cancer, damage your DNA,  and harm wildlife, catch fire, and disable your shock prevention devices.   Need any more reasons?   Go to our Why Stop Smart Meters page.  New to this issue and have questions?  Check our FAQ page.
Now, what can YOU do to stop them?
1. REFUSE SMART METERS (on your home, business and in your community). 
If you still have an analog meter:
• Do not allow smart meter installers on your property.  Call police if they trespass.  Form a neighborhood watch.
• Send a certified letter to your utility refusing consent to install
Secure analog meters behind lock and key
• Refuse to pay opt out fees.  Hundreds of thousands are refusing to pay fees to keep their analogs in California and elsewhere, and while PG&E in CA has threatened disconnects, they have yet to carry out this threat, simply for refusal to pay “opt out fees” currently in dispute.

Letter: Smart meter picture bigger and more dangerous than painted.

Dear Editor, Mr. Allen is obviously very tuned in to the provincial big picture when it comes to smart meters and BC Hydro, but unfortunately, it is far larger and much worse than even he (and the majority of the population) is aware.

Dear Editor,
Mr. Allen [Lies make inevitable unacceptable, Oct. 3 Letters, Langley Advance] is obviously very tuned in to the provincial big picture when it comes to smart meters and BC Hydro, but unfortunately, it is far larger and much worse than even he (and the majority of the population) is aware.
First of all, we are not only being blackmailed by BC Hydro. The smart meter movement is far larger than that – it is a global effort.
The initiative actually is the brainchild of big brother (ie: Rockefellers and Rothschilds, et al). It was spelled out in full way back in the 1990s, along with many other troubling topics, through an entity called Agenda 21.
It was pushed through the United Nations, complete with all the information and guidance from the best lawyers on the planet. Everything from how to eliminate and skirt the independent and government agencies already in place in most first world countries to monitor radiation to how to “bully” and lie to the public was disclosed within Agenda 21 – so BC Hydro was trained by the best, most corrupt villains money can buy.
From GMO foods, to corporations having have the same – if not more – rights as people, to the banning and controlling of herbal and alternative medicines, Agenda 21 covered it all and then some.
Smart meters work by sending a signal outward from the unit. It can be received by any device that is within a few hundred yards, typically another smart meter (like your neighbour’s). It then continues to utilize every smart meter between your home and the nearest BC Hydro receiving station, which could be several 100 kilometres away.
Any criminal with $20 of electronic equipment can receive this information and use it against you.
By accepting smart meters, customers are giving in to a legal loophole called “implied consent.”
You are consenting to allowing BC Hydro to tear up your existing contact with them (one that kept the information on your power consumption between you, your meter reader, and BC Hydro) and replace it, with a digital smart meter, with a contract that allows them o share your information with every other customer and their smart meters between your house and the BC Hydro information collection headquarters.
Although we typically do not think about our power consumption as information that we would not want broadcast to the known universe, it is time that we did. Anyone can receive the signals from any smart meter.
I can imagine that, in the not too distant future, this paper will be printing headlines that homes are being robbed while the owners are out by robbers using homemade receivers that monitored the smart meter activity of the victims.
Mr. Allen is also bang-on regarding the fee increases that BC Hydro has in store for us. Many are already just now finding out that we are on a two-level system. I hope everyone is OK with getting up at 3 a.m. to do their laundry and have a shower, just to save some dollars and to be “power smart.”
He is also correct in that BC Hydro will play games with those who opt out of getting a smart meter. There will be a limited supply of analog meters for those brave rebels.
What did BC Hydro do with all the analog meters already changed? They were working fine. Were they even recycled and if so at what cost? Did hydro make money on that deal, too?
I wish that this and other newspapers and the reporters working for them did some real investigative reporting rather than sticking to the status quo from the big brother media.
For example, can someone within BC Hydro, the government, or even this newspaper answer the following questions:
• What gives BC Hydro the right to terminate the binding, pre-existing contract (one that does not broadcast a client’s power consumption) with a new contract that does broadcast and share the power consumption of one client with several 100 if not thousands?
• Can BC Hydro show the taxpayers where they have the legal right to begin broadcasting to the known universe the power consumption of each of its clients?
The most important message from Mr. Allen was at the end of his article, when he stated, “The elastic band of the proletariat is stretched a little more. It will, of course, one day snap.”
I hope that BC Hydro, TransLink, and even big brother are listening, because they are pulling the money out of our pockets now at a rate faster than we are able to fill them. Enough is enough!
