Smart meters carry concerns

Congratulations to the Oliver town council for voting to ask for a moratorium on the installation of the very controversial wireless electricity meter called the smart meter. Fortis is planning to ask the B.C. Utilities Commission for permission to install these meters in our area.

The World Health Organization works with more than 1,000 scientists, and in the past year has classified this type of wireless technology as a possible Class 2B carcinogen. Other items in this classification are smoking, lead and asbestos. Many highly qualified scientists have come forward with their concerns about the effects that the smart meter will have on our health and the health of our children. Other concerns are the increases to our power bill and problems with security and house insurance.

Very few people have been informed about Smart Meters and the problems with them. B.C. Hydro and Fortis are big Companies and cannot be relied on to give accurate information.

Three independent and informative experts that can be googled on the internet are: dr.magda havas/ face to face/ victoria; daniel hirsch/radiation; rob states/north bay/ smart meters. Please take the time to watch these videos and become informed.
