In September, an eye-opening documentary feature film called Take Back Your Power was released and will be showing at the Oliver Community Centre on Monday, Nov. 18 at 2 p.m. and again at 7 p.m. Free admission.
This film investigates the Smart Meter Program currently being implemented in North America and worldwide by most of the major utility companies.
Most people are still debating if this is for our profit or theirs.
Take Back Your Power uncovers alarming issues about health, privacy, property rights, corporate fraud and the unprecedented vulnerability of the smart grid.
You will gain a deeper understanding of the political and economic forces behind the smart meter agenda, as well as resources and proven solutions for how you can protect yourself, your family, your home and your rights.
In August of this year, the B.C. Utilities Commission gave Fortis approval to install the smart meters on our homes only on the condition that a very inexpensive opt-out program be available to the many people who would choose not to have the radiation emitting meters on their homes.
A meeting will be held this month between the BCUC, several public intervenors and Fortis BC to determine an inexpensive opt-out program for Fortis customers. The BC Utilities Commission will make the final decision.
