My hat goes off to Tom Fletcher.
I am an amateur novelist/story teller, but I cannot hold a candle to Tom, but then again, I am not paid to tell stories.
But novels should be in my limited area and not in Mr. Fletcher’s as I am not beholden to the truth when I write my fictitious stories where he, as a columnist, should base his writings on the differing opinions of the different experts and the public at large and not on his biased, liberal-leaning opinions.
Of course he has the right to his opinion, but is what he has written actually what he believes or is it what he has been told to believe?
And to continue. My father always said, “If it works why change it.” The only purpose of forcing the smart meters on the public can only be for two reasons.
Number one is for a dramatic increase in profit for Fortis and/or BC Hydro. Number two is to rid the expense of having all those pesky union members that go from house to house reading those darling, still operable, cheap analog meters.
In the end it comes to the same conclusion. Bettering the bottom line for the companies without considering the concerns of the public.
Fellow citizens, don’t get fooled by all the propaganda, as it is all about the money.
