LETTERS: Stand up against smart meters

Smart meters and power lines are, and have been, installed without any continuing open dialogue with the public

I have a suggestion for Mr. Kell Petersen regarding his letters to the editor comments on the Fortis smart meters (Penticton Western News, June 5, Don’t politicize the smart meter issue).

Mr. Petersen stated that there is no evidence that they present a public health risk. I strongly suggest that Mr. Petersen attends the presentation that will be held by Dr. Malcolm Paterson on Saturday, June 13 at the Oliver Community Center on 6359 Park Dr. from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

In addition, I would like to comment that Fortis does not have any regard for a democratic process in which the public at large is involved.

Smart meters and power lines are, and have been, installed without any continuing open dialogue with the public. It is therefore necessary to skip the academics about politicizing and stand up and voice our discontent.
