Protesting smart meters

A protest against "smart meter bullying" will be held Feb. 29 in Nanaimo.

The Liberals and BC Hydro are still clinging to their agenda of installing smart meters on every home in the province in spite of strong opposition.

How long will they pursue this? Britain has introduced an opt out program, and so has California.

An opt-out program isn’t good enough. People and animals will still be getting the radiation from neighbours.

BC Hydro isn’t accurate when they say transmissions are only two to three seconds a day.

With our own RF meter, we’ve been testing some meters of disturbed recipients. Transmissions vary from every 30 seconds, to practically constantly.

SDG&E in California admitted that their meters transmit on average every 30 seconds or 2,500 times a day.

Aside from health risks, privacy and cost issues, the meters aren’t CSA-approved and are causing fires, property damage and harmful interference.

Our Premier, Christy Clark, was very proud to announce that Feb. 29 would be Anti-Bullying Day in B.C.

Clark, Rich Coleman and BC Hydro need to be reminded that what they’re doing to us by forcing unsafe smart meters onto our homes and schools, is bullying at its worst.

There will be continent-wide protests on Feb. 29.

In Nanaimo, we’ll be protesting Smart Meter Bullying at the  Services BC Building at 460 Selby St. from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
