Helpful Hydro or digital Big Brother?

I told BC Hydro they do not have permission to put a smart meter on my house.

I recently took the unusual step of sending BC Hydro a registered letter.

I told them they do not have permission to put a smart meter on my house.  I also affixed a copy of that letter to the side of my house, beside my power meter.

In my considerable research I had found that these smart meters:

1.  Transmit waves which are very harmful to living tissue into our home and across our neighborhood;

2.  Monitor our family activities by detecting our use of various electrical devices in and around the home (which makes them an in-home surveillance system);

3.  Put the metering of power into a digital format subject to manipulation and outside my ability to monitor or contest.

The data I have uncovered is in stark contrast to the “helping” tone of the commercials BC Hydro places in advertisements, I assume all around the province.

It is obvious we are being “played” – manipulated.  This mental engineering is designed to win our complacent souls over to the bosom of mother Hydro.  Little do we know that mother will sow cancer in our bodies, raise our hydro rates through the roof, and peek into our homes day and night, selling off our consumption habits to the highest bidder and potentially distribute information on our private in-home activities to insurance investigators and law enforcement.

BC Hydro is doing their best to advertise this into a non-issue.

When a huge corporation like BC Hydro makes a decision to run against our interests and safety, we and our elected officials are duty-bound to take control of that decision and turn it around.

To get informed, Google “are smart meters safe?” or “are smart meters surveillance devices?”
