Schools in B.C. need upgrading in case of earthquakes. The cost is estimated to be approximately $1 billion dollars which is, according to BC Hydro, the cost of installing smart meters on every home in B.C.
Like it or lump it, says the B.C. government.
In California and Ontario, where smart meters have been installed and operating, there are many complaints from customers about higher power bills and many that are hypersensitive to electromagnetic fields are complaining of illness. Some are having to move.
The World Health Organization has recently labelled EMF, like that which is used by wireless smart meters and cellphones, as a carcinogen, class B2. Health Canada has recently advised parents to reduce the time their children spend on their cellphones.
It seems to me it would make more sense for the provincial government to upgrade the schools instead of installing a gadget on every home that could cause illness.
