 BC Hydro's plan to spend at least $1 billion to replace our current electricity meters is making people angry and they are questioning why the rush, and why no debate.

 People will be travelling from all over the area to demonstrate opposition to the Hydro plan at the Legislature, Wed. June1, at 12 noon. At the same time, John Horgan, MLA, Energy Health Critic, and Sue Hammel, MLA, are presenting petitions with hundreds of signatures to the Legislative Assembly demanding a halt to the "Smartmetering and Infrastructure" program, before the session ends on Thursday June 2nd.

 The purpose is to bring to the attention of government and the public the many deficiencies in the plan as presented. Organizers stress that these meters are not "green" as originally claimed, nor do they save any energy, or money for customers and the province, while in fact the reverse is true in that they waste energy - and our money - in order to function.

 The citizens' groups holding this event want to let Energy Minister Coleman and Premier Clark know that the public was not a party to this B.C. Liberal Party insider/Hydro decision that in fact there has been no democratic, open community process concerning this most comprehensive change in our publicly-owned electrical utility, and that they will not allow the meters to be put on their homes and apartments. The groups insist that this heavily-flawed plan be abandoned until glaring health, privacy, security and operational defects have been addressed fully.

 Gulf islanders for Safe Technology, an ad hoc group formed to oppose Hydro's heavily-flawed "smart" grid plan, together with three other local, citizens' groups active in the area of electromagnetic radiation health effects, are organizing this demonstration.

 Saanich Electrical contractor and spokesman for the EM Radiation Health Alliance of B.C.,Walter McGinnis states that: "In parts of the continent where these radiating "smart" meters are deployed, customers are complaining that electricity bills increased significantly after the meters were installed. In addition the radiation from the wireless meters is the same as from cell phones, which many scientists have shown to be dangerous. The worst feature of this type of meter is that many thousands have become ill following their installation."

 Further, as "Gulf Islanders for Safe Technology" spokesman Chris Anderson of Salt Spring asks: "Why is our government continuing with this program when similar programs all over North America have failed to save money or energy and are making so many people sick? Why not use the $1 billion to help people really save energy by insulating homes and installing better windows or more efficient furnaces?  This would create more jobs which would really help our economy."

 BC Hydro is planning on installing the radiating meters by mid-July, spending money that has no oversight by the BCUC, even after Premier McGuinty of Ontario, where smart meters are in place, admitted there was no cost or energy savings. The public has a short time to make its concerns known to Mr. Coleman and Premier Clark.

The following is  a letter from parents in Richmond Hill Ontario to "The Liberal's editor. The parents have given me permission to share the letter with you in case you would like to post it.I have removed their contact information from the letter

 Letter to the Editor,
I am a parent of three elementary school children and I am writing about my concerns regarding the Wi-Fi technology in their school. I am a medical professional and my field deals with patient exposure to electromagnetic frequencies. I am well aware of the health implications that EMF's have on the human body and I am trained to keep exposure to a minimum. My husband and I have made every effort to remove Wi-Fi from our home so our children can grow in a healthy environment and I am appalled that they are now being subjected to it at school without our consent. This is a violation of parental rights and our children should have the right to learn in a safe school environment.
This constant low level microwave radiation can cause serious neurological and cardiac issues, as well as cancer. There are numerous peer-reviewed studies that have proven this and schools around the globe are now removing Wi-Fi because of the documented health hazards. As of May 27, 2011, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, has stated that they will be using the pre-cautionary principle and will be removing all Wi-Fi devices from schools due to health safety issues. Neglecting the facts on this issue is irresponsible and is putting our children at a high risk for serious health problems.
We are teaching our children ways to help clean up the environment yet we are purchasing this costly technology which pollutes their body, the earth and takes money away from employing more teachers, purchasing books and helping the large number of students with mental health issues. Health Canada and the Ministry of Education have made a grave mistake and changes need to be made immediately.
Parents, teachers and administration need to review the non-industry funded studies and take action by contacting their MPs and school board trustees. Non-consent forms, which can be found at www.citizensforsafetechnology.org
http://www.citizensforsafetechnology.org , can be completed and handed in to school administration.
