Yesterday, on June 17th, 2015, the Chair of the HESA panel MP Ben Lobb read and tabled the below final 12 HESA recommendations into the House of Commons, requesting that the Government table a comprehensive response to the report. As the current Government goes on summer break on June 19th, 2015, followed by the federal election in October, it will be the new Government that is elected that will be responding.

BC Hydro sues Vancouver landlord over refusing smart meters
Letter to CBC News
Hydro suing Vancouver Landlord because they can't prove meters are safe
Dear Sir or Madam,
This lawsuit is the height of harassment. All Mr. Jackanin has ever asked for is proof that the smart meters are safe. Many people have been asking for this same proof before agreeing to having one put on their homes, and BC Hydro has harassed, bullied, and lied. People have been threatened with loss of power during the cold winter, despite having young children or being ill. People have been pushed around verbally and physically. Homes and personal property have been damaged. Yet BC Hydro faces no retribution by either the BCUC or the government.
There is serious evidence from independent scientists that RF radiation is harmful. It is a 2b carcinogen like lead, DDT, HIV and many industrial chemicals. Hundreds of independent scientists have performed thousands of peer reviewed studies showing that prolonged exposure can cause various types of health problems ranging from sleep and neurological disorders, to fertility and cardiac problems, even DNA damage and cancer. I would be happy to share a huge library of studies I've collected over the years, or to put you in touch with some of the world renowned scientists who are warning us that RF/microwave radiation should be avoided.
Also there have been fires and many failures with the meters overheating and melting. These are made of combustible plastic where analogs were made of glass and metal. The ITRON meters contain lithium metal batteries, which are being banned by many airlines. They can explode and burn when heated as they will be when sitting in the summer sun, or exposed to moisture like condensation. They have remote disconnect switches which were found to be the cause of fires in places like Saskatchewan and Oregon.
Further the meters are being put into a meter base that was designed and certified to hold an analog (non electrical) meter and not an electrical digital or smart meter. As far as we know these meters have not been certified safe as is required by law. Utility equipment is exempt from CSA certification on the condition that it is certified by a professional electrical engineer licensed by BC. ( http://www.bclaws.ca/EPLibraries/bclaws_new/document/ID/freeside/12_100_2004#section21 ) When asked for this certification BC Hydro said they don't have one.
In Texas there have been many ITRON Openway smart meters (the same used in BC) that have burned. In a lawsuit testimony described how the meter blades were thinner than the analog which caused a gap which led to arcing and fires. http://www.stopsmartmetersbc.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/Reed_Answering_Brief-1.pdf page 8 Design flaws led to "palettes" of burned meters, but customers were to be told it was their meter base that caused the problem.
Our Charter of Rights and Freedoms says that no government or government agency can force us to use something for which there is justifiable reason for concern. There definitely is reason for concern and Mr. Jackanin is right to protect his tenants and the owner's property.
If you would like more information about anything that I've said, please let me know.
