Four reasons they’re dumb

Smart now means stupid…

B.C. Hydro “Smart” meters. Who exactly are they good for? Not us.

Why?

Smart Meters compromise security. A perfectly good little meter being replaced by technology that divides us, leaves us vulnerable and needs constant upgrades at, of course, our expense.

Smart meters invade privacy. So much concern over a few people trying to occupy Wall Street. Meanwhile, the current government, and whatever hands control it, swoops in and tries to occupy every home in B.C., tracking our every moment.

Smart meters jeopardize health. Listen to respected researchers and scientists, Dr. Magda Havas, Dr. George Carlo, Dr. David Carpenter, Dr. Stephen Sinatra… The list could go on and on–. These people are heroes for speaking the truth at great cost to themselves.

Smart meters raise costs. A billion dollars would go a long way to improving our infrastructure. A billion dollars could bury an awful lot of power lines. No more outages due to falling branches. But someone wanted to sell meters and so, guess who is told to pay.

Now, we’re back to “smart” really means “stupid.”

When will we wake up?
