Re: Our choices, money vanish; Beacons of hopelessness, Sept. 17 letters.

Letters to the Peace Arch News give me a good chuckle twice a week.

On Sept. 17, we have two technophobic letters fulminating about Wi-Fi and/or smart meters.

It’s a done deal – get over it!

I’m not interested in paying for my neighbours’ “meter choice.”

These writers should consider columnist Tom Fletcher’s concise piece in the same issue (Bills come due at BC Hydro).

We are long overdue for payment of costs incurred through political meddling with BC Hydro. Hydro has become an out-of-control monopoly where politics always trumps commercial and technical principles.

My preference would be privatization with appropriate regulation and taxation of profit.

Not likely in B.C.
