Media snub smart-meter lawsuit

Re: Lawsuit off to a ‘slow start,’ Aug. 20.

Like a car, any worthwhile process must begin in first gear, and it can only gather momentum as awareness grows. It is growing.

The smart-meter class action has its work cut out for it. It doesn’t have an advertising budget or paid workers, as BC Hydro does. It has no rich investors either.

Many people would participate if only they were aware of the possibility and the details.

The mainstream media aren’t telling them.

This grass-roots action has some vocal detractors who would like to see it fail.

The key will be for concerned citizens to stand up for real choice and an honest opt-out from BC Hydro.

The no-risk action is open to both renters and homeowners, with or without a smart meter, who don’t want an intrusive and risky two-way transmitter in their personal living space.

Citizens for Safe Technology Society volunteers are working to provide information and make registration forms available.

Registration is key. The sign-up process is not difficult. The amount given to support the action will be up to each individual.

For anyone interested in looking at, and sending in, the registration form, visit www.citizensforsafetechnology.org or phone 778-426-1591 for more information.
