Smart Meter News
Smart Battle, Stupid War
class action against BC Hydro
Released by Una St. Clair, Langley
you have a smart meter and don't want it, if you have an analogue and want
to keep it, if you don't want to be charged an extortion fee to keep the
meter of your choice, you are eligible to participate in the Smart Meter
Class Action Lawsuit.
This lawsuit filed against
BC Hydro aims to protect the democratic right of each and every
person to opt out of the smart meter/smart grid program without any
additional fees or charges. In fact, as BC Hydro is including the
cost of the smart grid program in their billings, their attempts to
charge a fee for people who refuse to participate amounts to double
billing, and should be rectified by the issuance of a BC Hydro
rebate cheque which returns to the resident the savings realized by
refusing the smart meter.

choices for people most notably from our legal intervention and

our winning streak and all join together insisting on democratic
choice for each and every person, free of any charges for that

TAKE BACK YOUR POWER - OFFICIAL TRAILER
We have had some great successes recently, most notably gaining opt
out choices for everyone at the Fortis Hearing, and now BC Hydro
coming in a pale second with watered down "options" which really are
a thin disguise for continued rollout of the smart grid. Both Fortis
and BC Hydro have to apply to the BC Utilities Commission for
approval to charge fees, and CST is planning on intervening again.
Also, our Human Rights Action is continuing and it is asking for
free accommodation for those with medical letter confirming the
presence of electrosensitivity syndrome. The HR Tribunal Hearing is
set for November.
We need to stand together and make this lawsuit another success for
civil, democratic and human rights in B.C. Stop the Extortion, BC
Hydro! No Fee Opt Out for All is our goal. Help us get there!
