wanted to know about smart meters but were afraid to ask
Released by Una St. Clair, Exec. Dir. Citizens for Safe Technology
promised, we refuse to allow BC Liberals to walk over our rights and
freedoms as set forth in the Canadian Constitution and Charter.
The legal battles are moving
ahead to the BC Court of Appeal, since the government controlled BC
Utilities Commission has so far refused to implement a moratorium
and bring the Smart Meter Regime to a full public hearing, which is
the only decent and right thing to do given the many and serious
problems and risks with this program — unapproved rate increases,
ridiculous costs of implementation, health risks to every living
being, fire risks, in home privacy violations and unresolved risks
to our whole electrical grid from hacking and cyber terrorism.
In our appeal, we point out the purposely misleading information put
forth by BC Hydro and expose the truth that the average smart meter
emits 14,000 wireless transmission signals in a 24 hour period, one
signal every 6 seconds, and whole body radiofrequency radiation
exposure from a smart meter can easily be 480 times greater exposure
than a cell phone. Read the Appeal letter to BC Utilities Commission
under "New Evidence" to understand the truth about Smart Meters.
Don't let BC Hydro pull the
wool over your eyes with the misrepresentations of just 6
transmissions per day at less than a minute, or that smart meters
are less exposure than a cell phone. Know the truth for yourself.
Human Rights Tribunal -
Application for Hearing
We originally filed a request to the BC Human Rights Tribunal in
September 2011 requesting accommodation of an analogue meter for
those people with medical diagnosis. The Tribunal has now received a
submission from BC Hydro's lawyers attempting to have the case
thrown out and two submissions from CST lawyer setting forth the
issues of discrimination. BC Hydro is trying to destroy any Human
Rights support by specifically ignoring or belittling medical
diagnosis and recommendations to avoid radiofrequency radiation due
to health conditions.
The BC Liberals and BC Hydro
are forcing, by way of intimidation and harassment, damaging
microwave radiation onto the most vulnerable in our society, the
weak, the ill, the elderly, the sick. This is a disgusting display
of bullying and pure assault upon the foundations of an ethical and
compassionate society. If we cannot protect those most vulnerable
and at risk in our society, we have no right to state we are
"civilized". We must all come together to fight for Human Rights in
BC and stop this disintegration of our caring and respectful

Regional No Fee Opt Outs
- Time for Action!
39 Municipalities have now voted to stop the forced application of
wireless smart meters by way of choice or full moratorium. Local
Councils are recognizing the health and cancer risk from microwave
radiofrequency radiation exposure (WHO classified), and close to 2
million people to date are represented by the regional resolutions
to stop forced wireless smart meters.
What needs to happen now is for local councils to support community
driven Regional No Fee Opt Outs. Where the Municipality has voted
for a halt, community involvement with local government support can
maintain this area safe and secure from the hazards and risks
associated with wireless smart meters.
Talk to your local council
and MLA about implementing Regional No Fee Opt Out plans for your
area. There is power and cohesion when communities and local
governments stand firm and just say "NO" together.
We Will Find Ways to Stop
This, With Your Help
Wireless Smart Meters are being pushed back or stopped throughout
the US and other countries via legal actions. BC Liberals passed the
Clean Energy Act without democratic process or normal independent
oversight. This Act mandates Smart Meters as law, so our fight is
even bigger than in other areas where no such law was passed. This
law is unconstitutional and a violation of democratic, civil and
We are forced to use
different legal angles to fight back to stop this violation of
democracy by the BC Liberals who are forcing the unacceptable upon
every man, woman and child by using bullying and intimidation
Now we are taking our fight onwards to the BC Court of Appeal, as
well as back to the BC Utilities Commission, and continuing with the
Human Rights Tribunal applications for accommodation one way or
But that's not all the legal
options open to us; in fact, we are ready to launch another civil
action that would protect and give back choice to every single
family who wants to refuse wireless smart meters for any reason.
A recent judgment in the
Ontario Court of Appeal has opened up a new legal avenue and we want
to get this started right away in efforts to protect everyone .
But we need your help to keep these legal fights going! All of us at
CST, and our partners at the Coalition to Stop Smart Meters, are
volunteers. That means every penny raised is going to solutions, not
to our wages or salaries. If you believe these smart meters are
worth stopping, then joining our legal power together through
donations of all shapes and sizes is one way to take decisive steps
towards solutions that will benefit everyone.
With your help, we will keep going, step by step without ceasing,
until we regain the rights and freedoms so that we can live without
fear of wireless smart meters in our beautiful Province of British
Columbia. Let's work together to keep this land safe for our
children and grandchildren! We can't pass on this mess in good
conscience to our loved ones to fix!
So we are passing around the
hat asking for donations to fight this challenge and make things
right again! Sorry, we are not tax deductible yet, but working on

Message from CST Volunteers:
We are hearing from so many of you already made sick from the
wireless Smart Meters installed on or around your home. Ringing in
the ears, headaches, dizziness, nausea, insomnia, heart palpitations
and irregularities, anxiety, painful joints and muscles, exhaustion,
nosebleeds, vision changes - these are some of the most common
These meters are actively
sending wireless transmissions the moment they are installed, but
not so frequently as when the full Smart Grid is activated. Many
more will experience this microwave radiofrequency radiation
sickness unless we can stop the program before full activation.
Safety Code 6 is useless to protect anyone from the non-thermal
effects of microwave radiofrequency radiation and our officials and
government agencies hiding behind this outdated and obsolete
standard will be held responsible for their non-action.
Keep speaking out, keep protecting your rights and refusing wireless
smart meters on your property. Encourage everyone you know to sign
the No Smart Meter Petition on our website. This is an ongoing
Petition, and will be presented soon in the Legislature, so let's
keep those numbers growing.
Here - If
you have signed already, no need to sign again.
And now for a bit of
fun! A song from our No Smart Meter Friends in Quebec! See
Best wishes and heartfelt
"thank you" to all of you supporting the legal and human rights
