Hundreds across BC rally against smart meters
Submitted by Lori Giesbrecht, Mission
Linda Ewart (yellow) was one of the organizers of the Burnaby rally.
espite inclement weather, on June 14 about 80 stalwart Lower Mainland residents gathered in the rain and wind, across from BC Hydro's smart meter office on Glenlyon Parkway in Burnaby, to participate in an active protest of BC's Smart Meter Program.
The focus of the rally was
"Smart Meters = Democracy Denied". The aim was to demand a true and
honest opt-out for all BC residents, with or without a wireless
smart meter. Everyone, not just a few, deserves a real choice.
Other speakers included
Farren Lander, an environmental consultant who specializes in
electromagnetic fields assessment and has worked tirelessly to raise
awareness around this issue, and Liz Walker, who has an extensive
background in environmental activism and stewardship.
A report card for the
current Liberal Government was launched, for BC Hydro customers to
send to their MLA's and MP's. Future report cards will be issued to
shed light on any progress that is made with regards to the delivery
of energy in this province.
