1)    Many people experience significant increases in consumption after being smetered. We are never given a reason, it’s always “the smeters are perfectly accurate.”  But now it seems that various gadgets have been shown to cause higher readings. Wonder if BC Hydro knows this but has not warned any of us about it?  Wonder if Measurements Canada tests for this sort of interference?

How smart meters can give readings that are SEVEN times too high because dimmer switches and LED bulbs confuse the devices

“Smart meters can give readings almost seven times higher than the actual electricity consumed – particularly in homes when energy-saving bulbs are used, a study found.

Modern devices including dimmer switches and LED bulbs can confuse some smart meters, leading to massively inflated readings and higher bills.”



2)    An interview with Building Biologist Eric Windheim, who is in Oregon, helping people who wish to stop the smeter installations.  Eric mentions that he stopped installation on his home in California by calling it trespass. In California, the smeter is not mandated and people do have a choice to keep their analogs – a very different situation than here in BC where we have been given no choice.

3)    The Tyee re. Site C.

The Evidence Adds Up: Site C Is Still a Train Wreck

The best political evidence suggests that the government is not building Site C to power 450,000 homes but instead wants to provide “clean” energy for oil and gas companies so they frack shale rock and pretend that the export of liquefied natural gas is somehow “clean.”


4)    This is not an ad – I don’t put ads in my updates. I just find it interesting that this moving company is providing info for those who are sensitive and need/want to move. It must be that more people are aware of the need to escape to a safer place for a company to put something like this on their website. Very sad that people are forced to leave their homes, family, and work just to be able to live without the horrible effects from EMR.

Relocating to an EMF-free zone in Canada

“Richmond movers discuss relocating to an EMF-free zone in Canada

What is an EMF-free zone? EMF stands for electromagnetic frequency. And people are claiming health problems because of it. Why? Our Richmond BC Movers explain more on the subject below.”

5)    From someone in the USA. One of the Board members is Dr. Jonathan Samet who was a member of the IARC committee that classified RF as a 2B Carcinogen in 2011. In the face of the telecom industry attacking the decision and the people who made this decision, Dr. Samet defended it vigorously and clarified for all that it applied to all RF regardless of the source, not just cell phones.

“ACTION ITEM via Catherine : We have a chance to get the National Academies Environmental Health Matters Initiative to address the serious health and environmental hazard posed by radiofrequency (RF) exposure.  Please submit your comment immediately!

They make clear that they are equipped to handle complex environmental health issues so please take a moment to ask them to address the serious health and environmental hazard posed by RF exposures from all manmade sources, including wireless radiation, power-grid radiofrequency interference (RFI) (RFI caused by grid-based arcs and sparks which can be a very biologically active source of RF exposure), RFI caused by the “Rusty-Bolt” Effect due to the very high (compared to natural background) ambient levels of RF from wireless technology, and RF noise from electronics and other electrical devices which radiates and causes capacitive-coupling type exposures when it pollutes wiring systems.

Comments can be submitted to their comments form at: 


or by email at: 

ehmi@nas.edu  ,  in which case you should put something like “Environmental Health Matters Initiative – important project suggestion” in the subject line.”
