2019-10-21 FortisBC holding public meetings re. gas smeters. Kelowna on Oct. 22

1)  Fortis BC is planning on replacing our analog meters with “advanced” ones, and is planning on holding public meetings. I want to find out more about the “sound waves” that will be used to measure usage and to send data wirelessly,

FORTIS BC announces Smart Gas Meters


“Before we file an application with our regulator, the British Columbia Utilities Commission (BCUC), we’ll be engaging with communities. One way we’ll do this is by holding information sessions across the province throughout October and November.”


2)  The schedule for the public meetings with FortisBC re. gas smeters can be found at:


under “information sessions“. Many have already occurred. Perhaps there were announcements in local newspapers, but I haven’t seen any. If you missed the session in your area, or if there were none, contact FortisBC and ask when the next one will be.

If you do not get a satisfactory response, write to BCUC — the public has a right to know about these sessions well in advance. Patrick Wruck is the secretary of the BCUC and his email is:


I am not sure why we have to register for these meetings.  Note the following sessions are being held this week.

Date: October 22
Time: 4:30 – 7:30 p.m.
Venue: Delta Hotels by Marriott Grand Okanagan Resort, 1310 Water Street

Date: October 23
Time: 4:30 – 7:30 p.m.
Venue: Prestige Hotel Vernon. 4411 32 Street

Date: October 24
Time: 4:30 – 7:30 p.m.
Venue: Coast Kamloops Hotel & Conference Centre, 1250 Rogers Way

  3)  Finally, the French Health Authority has released its report on the study that showed that 90% of cell phones tested exceed the allowable exposure limit. Dr. Arazi has been pushing for this report and seems to be pleased with the recommendations that the public must be informed.  A reminder that in the US, tests done by individuals not associated with the FCC or government had the same results, yet there has been no mention of regulatory review.

In Canada, ISED has ignored these reports and Health Canada walks away from the issue. As well, there has been no media coverage. I have written to Consumer Affairs which is part of ISED. I hope some of you will consider doing the same thing.  Here is the email address:  hc.cps-spc.ca@canada.ca

[Breaking news] ANSES recommendations call upon the public authorities and industry to face their health responsibilities

“The French National Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety (ANSES) has just made public the first part of its expert group report entitled “Mobile phones close to the body and health“, dated July 2019. For Dr. Marc Arazi, who launched the alert on the Phonegate scandal in July 2016:

 “This is undoubtedly a great step forward and a tremendous recognition for our international alert action. The public and industrial authorities are now faced with their responsibilities and must inform mobile phone users of the health risks involved.”…

the Agency recommends that the regulatory provisions relating to the distance from radioelectric devices that can be placed near the body be modified so that compliance verification measures for SARs are carried out on contact (0mm).”*

Subject: Smart meters

Hello Aaron:

Thanks for the recent smart meter article in the Peace Arch News about community-minded BC Hydro threatening another ill person with electrical disconnection. It makes me proud to be a British Columbia resident.

BC Hydro is blatantly lying about the smart meter ‘safety’ factors, about the transmission times, and about virtually everything else. See the link below to the David Carpenter article.

Will McMartin of the Tyee did some excellent 2011 reporting on the nefarious nature of the smart meter issue, which explains in large part why the meters needed to be bolted to your home in a deliberate ‘blitzkrieg’ before you even knew what they were. If you had understood the implications, you would not have permitted it.


Cutting off power, especially to the sick and elderly, makes BC Hydro a de facto domestic terrorist organization. Removal of electricity effectively murders one financially, socially, potentially in a medical sense, and possibly physically. We have accepted as a society however that this is irrelevant as long as any ignorant tin-foil-hats that resist can be effectively silenced, ridiculed, or otherwise suppressed. This could not be done without the ‘look-in-the-other-direction’ consent of our MLA’s, and with the almost full cooperation of our wireless-owned mainstream ‘media’.  Any MLA that I’ve spoken with goes to to great lengths to avoid the issue and deny it exists, ignoring independent science which clearly shows harm. An unspoken and rigidly self-protective ‘cone-of-silence’ regarding the smart meter program is seemingly maintained across all parties. Isn’t that called a ‘cartel’? One gets the impression that any slight public slip of the smart meter’s many myriad problems would open the heavens and bring the entire fetid, stinking, rotting mess down at the feet of those responsible.

The only politician I am aware of who has spoken out on this issue is Mayor John Ranns of Metchosin. The mainstream media, including yours, refused to publish his opinion piece, which had to be printed on a private website.  [https://electroplague.com/2014/04/23/media-refuse-to-publish-mayors-critique-of-smart-meters/

or  https://smartgridawareness.org/2014/04/28/mayor-makes-appeal-to-conscience-of-legislators-on-smart-meters/]

Even Mayors of major Canadian cities must be silenced. Long live ‘democracy’. This issue has done massive damage to the public trust which will never be recovered until the issue is taken out of the shadows and dealt with in a responsible manner in the light of day.

Our public health ‘authorities’, who have and had the ability to halt this unfortunate program, looked in the other direction and have participated in deceiving the public as to the potential for adverse health effects. The ‘Provincial Health Office’ should rightfully be renamed to the ‘Wireless Provincial Health Office’ to more accurately portray whose health it protects.

The most knowledgeable person in BC is Sharon Noble in Victoria, who physically delivered a 450 page report on smart meter fires to the legislation a couple of years ago, and who is treated by legislators in Victoria with a level of fear and loathing approaching paranoia. Maybe they have something to hide? If you do any further articles on this subject you should be speaking with her, assuming your editor would permit it.

In 2022 FortisBC will start forcing wireless water meters into our basements, using the same fascist tactics, lies, and spins that have been permitted to work for BC Hydro, and we’ll go through the same process of cutting off water to people. Viva ‘democracy’.

The storyline you should be watching and reporting on is ‘5G’ which is an extremely dangerous and unneeded technology which will directly threaten the health of the entire population. But reporting on that, I suspect, would be the instant end of your career.

I may sound cynical here because I am, but those of us who have investigated this subject in depth do genuinely thank you for your article. It just doesn’t go anywhere near far enough.

Good luck.

Ron Ramsey

Subject: South Surrey man allows smart meter installation ‘under duress’

Re: South Surrey man allows smart meter installation ‘under duress’

Dear Mr. Hinks,

It is disappointing that you did not have scientific facts when you wrote your recent “smart” meter story.

The former Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Perry Kendall, replied to several of my emails, where I requested to see the science that smart meters are safe.  After numerous requests, he was unable to provide a single scientific document.  Since my email was rather personal, he did concede that, personally, he does not make any claims that smart meter radiation is safe!   

I also had the opportunity to speak at length with a government advisor to the BC Government, and was assured: “No, BC has NO experts!”, as is falsely claimed in all governmental form letters.  I was informed that all they have are policy advisors, with no training in the radiation field whatsoever.

The BC Government and BC Hydro are flying by the seat of their pants, while British Columbians have become conscripted lab rats, in a monumental, uncontrolled biological experiment.

Since you are like the vast majority of the population, with no science knowledge in this highly specialized field, you might like to take the opportunity to remedy your lack of knowledge, which will be helpful when you write more articles on this subject.

(2:40 min.)

The academy shown in the video educates doctors, architects, building biologists, etc.

Dr. Loredo Ritter explains, in the short video, what health effects this unnatural voltage has on the human body.

This experiment can easily be replicated by anyone with the aid of a ‘body voltage meter’, or even a regular AC voltage meter, as found in every hardware store.

You will learn that our bodies attract electricity, even at a distance of 6 feet, from the electrical wiring which, in Canada, are unshielded.

For in depth science:  https://bioinitiative.org/

“Bioeffects are clearly established to occur with very low exposure levels (non-thermal levels) to electromagnetic fields and radiofrequency radiation exposures.”

  • The Bio Initiative 2012 Report has been prepared by 29 authors from ten countries, ten holding medical degrees (MDs), 21 PhDs, and three MsC, MA or MPHs.  Among the authors are three former presidents of the Bioelectromagnetics Society, and five full members of BEMS.


Nearly 4000 scientists, as well as thousands of medical professionals and 1300 organizations, added their names to the 5G Space Appeal, which astonishingly remains largely unreported by mainstream media.

The signatures will take up more than 4,000 pages. The list of scientists alone will take up 100 pages. It will be difficult to ignore and will force government officials, for the first time in over 120 years, to pay attention to what radio waves are doing to our world.

  • Unfortunately the telecom industry, including BC Hydro and the BC Government, have chosen to follow the playbook of big tobacco and the asbestos industry.

Scientists from around the world, including the eminent Canadian Cancer Researcher, Dr. Anthony Miller, have completely changed their position, in light of the recent wave of research on RF radiation proving adverse health effects.  It is well worth, for any journalist of caliber, to becoming familiar with the overwhelming scientific evidence of harm.

Perhaps you are too young to remember the governmental health fiascos of asbestos, DDT, formaldehyde and a host of other bio-toxins, which were hailed as perfectly safe by our governments and even received generous subsidies.

It is highly regrettable to see journalists let themselves be easily handled by government and BC Hydro officials, which apparently are not accountable to anyone.

One simple question remains:  Can thousands of scientist and medical experts, who signed international medical and science appeals on the dangers of non-ionizing radiation, which inundates every corner of life, be wrong?   

Kind regards,

Marcus Schluschen
