2020-02-24 Regulators asking if smeters provide benefits

1) Below in Letters is the first response from someone who has moved the smeter away from his home. As I get others, I will share this info with you. If you have moved your meter, please share info with us. Send it to me at:

citizensforsafertech@shaw.ca  with “moved meter” on the subject line.

Moving the meter away from your home is the best way to reduce both the RF exposure and risk of fires.

2) One member suggested sharing info about health effects from night lights. Here is just one, which includes info about blue light from gadgets as well as LED.

Is Blue Light Bad For Your Health?

“The more research we do, the more evidence we have that excess artificial light at night can have a profound, deleterious effect on many aspects of human health,” says Czeisler, who is also director of sleep medicine at Harvard Medical School. “It is a growing public health concern.”


3) American Federal Agency Scientists Have Reduced Their Cell Phone Radiation Exposure. Has Your Family?

“The lack of clarity of the 2019 NTP website statement prompted Theodora Scarato, Executive Director of Environmental Health Trust, to contact the NTP for clarification on January 7, 2010. (sic) Two days later, on January 10, 2020 the NTP updated their webpage to state that in fact yes, NTP scientists were reducing exposure to cell phone radiation by reducing overall time on cell phones and using speakerphone place a distance between their body and the phone.

Note: She still has not received an answer to her emails.”


4) US government has given billions in subsidies for the smeter programs across the country, and now the regulators are asking for proof that there were benefits in addition to the claim that customers have saved money. Utilities are maintaining that the data that smeters gather (our personal data) will result in future benefits.


Slowed pay-off from billions in AMI investment puts the technology’s future in doubt

“Regulators have approved billions for utilities to roll out advanced metering infrastructure but they expected new customer and system benefits, not just lower utility operation costs.”



Dear Mayor Wiese and Councillors

The Town of Qualicum Beach is a truly unique jewel of a planned community. Kudos must go to the original Town Planners! It is no wonder that people from all over Canada have chosen your lovely community to live and/or retire in.

As elected custodians, your job, in part, is to preserve Qualicum Beach’s uniqueness – that which attracted (and continues to attract) its residents. Please resist the temptation to “improve” or “modernize” Qualicum Beach such that it enjoys all of today’s media-hyped wireless technologies – all of which are known to emit hazardous pulsed invisible, silent, odorless and tasteless non-thermal radiation, which scientists, globally, know CAUSES many cancers and most of today’s other disease epidemics, such as autism, ADHD, Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, Parkinson’s, suicides, depression, memory problems, asthma, heart problems, etc.

Don’t fail those who elected you. Don’t fail your own families. Do your own thorough due diligence: Here are some of the countless non-industry links for those seeking the truth.

Respectfully, you’ll not have a 2nd chance to protect the citizens of Qualicum Beach – not to mention your own families.

Last spring I had a pole installed for the meter. It cost about $4,000. I think the local electrician gave me a good deal.

It was a few years ago that my analogue meter was replaced with a digital. This happened without my notice. I just saw the new meter one day. I argued with BC Hydro for a while at that time trying without success to get an analogue meter back. But then late last winter BC Hydro informed me that the digital meter had run its course and that they would have to replace it with a smeter, radio on or off.

Since it was winter I wanted to wait for spring to get the pole in. I was also concerned because my meter base was very old, perhaps over 30 years. I had heard of the problem of putting a new meter on an old base; and the fact that the electrical companies tend not to take responsibility. BC Hydro was ok with waiting for spring and reconnected the hydro once the pole and new meter base was in. In order to get the new pole in, I had to get rid of two danger trees. They were dangerous because they had been pruned many years ago, most likely by BC Hydro, to clear them from the line. Firs get a weak spot when thee tree continues to grow after being topped.
Subsequently they kept pruning branches on the line side and the weight of the trees leaned ever more toward the house. I thought BC Hydro would possibly take responsibility for this and take the trees down, but the “expert” didn’t think they caused the problem. However, BC Hydro does have the policy of taking lines down for free if you fell the trees.

This way a friend and I got the trees down and the crew that came to take the lines (electrical and telephone) were very kind. The electrician then put in the pole and the new meter base, wires and conduit. The pole is about 15 ft. from the house. Then I called BC Hydro to relocate their lines. This reconnection cost almost $1,000.00. There were three people. The head of this crew was very understanding and believed in the health concerns. I believe he uses a radio off meter himself. He said that a full functioning smart meter in my location would only radiate very few times per day because in my area the meters were not making connection and have to be manually read in any case. However I still opted for the radio off one.
