- Below is a letter to a TV station in Michigan by someone who had his power cut for refusing to allow an ITRON smartmeter to be installed. He sent an internal document re. failures of the smart meter. I have asked him for more information about the insurance companies increasing premiums or refusing to insure those with smart meters. I have never heard of this and would like to get confirmation.

- Time sensitive, re. the Olympic Peninsula War Games:
Your help is urgently needed to stop the Navy’s electronic warfare testing in the Olympic Peninsula:
If this EMF warfare zone is not stopped, the Navy can–and most likely will–bring EMF warfare “gaming” to other major cities in the US–possibly to your state and the community you live in. As a former Dept. of Defense employee who worked on a weapons program, I’m well aware of the dangers of this technology. Please visit the site listed above to see all the data, meetings, coalitions, and evidence based reporting.
How will you feel when they bring in their ‘Growler’ jets with ear-splitting engine noise to your national forests, parks, and communities? Do you think simply posting signs that say to ‘stay back 100 feet’ will be sufficient when the EMF they use has been reported to “liquefy eyeballs in 15 seconds?” How do you think your property value will be affected if an electronic warfare program comes to your community? How will you feel when they send EMF pulsing ‘attack vans’ into your forests, say for example, up the Hudson River valley from New York and the mountains into Maine, or into the prime and pristine forests north of San Francisco to Oregon’s border? These areas already have military base footprints, which seem to increasingly expand and encroach upon surrounding local communities. Are you really okay with this happening in your community? Because if we allow it to happen in the Pacific Northwest, chances are this nightmare will eventually arrive on your own doorstep. None of us can afford to be complacent on this issue.
Thousands more letters are needed because the sheer volume will give the Forestry Department permitting team a separate legal authority to reject the Navy, an authority that by-passes the Navy Commander. It is said this Commander is invoking a side-ways and tacit national security authority, essentially forcing Forestry to authorize the permits. This plan to stop the EMF Warfare is working, but we need your help. A ‘Win’, here, will be a big boost to the EMF community’s power, hooking us up with wildlife preservationists and important venerable dot orgs like The Audubon Society, Sierra Club, Forestry Research Universities, and Bio-sphere Research organizations. The gains and connections we make here will be extremely important for fighting the “WiFi from space” satellite programs that one could argue are essentially a slow motion death sentence for those with EHS. We must act on this electronic warfare testing in order to lay the groundwork for stopping WiFi from space.
Please take a moment to write a letter and forward a copy to all those cited at the link. Please also forward this message to all of your groups and contacts. Thank you for your help.

- A must read for everyone with children in schools & everyone responsible for children in schools. Please share with school board members, teachers and parents.
- Good news story from a member who had the analog “caged” and signs indicating no smart meter allowed. The installer arrived with the analog. Note, the analog is not new but is new to this home. It has been taken from a home that got smart metered.
This is just to inform you that BC Hydro replaced our old analogue with a new analogue meter on Thursday 17th September. It’s a General Electric brand, made in Canada, with a glass housing. Hydro did not give us any warning before arriving at our home. Fortunately, my husband was on hand. The BC Hydro (not Corix) employee allowed Dennis to turn off our computers, before making the switch. My husband forgot to turn off the power supply at the main box because he was so surprised to have BC Hydro knock at the door. It has been at least 6 months from the initial letter telling us that our existing meter was out of date. Hydro never did produce evidence that the meter was indeed out of date, although we made two requests for them to do so. The Hydro employee was polite. So far, we have had no problems with our power supply, but we intend to keep a close eye on our monthly bills.
- As we know, FortisBC is applying to the BCUC to install gas smart meters beginning next year. This will increase the RF level substantially as demonstrated by this youtube.

- Smart meter interfering with a baby monitor — and BCHydro tells this father the smart meters are not transmitting. They probably were not, because back in 2012 there were few collectors installed. In many places the collectors are still not gathering data but the smart meter is transmitting, irradiating children as they sleep. How unethical, how wrong for BCHydro to lie to a concerned father!
We have two smart meters newly installed this year. These smart meters are adjacent to the wall where our bedrooms are located in our home. I moved my infant from the baby bed in our master bedroom to her own bedroom and I began using a baby monitor. I first experienced this interference coming from the smart meters on April 27, 2012. The duration lasted one hour. This is a recording of similar interference experienced May 06, 2012 in the middle of the night. In this video I walk away from where the smart meters are located and show how the interference lessens as I come closer to the kitchen. Called BCHYDRO on April 30th and I was told that there may be a problem with my baby monitor and that I should call the supplier and find out what might be causing the interference. This is the same baby monitor I used with my son two years ago and had no interference problems.
Published on May 17, 2012
2012-May-17 (Part 1 of 2)
Early in the morning at 1:30 am the smart meters are transmitting again. This is the second night in a row. I did not record the transmission interference appearing on our baby monitor the previous night. At the end of the clip it appears to me the interference had stopped but it had only changed frequency to once every 36.4 seconds. I will load a second video from the same night. The transmission lasted for well over half an hour. I called BCHYDRO today and was told that the Smart Meters are not transmitting and I need to call another cause for the interference we are experiencing.
2012-May-17 (Part 2 of 2)
The transmission interference continued so I took my camera outside and used the movie function to record this. Again, the entire transmission interference lasted between 40 minutes to 1 hour. The first 10 min the transmission was more frequent and then for the next half hour the transmission happened every 36.4 seconds. I have two children and I am concerned for their welfare as the smart meters are located on the exterior wall of our bedrooms
Dear WXYZ TV,
Thank you for doing the story on a 92 year old disabled blind woman having her electric power shut off for not allowing DTE Energy to install an unsafe radio frequency surveillance device on her home.
We are also victims of DTE’s draconian extortion racket. We had our power cut on September 9th for not allowing DTE to do the same to us. We had a perfectly good power-measuring analog meter that DTE told us needed replacing with their AMI smart meter for reasons of health and safety. We said NO WAY and they cut our power.
My wife is 85 and I’m 76. We have lived in the same house for 27 years and always paid our electric bills on time. We’re both retired and living on social security. We understand there are at least a dozen people in DTE’s territory who have had their power cut for refusing to allow a smart meter to be installed on their home.
See the attachment for our story. Smart Meter Glenna after DTE disconnect
Also attached are reasons no one should allow these meters on their homes. Two fires in DTE’s territory that are known to have started with Smart Meters and a DTE internal document admits the meters will blow up from a power surge. Insurance companies are beginning to increase premiums on homes with them on because of their known fire risk. At least one insurance company will not insure buildings with a smart meter because U/L cannot certify them as safe, and yet DTE is forcing them on us or cutting off our power!
Thank you again for helping to inform the public of this terrifying situation.

Comment from Jim Ervin: that document which Wruck sent me the link to, the evidence is right there on page 56 that Hydro is committing extortion on our Analog Meter fees. They are under no obligation to read our meters and yet we are still obliged to pay the monthly fee. If that isn’t legalized theft, then tell me what is? This needs to be made as public as possible as well as making an excellent case, among other reasons, for a review, or better an independent inquiry, into the fees.
Please read from the bottom up.
I thank you for your response but I am by no means satisfied with it. After reviewing the Commission’s decision I could easily see that the public hearing was a flawed process. Among other things, BC Hydro was allowed to submit confidential information on the pretext that, as I understand it,to reveal the contents could jeapordize the security of Hydro users and result in a rate increase. To accept such a pretext without question, on your part, constitutes turning the hearing into a sham, so far as I am concerned.
I don’t see that you have really answered my question as to the meaning of the investigation and infrastructure costs to Legacy Meter owners. Obviously the meaning of infrastructure is smartmeters, whose cost has been downloaded onto Legacy Meter owners. Once again you have only parroted the mantra that the Legacy Meter charges were set by Direction 4 from BC Hydro. When I want a parrot, I’ll buy one.
At least I have an explanation as to why my meter isn’t being read. However I believe the explanation constitutes a complete abrogation of responsibility for BC Hydro to say (on page 56) that meter reading is at the sole discretion of BC Hydro. Then, incredibly, the next paragraph goes on to say that the monthly charge to Legacy Meter owners is based on the costs of a bi-monthly reading. In other words, BC Hydro has admitted to me and many others that their meter reading charge is based on a false premise. And you blindly ignore that travesty of justice?
Since the BCUC follows in lock step with the wishes of the government, I submit that you are a part of this corrupt government and so my complaint goes to you as well as the Ministry Of Energy and Mines.

Subject: RE: smartmeter fees review
Dear Mr. Ervin,
Thank you for your email to the BC Utilities Commission regarding your concerns about BC Hydro’s Legacy Meter fees (referred to as the Legacy Meter Charge under the Meter Choices Program).
The Legacy Meter Charge was reviewed through a public hearing process and after the Commission’s review, the appropriate fees were set by the Commission Panel assigned to the review. For more information about the Commission’s review of the Legacy Meter Charge you may wish to review the Commission’s decision regarding this matter available at: http://www.bcuc.com/Documents/Decisions/2014/DOC_41269_04-25-2014_BCH%20Meter%20Choices_Decision_G-59-14_WEB.pdf
As you know, the BC Utilities Commission was required to set rates for the Meter Choices Program in accordance with Direction No. 4 from the provincial government. In accordance with Direction No. 4, the Commission was required to set BC Hydro rates such that the program costs, investigation costs and infrastructure costs for legacy meters are recovered from only those customers where a legacy meter is installed. Accordingly, the Commission reviewed BC Hydro’s application and approved rates in accordance with Direction No. 4.
Given that the Commission set rates as directed by government, your concerns may be better addressed by government, specifically the Ministry of Energy and Mines.
I trust this information is helpful. Thank you for contacting the Commission.

Subject: smartmeter fees review
This is to add my voice to those who are calling for a review of B.C.’s Legacy Meter Fees, presently the highest in North America. I fully realize that your commission was muzzled by the BC government under Direction 4 in regard to setting the fee. Still I believe it to be within the bounds of your ability to make my complaint and those of others known to Bill Bennett, B .C’.s Energy Minister and to not simply direct us to do so. Please inform him also that, as an Analog Meter owner, my meter is NOT being read manually by Hydro and that I’m simply receiving bills based on their estimates, possibly taken from past records of my power consumption.
Perhaps you should explain to us, if you can, Hydro’s reasoning behind the fee of $32.40 a month, being the highest on this continent. What is the “investigation” they had to do? Does that mean that Analog Meter owners are under “investigation” for some kind of suspicious activities? That is certainly what it sounds like. And what about the “infrastructure” charge? What new “infrastructure” had to be set up if not for just smartmeters? The only apparent meaning of the word is that Analog Meter owners are now paying the purchase cost of the smartmeter infrastructure.
As I’m sure you know, our court date awaits when the legality of your government’s Legacy Meter fees will finally begin to be decided.
