1) The European Commission is encouraging use of $$meters because they gather consumer data which is key.
“Smart meters collect individual consumer information and as a further step, a new project was developed to enhance data exchange between different countries in Europe, Chebbo said, who is also the general manager for EMEA energy at SAP, an independent software manufacturer.
A project called FLEXICIENCY, supported by SAP, was developed as a marketplace for exchange among distributors and retails in terms of information and services in the area of energy efficiency demand management and quality of services delivered to the customers.
“The commission wants to make more data available, the more data you have, the more you can innovate,” he said adding that smart meters will ease this process.”
2) The FCC in the US is looking to entice companies to sell the frequencies used for TV to cell phone companies because TV has lower frequencies, e.g. 600 MHz, and these penetrate buildings and people better than higher frequencies. The lower frequencies are much more damaging to the human organs and bodies.
“For anyone in the U.S. who wants better cell coverage, an auction that began late Tuesday may be the start of a brighter future.
It will end with some TV channels reassigned to cellular, helping mobile networks cover more ground and cut through walls better than they do now.”
3) People in Illinois are getting concerned because the utilities there are forcing smeters on them.
4) 560 Hydro poles in Smithers are being replaced. Are these wooden or concrete poles? Due to corrosion?

5) Another lawsuit against smeters, this one in Colorado by a mother whose son died of cancer after exposure to high levels of RF from a cell transmitter at university. The link below is to the legal document.
Virginia Farver goes after Colorado city electricity meters
Virginia Farver, the mother who lost her son to cancer, has filed a lawsuit against the electricity company in her home town of Fort Collins, Colorado. In her affidavit, it is claimed: “data via microwave radiation and the peak power of those transmissions are typically remotely adjustable by the utility. The customer has no ability to adjust the smart meter, such as to reduce the number of transmissions per day or their peak power, to protect herself or her family from harmful radiation. Many smart electric meters transmit microwave radiation in excess of 10,000 (ten thousand) times per day on average. Some transmit up to 240,000 times per day. Although each transmission only lasts for a fraction of a second, each one is an electrical jolt to the human body and, like a boxer’s punch or a bullet from a criminal’s gun, it does not take long for an impact to cause physical damage.
Mrs. Farver claims Fort Collins City Council never authorized Fort Collins Utilities and the other Defendants to execute or implement the Advanced Meter Fort Collins Project.
Mrs. Farver’s son, Richard, age 26, died of an aggressive form of cancer. He was part of a cancer cluster at San Diego State University involving 15 people, 8 women were diagnosed with breast cancer between 2000-2006. His symptoms included: headaches (girlfriend told me he had these constantly), fatigue, endocrine problems (excessive underarm sweating which mysteriously disappeared after leaving SDSU), vision problems, dental problems and memory or concentration problems. According to Mrs. Farver, “The SDSU HPWREN (High Performance Wireless Research & Educational Network) is the tower that took the life of my Son. Between his cell phone usage and the exposure from this cell tower, there was no chance for survival. Attorney Hunter Lundy took a look at Rich’s cell phone usage. Rich in 2008 was using his cell phone approximately 2-3 hours per day. I knew at the time he did text a lot. Rich also owned a T-Mobile BlackBerry cell phone.” (see pg 7 of legal document below)
6) If you missed reading it the first time it was in an update, here is another chance to read an excellent article by Jerry Flynn: Microwave Radiation – A Ticking Time Bomb! Ignorant and Corrupt Governments Endorse Industry’s Irradiation of an Innocent and Defenseless Public.
Jerry does an excellent job of showing the incestuous relationship between industry and the “scientists” who are on so many panels that establish exposure levels and influence decisions. It’s collusion and corruption – a follow-the-money expose.

Subject: RE: BC Hydro Meter Choices Program
Dear Mr. Michael,
I am writing in response to your letter of March 15, 2016 informing me that my analog meter seal will expire soon. As I have previously notified the BC Hydro -Meter Choices in writing, I continue to refuse a smart meter, with or without the transmitter. I have accepted your opt out choice of an analog meter, and will only accept the exchange of analog for analog.
(1) Provide me with a photocopy of the most current Measurement Canada seal expiry date for my exact analog at ######
.(2) Provide me with the identification number of the meter for which you state the seal is expiring so that I can cross reference this with the identification number on the face of my actual meter and the meter number listed on my billing statement;
(3) Provide me with the model name and number of the analog meter you wish to install, and its Measurement Canada Seal certification (expiry) date and confirmation (in writing) that it does not have a Trojan horse: no chips, no transmitters, no antenna of any sort;
(4) Provide time and date the installer will be arriving. No “failed installation fee” will be payable unless an appointment is made in advance for a mutually agreeable date and time.
(5) I will only allow a licensed electrician who can provide me with valid confirmation of liability insurance to tamper with my current analog meter for any reason. I am requiring this on the grounds that under BC Hydro Tariff Section 97, “Liability”: BC Hydro has no responsibility for any harm or injury done by its employees or agents, whether done through negligence or willful misconduct. Being aware of this risk to my home and family, I cannot allow the risk of an unqualified, uninsured person tampering with my property and potentially risking my home and my family’s safety.
(6) Lastly, provide me with written assurance that no attempt to install a smart meter, with or without transmitters of any sort, will occur because:
(a) I have chosen to opt out of the smart meter program and have notified you of this, and pay a “legacy fee” every month
(b) I am a member of the Class Action Suit against BC Hydro in the Supreme Court of British Columbia and it is unconscionable that I be harassed or interfered with while this legal action is ongoing.
Please note that if you charge me a failed installation fee after receipt of this e-mail , without complying with the conditions set forth herein, I reserve the right to seek legal action against you.
I do not consent to a digital meter being installed. If I had wanted the ‘radio-off smart meter choice I would have chosen it. I have been paying a premium to keep my meter, which is perfectly functional. When the ‘choices’ program came into effect, I chose to keep my analog meter instead of the other options.
Smart meters have shown themselves to be unreliable to a large degree and a huge waste of money for the province, as well as catching fire in a number of occasions.
Also, to quote our provincial government has stated that we will not be forced to change our meters: “’Individual home owners who had not yet had a smart meter installed on their home, would not have to have one. B.C. Hydro may be contacting those ‘hold outs’ one last time and if you say ‘no’ and do not consent – that is the end of it. You will not be ‘forced’ into having one or be in fear of it being installed when you are not home.’ Asked for clarification, Hogg referred to a press release and a Jan. 23 op-ed piece issued by Coleman.“‘BC Hydro will not install a new meter without the homeowner’s consent’ –that’s the key message,” Hogg said.
Furthermore, I insist on a phone call and an appointment being made. My meter is available to read, but I will need to ensure you have safe access. I can make arrangements if I know when workers are coming.
I repeat, I will only accept an analog meter on my home
A: Free radicals damage DNA
B: Non-ionizing radiation creates free radicals.
C: Therefore, non-ionizing radiation can damage DNA
DAMAGED DNA CAN LEAD TO CANCER.
