BC Hydro must be watched

Re: “Residents concerned by Smart Meter plan,” July 28 – Aug. 3

I am so glad that the CRD has chosen to protect our Agriculture and ban the use of sewage compost.

I wouldn’t be surprised if your article helped.

Now we’re in another battle, this time with BC Hydro. Your article couldn’t be more timely, as we just received our new bill, and with it Hydro propaganda about the “Smart Meters.”

I immediately sent off an email informing them of our decision to opt out, and that municipalities and utilities across the North America and Europe are providing this choice for their customers.

I have also sent emails to Denise Savoie and Rob Fleming asking for their help to at least be able to opt out.

I hope you will stay on top of this story as this device has serious health risks which we do not need when our bodies are already dealing with pollution from cars trucks and buses, radiation from Japan and more.
