Keep your Smart Meters

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

As someone with electro-hypersensitivity, and legally disabled because of it, I don’t appreciate anyone irradiating me with ever more electromagnetic radiation (EMR), no matter the source.  I don’t have wireless gadgets in my home, no microwave oven or cordless or cell phones, mostly because I don’t need to be “connected” to everyone on the planet. Two years ago I discovered the reason I felt nausea, headaches, insomnia, and itchy skin was the cell tower and Wi-Fi at the university, and tenant’s Wi-Fi at home.  Now, I  don’t allow anyone to have wireless stuff in my house; leave it in the car along with your smokes.  [Note to Hydro:  leave your smart meters in the truck and get out of my neighbourhood!]  If you think I’m crazy, fine, but remember canaries in the coal mine — when they stopped chirping, the miners knew they’d died of poisoned gas and it was time to get out now.  So I’m your canary, and I’m still chirping.  When I stop, you’re toast.
