Letter – Readers Debate Smart Meters

Re: Editor's Note, April 26-May 2

Something has to be doneRe: Editor’s Note, April 26, May 2

I enjoyed your article, “Smart Meters are faulty,” in Monday. Our Hydro bills have gone crazy as well. Although our problem isn’t as bad as the ones you’ve described in your article, we are still frustrated. This is crazy and I agree something has to be done.

It’s not just the financial side

I just want to applaud you for the work you are doing to create awareness on this and so many other important issues. Financial aspects aside, I spent three years suffering and as of today over a year recovering from living in a home with a Smart Meter (not in Canada). It’s really such a drag for those with electromagnetic susceptibility that this is happening and will continue to happen.

Exposing the wrongs

Excellent article. It is very, very refreshing to see that some media people are not cow-towing to Gov’t and BC Hydro’s lies and propaganda. I thank you, sir! Keep up the good work at exposing the wrongs that are being done to our own people.

Dealing with the bullies

My last Hydro bill was $520. Last year at same time, it was $270. It’s like having to pay a mortgage for a bit of electricity. I’m not alone. What are we going to do? BC Hydro ignored my notice saying no Smart Meter. How do we deal with bullies?

Meters are always active

Could the escalating costs be because your meters are continually working to communicate and keep the meters active?
