Smart Meters debate engaging

This Smart Meters debate re-opens the need yet again for the governments and organizations we need and trust to remain transparent in their operations.

This Smart Meters debate re-opens the need yet again for the governments and organizations we need and trust to remain transparent in their operations.

Had they been more clear from the get-go about the Smart Meters, more people may have believed the technical information about them that they are now sharing.

As such, it took the Citizens for Safe Technology to open the floodgates, accusing BC Hydro of a myriad of scary potential health-related side-effects to the Smart Meters, in addition to a number of potential privacy issues.

Now, BC residents are facing two warring factions of information; one claiming that the radiation left by Smart Meters is insignificant, the other, not so much. The same deal with privacy issues.

Which side do you trust? It’s a tricky decision to make, though one thing is objectively clear; BC Hydro hasn’t convinced the public that Smart Meters are safe. Until they do so, they should not be installed.

This isn’t a tinfoil hat conspiracy theory. We are being inundated on a daily basis by radiation, chemicals in our food (yum! Growth hormone)… We can’t even breath healthy air, anymore.

Nothing against BC Hydro in particular, it’s just easier to believe the non-profit group Citizens for Safe Technology than a company that always has the bottom line in mind.
