BC Hydro’s ‘Smart’ Meters: Confronting Corix

BC Hydro’s ‘Smart’ Meters: Confronting Corix
Arthur Topham
November 18, 2011
Just how smart is BC Hydro? As smart as the so-called “Smart Meter” that they’ve undertaken to install on every residential, industrial and governmental building throughout the province of B.C.?
I’ve been aware of their plans and have been following the controversy that has been building from day one regarding the number of legitimate concerns that the people of British Columbia have voicing: health concerns; privacy concerns; and the hidden costs that inevitably show up after the system has been put in place and the consumer realizes that their hydro bill continues to skyrocket as it has ever since the Liberal government under former leader Gordon Campbell, began selling off the once pride and joy of B.C. to foreign interests  in the Liberal’s bid to privatize anything and everything that once benefitted the people of the province.
The dismantling of one of our most prized and lucrative Crown corporations is a story for another time. What I want to share in this article is my own experience thus far with how the Liberal government and BC Hydro are doing their damnedest to have their ‘Smart’ Meters installed as quickly as possiby and before the uninformed electorate realize exactly what has happened to them.

Petition calling for moratorium on the dumb "Smart" meters


Life is tough. No question about it. For most people there's little humour in the events of the day or in what we see crossing our television screens. On the other hand doctors and assorted healers tell us all the time that one of the best medicines is laughter. Thus this new addition to the Sentinel's Main Menu.
So if you have some humour to share with readers please feel free to send it alongl. Either jokes in text format or else cartoons. Please try to send images in jpg format or tiffs. Do keep it clean, non-racist or sexist and funny. Thanks. Editor. Send your contributions to editor@quesnelcariboosentinel.com .
