BILL VANDER ZALM, GODFATHER OF ANTI-‘STUPID METER’ DISSENTERS: Why should we allow The Provincial Government and the B.C. Hydro to play Russian Roulette with our health and well being?

Message re ‘Smart Meters’ to Delta Council
from Bill Vander Zalm, former Premier of the Province of British Columbia

Dear members of Delta Council,

Please review the below and consider taking action at the Council level to stop the installation of the Smart Meters in Delta.

You can be the leader among Municipalities by taking a firm stance on behalf of Delta Citizens.

Insist, by resolution of Council, that no further action to install Smart Meters be taken in Delta until further study and research, particularly in areas where Smart Meters have already been installed.

The below report is from California but there are similar findings in such other places as the Netherlands where now they are banned completely.

Why should we allow The Provincial Government and the B.C. Hydro to play Russian Roulette with our health and well being?

If the Provincial government (ala B.C. Hydro) has a billion dollars to spend – there are many social needs, during a time of recession, that are far more in need than changing meters.

Please give consideration to a resolution similar to the rough example below:

  • Whereas, there appears to be no valid research done by B.C. Hydro into the overall effects of “Smart Meters”;
  • and whereas, there has been no consultation with our people by the provincial government about the Smart Meter installation program;
  • and whereas, the billion dollars proposed to be spent on Smart Meter installation may better be used during this time of recession, in areas of Social suffering and need;
  • and whereas, because of Smart Meters, people in the province and our Municipality, have expressed concern about the invasion of privacy and the move to globalization;
  • and whereas, Smart Meters have already been installed in various European and North American locations;
  • and where now a number of these entities have expressed concern about the health impacts on its citizens:

Therefore be it resolved that our Municipality will require a permit, prior to installation, and that permits will be withheld until the completion of satisfactory research into health safety and that our residents be provided with the option of a wired meter installation.

Thank you for your consideration and action,

Bill Vander Zalm

    I called BC Hydro one day recently with my concerns regarding installations of Smart Meters, and he told me I have no choice if I want electricity, and blazenly declared that every single home in BC will have a smart meter installed within the year. He tried to reassure me that 20 years of having a smart meter on my house will emit no more radio activity than talking on a cell phone for 30 minutes. I thought to myself that he must really believe I am that stupid, so I ended the call (politely, of course). Surely, Bill Vander Zalm can do something for all us ‘little people’. Just look at all you did about the HST!!! PLEASE HELP.

    What do i need to do to keep this meter from being put on my home? I’m extremely concerned about the health risks associated with these meters, as well as the total invasion of privacy. What legal rights do I have to keep BC hydro from installing one on my house?
