Columnist’s attack on Greens misguided

Politicians following lead of scientist

I was appalled by Tom Fletcher’s accusatory column in the Oak Bay News on Aug. 3 (Green Party gets lost in static).

His attack on the Green Party opposition to smart meters is absurd.

Instead of repeating reassuring phrases of safety from B.C. Hydro, he needs to do some substantial homework and educate himself on research by medical biochemists.

At least read the report on smart meters by Magda Havas. She is an adviser for the International Commission for Electromagnetic Safety and has been doing research in this area for 20 years.

Her name and those of May and Sterk will get into the annals of Canadian history, not Fletcher’s.
