Smart-meter foes late out of the gate

Information on the controversial equipment available for some time

Re: Smart-meter opposition

People want to mount a recall campaign. Really? Why didn’t they do it several years ago when the topic of smart meters first came up?

I first heard about this issue at least three years ago. Now it’s like locking the barn door after the horse has been stolen.

I really have trouble comprehending the level of hysteria regarding this issue. The amount of radiation these meters emit is far less than a microwave oven, TV or cordless phone, all of which surround us in abundance.

B.C. Hydro is also faced with the fact that the analog meters are old and many of them are not functioning properly. It is also my understanding that they are not being made anymore. So we have to move on.

The last time I looked the sky was not falling.
