Time-of-day billing all part of plan
Let’s be clear here.
The only reason BC Hydro—which was already head-over-heels in debt—spent a further $1 billion to purchase and impose smart meters on the people of B.C. was for the purpose of bringing in time-of-day billing, which without smart meters wasn’t possible.
When they were introduced, both BC Hydro and BC Liberal politicians denied that this type of billing was even being contemplated, but now that the Liberals have again lied their way back into government, they are changing their tune.
Problem is, we have far too many people in B.C. willing to swallow whatever the Liberals come up with to quiet the masses.
Shame on them, and shame on the Liberals. Now they are attempting to threaten and intimidate those who didn’t surrender willingly. In an effort to save money at BC Hydro, one has to wonder why the salaries and positions of senior executives were not eliminated along with those of numerous front-line workers, and that the Liberals would still continue to syphon money from a Crown corporation that is bleeding financially?
I can understand the government taking a cut when a Crown corporation is profitable, but not when they are bleeding money with no way to recover.
