BC Hydro committing 'highway robbery'

Dear editor,

I grew up in Hamilton, Ont., where many hydro meters were in basements.

If no one was home to let the meter reader in, you received a postcard that you filled in from your meter and mailed in to the company. A five-minute job six times a year.

And BC Hydro wants to charge $420?! Highway robbery!

The provincial government should disallow it.

D. Beeler,
