More research needed into smart meters

To the Editor,

Re: School trustees take stand against smart meters, Oct. 6.

I find it extremely frustrating that someone has given B.C. Hydro so much power that it can impose these wireless devices on our homes, schools and businesses without any concern to the public’s health or safety.

Who do they think they are?

It has been proven in the U.S. already that putting on these smart meters will cost us more money in the long run on our bills. As well as the drain on the medical resources because of all the illnesses these can cause.

B.C. Hydro expects us all to just take what it says as the truth without any long-term research on the effects this will have on us.

Again I ask, who do they think they are?

We need more research into this meter and B.C. Hydro needs to stop trying to shove it down our throats without any consideration for the public.
