" . . . According to the NTSA, installing V2V transmitted in automobiles could cost only $350 by 2020, and the system could save thousands of lives by alerting drivers of up-to-the-second actions of other people on the road, like those who may be running red lights or driving at dangerous speeds.

"That type of data collection wouldn't be anything new for some cars, however, with RT having reported previously that 96 percent of the cars mass-produced during the last year were manufactured with small "black box" surveillance devices that log immense details every time an engine is turned on.

"There's not so much privacy concerns as actual threats to privacy," Khaliah Barnes of the Electronic Privacy Information Center told CBS News last year. "These machines collect lots of data, and right now there are no federal laws that safeguard this information. And so what happens is there is an increasing market for this information. Law enforcement wants to see this information. Insurance companies, as well as private citizens involved in litigation."

"Even auto execs have acknowledged as much, with one Ford senior executive having to apologize earlier this year after boasting at an industry trade show: "We have GPS in your car, so we know what you're doing." . . .

B.C. Hydro Press Release Refuted (August 26, 2014)

Opinion piece: A rebuttal to BC Hydro's press release of August 25, 2014

In response to the recent Fire Report sent to media outlets in BC, Hydro released a press release in an attempt to refute it, without directly addressing it, saying that the smart meters are improving the safety of the $$mart grid.

Please note that Hydro does not deny that fires have occurred:

Court Raises Bar for Least-Intrusive Means Test

Court Rules in Favor of Public Hearings - Telecom tower industry newsletter article

  • Court Case Illuminates Problems of Time-limited Permits
  • Court Rules in Favor of Public Hearings 
"American Tower V. City of San Diego also addresses the issue of whether or not a public hearing should be required under California state law for a change to an existing antenna structure. Wireless advocates hold that legislative language in Section 6409(a) that "a State or local government may not deny, and shall approve, any eligible facilities request" precludes the need for a public hearing.

"The court states that the automatic approval of American Tower's applications without a hearing would deprive landowners of their property rights and would violate due process.

"[American Tower] claims that the automatic approval of its conditional users permit applications would not constitute a substantial or significant deprivation ... because the facilities are already in existence, their continued presence cannot possibly deprive adjacent landowners of any property rights," the court wrote. "This argument ignores [American Tower's] obligation to return the sites to their original condition now that the original conditional-use permits have expired by their terms.

"Dozens of antennas perched on hundreds of feet of towers alongside hundreds of square feet of equipment shelters may not seem like a cognizable impact to [American Tower], but we believe most landowners would beg to differ," the court added.

The Truth About Smart Meter Fires and Failures in British Columbia - INTRODUCTION

Executive Summary (ES) for distribution - Click link to view the FULL REPORT

"It is vital that all of you help to get this smart metering program stopped NOW, not next year, NOW. Here is proof that smart meters are fire hazards. We must demand that they be removed from all homes. Even if you don't have one on your home, in all likelihood there is one near you. Fires spread.

"Why has there been denial that this risk exists? Profit, greed, corporate pressure, incompetence?

"Once we give this evidence to our MLAs, they cannot say they didn't know. They have a duty to do all they can to get these things off homes immediately, or else they become as guilty as Bill Bennett and Hydro.

  • Please, print off a copy of the Executive Summary (ES) and write your covering letter. 
  • Please, take the time to hand deliver this to your MLA - hopefully handing it directly to him/her. 
  • Please take a second copy of the ES and ask him (or the person taking delivery) to sign, as proof that they did receive it. 
"Share this information widely. We can't allow the cover-up to continue.

 Introductory Letter

B.C. Energy Minister Bill Bennett and BC Hydro state that there have been no fires or dangerous incidents involving smart meters. Are they deceitful or just incompetent?

" . . . Any person, scientist or non-scientist, before claiming that there is no risk from cell phone radiation and dismissing the science as bogus, should remember that it is necessary to study all possible options of effects before making such statements - option of co-effects of cell phone radiation and chemicals was not studied yet.

"In conclusion, I consider that currently the scientific evidence is sufficient to classify cell phone radiation as a probable human carcinogen - 2A category in IARC scale. Time will show whether 'the probable' will change into' the certain'. However, it will take tens of years before issue is really resolved. In the mean time we should implement the Precautionary Principle. There is a serious reason for doing so."
