Smart Meter Action Kit
This "Smart Meter" Action Kit contains valuable information about so-called "Smart Meters." Conveniently, this information is being withheld by hydro and power authorities in hopes that deployment will go ahead unchallenged, without sufficient research into the health, safety and security issues involved.

NO-FEE OPT-OUT REGISTRATION NOTICE (BC HYDRO)
(INSTRUCTIONS for No-Fee Opt-Out Notice (BC HYDRO)
Addressed to Medical Professionals. Useful to all. Updated November 17, 2013
The following package is for those who wish to approach their doctors with information regarding the possible health risks from non-thermal microwave radiation. It contains links organized into specific health effect categories. These links can be printed out according to personal areas of need or concern, and used to start a dialogue with doctors who may not as yet have associated certain health conditions with EMF or RF exposure.
The introductory letter on pages 1 and 2 contains a link to the entire list, and may be useful to your doctor as a reference tool.
"Dear Medical Professional:
"Your patient has asked us for support in providing you with information regarding the possible health risks from non-thermal microwave radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation, recently reclassified by the WHO/IARC as a Class 2B, possible human carcinogen.
"This WHO risk category also includes lead, DDT, chloroform, and dioxane, and is relevant to all wireless devices emitting radiofrequency electromagnetic fields, including cordless phones, cell phones, IPads, Wi-Fi routers, wireless games, baby monitors, and smart meters . . .
"Many doctors have already given medical advice to their patients by way of a medical letter or note on a prescription form stating that the patient should avoid, for medical reasons, living in a residence or residential complex at which a wireless meter is operating in order to maintain their health or avoid aggravating a medical condition. This medical advice stating the health condition and advising the patient that they should avoid ongoing exposure to wireless radiofrequency and smart meter emissions will allow your patient to participate in the Human Rights Action currently underway. We are hopeful that the individual's right to protect their health as advised by their medical doctor will be upheld by the Human Rights Tribunal, and this forced exposure within their own home to undesirable microwave radiofrequency emissions will be replaced with reasonable and respectful accommodation by BC Hydro . . . "

B.C. Hydro Commercial Customers are now included in the CSTS class Action against BC Hydro
Until now (December 2013) BC Hydro has excluded business and commercial customers from their "Choices" program.
So, as of December 2, BC Hydro Commercial accountholders have been incorporated into the Civil Class Action against BC Hydro.
The following form is to be completed by those who fit the Class membership criteria listed on the form:
Response to Questions re Method of BC Hydro Smart Meter Refusal
A question we are asked frequently is whether people can still participate in the civil lawsuit against BC Hydro if they are using other forms and processes of smart meter resistance. The answer is simply, yes, you can participate and use any of our forms and letters, as nothing a person can do individually with regard to such choices could affect the lawsuit one way or another. . . .

You do have a choice about Smart Meters.
How to Join
The Charter of Rights and Freedoms confirms our right to live in our home, our refuge, free of invasion. We believe that BC Hydro has infringed upon this right.
Everyone should have the choice to have a smart meter or not, but under Hydro's opt out options those already having a smart meter have no choice at all. We all should be able to say "no" to a dangerous, invasive device on our homes, without having to pay extortion fees for that right.
Any adult who is, or wishes to become, a customer of BC Hydro, and has advised BC Hydro that consent is not given for a smart meter to be installed or operating at his/her residence or place of business, is in the class, and is eligible to participate in the class action. This includes all persons who have:
To Greg Reimer from a BC resident, November 27, 2013
"RE: Reply to the three BC HYDRO 'meter choice program' letters from Sept - Nov 2013. Restatement of my refusal of a wireless capable smart meter and refusal to enter into a new contract with BC Hydro for opt out fees.
"BC HYDRO: Your three 'meter choice program' letters starting from Sept 2013 to date are attempts to coerce me into entering in to a new contract with BC Hydro for unapproved, discriminatory, and punitive smart meter opt out fees. In all my previous communications to you I have indicated that I oppose and do not consent to the installation and operation of a wireless type Radio Frequency Radiation (RFR) emitting smart meter at my Property. I reassert that I continue to prohibit BC Hydro or any agent to install a RFR smart meter.
"By way of your three 'meter choice Program' letters, you have not provided me with any option that is acceptable to me. Therefore, I assert that in addition to not imposing an RFR smart meter on me without my consent, you are also not entitled to exact any payment from me in exchange for your agreement to refrain from installing such a device. Below, I will outline the justification of my position that BC Hydro proposed opt out fees are not reasonable. . . .
