Colwood in the Smart Hysteria

Really, this hysteria about smart meters is getting insane.  Colwood has brought forward a motion for the 2011 UBCM.   I am not even going to begin to debate this, I just shake my head at the general lack of knowledge of basic physics.

B174 BC HYDRO WIRELESS SMART METERS Colwood
WHEREAS significant and serious health, privacy and other concerns have been identified regarding the installation of wireless smart meters in British Columbia;
AND WHEREAS BC Hydro is proceeding with its program to install wireless smart meters in British Columbia although it recognizes there is active discussion and ongoing research into the possible health and environmental effects related to radio frequency signals and it is aware the World Health Organization has called for further investigation on this matter in its press release issued on May 31,2011:


THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that a moratorium be placed on the mandatory installation of wireless smart meters until the major issues and problems identified regarding wireless smart meters are independently assessed and acceptable alternatives can be made available at no added cost to the consumer.
NOT PRESENTED TO THE ASSOCIATION OF VANCOUVER ISLAND AND COASTAL COMMUNITIES


UBCM RESOLUTIONS COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION: No Recommendation
