More information needed on Smart Meters

More questions are being raised about the safety and privacy issues of the Smart Meters that the Liberal Government is ramming down our throats at an estimated cost of $1 billion of our money.

We in the Shuswap need to get informed, and if we do not feel this technology is safe, we need to contact our MLA, George Abbott (, and Christy Clark our new premier (, and let them know. ASAP!

For starters, view these short videos, mostly interviews with engineers, electricians and others who can unscramble the technology in layman’s terms. If you don’t have access to a computer, ask a friend or neighbour to view them with you. Believe me, you will be amazed at what you learn. I certainly was! You will find them here:
