J.B. Sibbison - U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) 1990
"It was reported in 1990 that the draft EPA document was changed to remove the initial recommendation to classify lower frequency EMF as a "probable" human carcinogen and RF as a "possible" human carcinogen. Part of the rationale at the EPA for dealing with industrial pollutants and cancer links was that "We don't want to scare the public."
"The article in The Lancet was written by someone claiming to be the "public relations man" at the EPA."
"Government officials in Washington tend to play down or even suppress news linking industrial pollutants to cancer. When I was a public relations man at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), their rationale, as explained to me, was always the same: "We don't want to scare the public". In consequence, the average citizen must usually rely for such information on leaks to the press or the enterprise of investigative reporters. Paul Brodeur of the New Yorker magazine, for one, has been calling to public attention the association between cancer and electromagnetic fields from power lines. . .

Smart meter fires are occurring in B.C. and nothing is being done to inform the public.
CHEK News Video: Flames and heavy smoke could be seen inside the front of the home when fire crews arrived at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday.

VIDEO Fire was electrical (one of many in B.C.) but the report says the "precise cause is still under investigation."
Health-Science - international and historical perspectives
"Over 90% of American homes have microwave ovens used for meal preparation. Because microwave ovens are so convenient and energy efficient, as compared to conventional ovens, very few homes or restaurants are without them. In general, people believe that whatever a microwave oven does to foods cooked in it doesn't have any negative effect on either the food or them. Of course, if microwave ovens were really harmful, our government would never allow them on the market, would they? Would they? Regardless of what has been "officially" released concerning microwave ovens, we have personally stopped using ours based on the research facts outlined in this article. . . "

who is looking out for us? - Coalition to Stop "Smart" Meters, January 28, 2015
ITRON smart meters have the remote disconnect switch, just like
those in Ontario, and they allow water/moisture to accumulate
just as they did in Saskatchewan.
In British Columbia there has been at least one fire that, according to the BC Safety Authority, was caused by water leaking into the meter, causing a short circuit.
Yet no one, not Bill Bennett, not BC Hydro, not the BC Safety Authority is even acknowledging the fire risk, let alone taking precautionary measures to protect us and our homes.
Engineers who, on a voluntary basis are studying the meters, have found several serious flaws, one of the significant ones being the remote disconnect switch. They are concerned that proper testing of the switch and of the meters themselves hasn't taken place and there is no certification of safety by either CSA or an independent professional electrical engineer - something required by both common sense and the law.
In the attached commentary, a retired engineer, Bob McKechnie warns, "The switch is critical from the safety point of view because if it fails to operate properly the disconnect function will not be accomplished and safety will not be assured."
Our government and BC Hydro are playing Russian roulette with our lives and property. Who is watching out for British Columbians? Must people die before Bill Bennett takes action?

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?

Citizens For Safe Technology
"Wi-Fi: Is It Safe?"
Citizens for Safe Technology is a not-for-profit educational society made up of parents, grandparents, teachers, business professionals, scientists, politicians and lawyers concerned about the exponential increase in public exposure to harmful wireless technologies.
We believe a profound urgency exists to protect the unsuspecting public, especially children, youth and pregnant mothers from unsafe wireless technologies.
