Sampling of official letters to and from Sharon Noble, Coalition to Stop Smart Meters in BC (updated March 15)
Ontario's Hydro One is threatening to shut off power to customers. BC Hydro IS cutting power and stranding families who are paying huge bills already for their essential service, often for protesting the extortion fee.
The Ontario Ombudsman continues to receive 1000s of complaints about Hydro One, and is preparing a report. From the comments, it will be as blistering as the Ontario Auditor General's report.
Where is BC's Ombudsperson?
We must keep sending our complaints to our BC ombudsperson and Auditor General even though it seems that the government has put pressure through budget cuts, etc to prevent these offices from addressing BC Hydro's egregious actions. Online Complaint Form

An Open Letter to Tim Cook of Apple Inc. (published in Fearless Parent)
"On behalf of concerned parents, I'm writing to ask for your help. First, though, I'd like to acknowledge your company's tremendous success.
"You run the most culturally powerful company of all time.
"Ok, some might say you're #2. But it's clear that you make fantastic, well-known products that have changed the way we work, play, and live.
AVAAZ Community Petition - Ongoing Reminder February 2015
Dr. Lennart Hardell's recent study on glioma has been evaluated using the Hill viewpoints and is powerful enough to classify RF-EMF as a Group 1 carcinogen. "Conclusions Based on Hill's viewpoints and his discussion on how these issues should be used, the conclusion of this review is that glioma and acoustic neuroma are caused by RF-EMF emissions from wireless phones. According to the IARC Preamble (54), the classification should be group 1, i.e., "the agent is carcinogenic to humans", and urgent revision of current guidelines for exposure is needed."
"Stop downplaying the health effects and cancer risks from RF EMF radiation! Please move Radio Frequency (RF) electromagnetic fields (EMFs) from Class 2b "Possible Human Carcinogen" to Class 1, "Carcinogenic to Humans" now! There is enough cancer, illness and death around the world due to these emissions in addition to an overwhelming body of science showing cancer amongst other very serious health effects, all from this ubiquitously propagated but deadly RF radiation to warrant this increase in classification! Stop playing with the planet's health and life!! Move this radiation to Class 1 now!
"Due to the relationship with survival the classification of IARC is strengthened and RF-EMF should be regarded as human carcinogen requiring urgent revision of current exposure guidelines." Dr. Lennart Hardell, Swedish Oncologist, MD PhD, Orebro University Hospital, Orebro, Sweden."

Susan Foster (EM-Radiation Research Trust) to Richard Adams, following a major proposal before the European Economic and Social Committee in January, 2015
A major proposal before the European Economic and Social Committee concerning EHS was voted down by a narrow margin thanks to the efforts of one man, Richard Adams. His bias is clear, and Susan Foster, a longtime advocate for those with EHS, has called him on this.
Her letter is attached. At the end she asks an important question for us all, but especially Public Health Officers, Health Canada, and politicians like B.C.'s Bill Bennett:
"When does moral negligence become criminal negligence?"
The Unchecked Proliferation of Wireless Technology - Letter from Jerry Flynn to Premier Clark, January 5, 2015
Jerry Flynn has been a most tireless fighter, determined to expose the health hazards of the wireless proliferation, and especially the BC government's mandatory roll out of wireless smart meters. If a technology decimates the health of the population, it is neither progressive nor harmless.
Only when the public becomes totally aware of the now-indisputable health hazards - especially to the developing fetus and infants - will public pressure be generated to require tighter regulations on what is essentially an unregulated industry.
Please pass this information to all of your contacts, and especially to any/all media contacts that you might have. Also please make copies of the attached letter and give it to your doctor, educators, municipal officials, etc. Everyone in positions of authority and policy/decision-making!
Dear Premier Clark,
Today, I am sending you a Registered Letter addressed to your Box 9041 address in Victoria on this subject matter (see attached), about which any informed person can draw but one conclusion: Dr. Perry Kendall, British Columbia's Provincial Health Officer, is deliberately keeping you and your government ignorant!
Due to the gravity and scope of this problem, I am obliged to also send it to every member of parliament, and others. This ongoing deliberate suppression of the truth by corrupt officials in Health Canada, the wireless and telecom, and electric utility industries, who are aided and abetted by a stifled news media and certain members of your Government must stop!
Letter from NDP MLA Adrian Dix to Liberal Energy Minister Bill Bennett
VICTORIA - B.C. Hydro's fees to customers in their Meter Choices program are too high and should be reduced, says New Democrat spokesperson for Hydro, Adrian Dix.
"The fees being charged to participants in the Meter Choices program are out of step with what other utilities charge and don't represent a reasonable cost recovery for reading the analog meters or the smart meters with the radio-off engaged," said Dix.
"It's clear that Hydro has set up this fee structure to punish customers who don't agree with them. That's not fair and it isn't something a public utility should be engaged in."
"Dix has written a letter to energy minister Bill Bennett to request the fee structure be revised to be more in line with what utilities like Hydro Quebec and Fortis BC charge.
"B.C. Hydro customers pay $240 per year for radio-off Smart Meter customers and $388.80 for legacy meter customers. By comparison, Fortis charges $108 per year for radio-off customers. That's a discrepancy that cannot be explained away. I hope the minister will agree with that and encourage B.C. Hydro to restructure these fees."
"Dix offered two suggestions for lowering these fees: scaling back what seems to be an excessive security system for the analog meters and reducing the amount of time Hydro staff are called to physically read the meters - something Fortis already does for customers in the Okanagan and West Kootenay.
"In his letter, Dix also asked the minister to clarify Hydro's policy on cancelling service in winter months. In November, a Hydro spokesperson told media on Vancouver Island that their policy was to not cancel service between November and March, yet Hydro customers have had their service disconnected as recently as last week.
"This kind of conflicting information does not help already inflamed tensions," said Dix. "If the utility has a policy, it should follow the policy; if that policy doesn't exist, Hydro should not be claiming it does."

An early Christmas gift. Finally, perhaps the message has gotten through.
Despite these omissions, this letter is the first statement of any substance from the NDP on this matter for a very long time. A step in the right direction.
re Non-Thermal Radio Frequency Radiation - from Jerry Flynn
" . . . it is not obligatory for any province or territory in Canada to adhere to Safety Code 6. Health Canada's own website makes that perfectly clear! British Columbia, like other jurisdictions, has the latitude and authority to establish whatever radiation Exposure Limits it deems necessary in order to protect its people. Look, for example, at what the City of Toronto has done. It is my understanding that they have obliged cell phone companies to reduce the effective radiated power of cell phone towers to levels that are 100 times lower than those recommended by Safety Code 6! . . .
