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.

For Those Protected under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

INSTRUCTIONS FOR FILING USDOJ SMART METER COMPLAINTS - U.S. Department of Justice

The U.S. Dept. of Justice is considering the smart meter problem. If they receive numerous complaints, it could really turn the tide. Pass this on to every legally disabled person you know who is sickened by RF radiation from smart meters. Now is the time to do our part and be heard. This is the time for action. File a complaint if you have been denied an accommodation (keeping your analog meter, being denied a zone of safety) or if you are being charged for the accommodation you were granted. Keep on track. This is not the place or the time to debate the dangers of smart meters. At this time, this is specifically about violation of the A.D.A. law. . .

Smart Meters A Little Too Smart? Personal Surveillance

EMF Safety Network - U.S. applicable to Canada and elsewhere (Introduction by Rafe Mair) (Originally posted December 2011)



Introduction by Rafe Mair.

RAFE HERE:
I regard most videos I get with great suspicion . . . many of them have that "Hitler is alive and well living in Argentina" look about them.  

This video which has "Smart Meters" as surveillance devices, frankly, disturbs me greatly and if it is true, even up to a point, we must demand an answer not from BC Hydro - why talk to the monkey when you can talk to the organ grinder?

This and another big question arise - this is a one billion dollar exercise and not only were we not consulted, neither were our MLA's. 

This is taxation - for that's what it is - without representation.  Hitler may not be alive and well in Argentina but I regard this video as a message that must be dealt with.  Oh, Yes . . . 'if you've nothing to hide, why are you against a little surveillance?"

The answer is that I do have something to hide . . . MY PRIVACY!"

What method of refusal does CST recommend?

Response to Questions re Method of BC Hydro Smart Meter Refusal - Updated December 16, 2013

"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. It is important to note that all civil lawsuit participants registered with CST remain completely anonymous to BC Hydro and the Court, unless specifically identified with a personal Affidavit. . . .

FAQ
Contact Us


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:

  • An analog meter. We have all been harassed or bullied with letters, phone calls or in person; 
  • A smart meter that was installed despite refusals; 
  • A smart meter which, despite requests, Hydro refuses to remove. 
There are no financial concerns about participating in the class action. We ask that people contribute what they are able, if they are able, toward the legal fund, but no additional contributions will be required. . . .  HOW TO JOIN
