Safety evidence on meters needed

To the Editor,

Re: Safety of smart meters questioned, Dec. 6.

It seems as though B.C. Hydro has excuses for every problem that arises on the issue of smart meters. Every time there is a problem, it is related to something other than the smart meter.

Why are they removing all the smart meters in 47-plus U.S. cities? Because they have found numerous problems with them, stemming from large bills and fires to health problems.

Has B.C. Hydro taken the time to investigate these cities? Obviously 47-plus cities cannot be wrong. This is a U.S. observation, but it might be smart to check this out.

I have only heard hearsay about the smart meters, but haven’t heard anything good about them.

I have heard everything from health problems to much larger hydro bills.

I will not agree to the installation until further evidence is shown that the smart meter is safe and economical
