One Penticton resident is keen to show the lack of intelligence behind smart meter decisions. IT IS NOT THE RESIDENT WHO IS SHOWING THIS, IT IS BLACK AND WHITE LAWS WHICH ARE SHOWING THIS. RIGHT OUT OF THE GAT THIS ARTICLE SETS UP THE INDIVIDUAL AND THEN TRIE TO SHOOT THE MESSENGER WHILE NOT EXPLORING THE MESSAGE. 

Local resident Kevin Proteau made a presentation to Penticton council Monday night in the hopes of generating a discussion on the safety of smart meters. SINCE WHEN IS ILLEGAL A MATTER FOR "DISCUSSION"? ARE WE ALSO GOING HAVE POLICE DISCUSS THE PROS AND CONS OF RUNING A RED LIGHT WHILE DWI?

To illustrate the point, Proteau called upon the expertise of Curtis Bennett, a journeyman electrician and engineering technologist who operates the Kelowna-based Thermographics electrical consulting company that he said conducts work for government agencies including the military and forestry. IT IS ABOUT TIME SOMEONE WITH THE RIGHT EXPERTISE WAS CALLED UPON. THE PROBEM IS THAT THE COUNCIL APPARENTLY DOES NOT ACCORD LEGITIMACY TO THE EXPERT WHO IS RIGHT IN FRONT OF THEM AND THEN ASKS FOR OTHER ABSENT EXPERTS OPINIONS, AS IF THE NUMBER OF OPINIONS FROM ELSEWHERE WAS THE ISSUE.

THE ISSUE IS THAT AS MAJORITY SHAREHOLDERS, WE OWN THE ANALOG METERS THEY ARE REMOVING BY FORCE AND BY STEALTH WHILE ACTING WITH NO LEGISLATION TO SUPPORT THIS KIND OF ACTION, WHICH MAKES CORIX ACTIONS AKIN TO TRESPASS, B&E, PROPERTY DAMAGE  AND THEFT.  

Bennett told council that Sec. 6 of Canada’s Safety Code is designed to limit human exposure to radio-frequency electromagnetic energy in the range between three and 300 gigahertz.

He alleged that the mechanism linking the frequencies to adverse health is missing, which can heat tissue up by 63 per cent within six minutes. 
“The last thing we want to do is stimulate the tissues and heat people up,” he said, alleging Health Canada did not follow recommendations to review how wifi and smart meters violate Safety Code 6. 
THESE METERS ARE ENABLING ILLEGAL WIRELESS FREQUENCIES. THE ENERGY ACT PROVIDES NO MANDATE FOR WIRELESS METERS,ON TOP OF WHICH THEY VIOLATE THE CANADIAN CHARTER OF RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS SECTIONS 7 & 8 - PLUS  WORKSAFE BC, PLUS EMF SAFETY CODE SIX, PLUS THESE METERS HAVE NO UL OR CSA LABELS OR APPROVAL, PLUS THESE METERS ARE INSTALLED UNDER LIVE ELECTRICAL LOAD, PLUS THEY ARE SURVEILLANCE TOOLS, PLUS THEY CO-OPT HOUS WIRING AND TURN IT AND THE OCCUPANTS INTO FRACTAL ANTENNAS, ON AND ON IT GOES. 
IN ADDITION, THE METERS VIOLATE BUILDING CODES DUE TO RAPIDLY ACCELERATED CORROSION OF METAL COMPONENTS IN THE HOUSE STRUCTURE AND ELECTRICAL SYSTEM. 
SO WHY IS ANY COUNCIL HESITATING AT ALL IF THERE ARE SERIOUS QUESTIONS OF ILLEGALITY ON SO MANY FRONTS??  
At the end of the presentation, Proteau asked council for a moratorium on the installation of the smart meters, and that the city donate space in the South Okanagan Events Centre to allow for a full information session featuring B.C. Hydro, Fortis and others interested in the impacts of smart meter technology. PLEASE BEAR IN MIND THAT HYDRO INFO SESSIONS ARE BEING USED AS AN ADDITIONAL  WAY FOR HYDRO TO LURE PEOPLE AWAY FROM THEIR HOMES IN ORDER TO HAVE CORIX STEALTH INSTALL METERS WHILE THE PUBLIC IS OUT AT SO CALLED HYDRO INFORMATION MEETINGS. 
ALSO? 
ANY COUNCIL HAS ABSOLUTELY NO POWER TO GRANT A MORATORIUM, THEY CAN ONLY REQUEST ONE OF THE PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT WHICH HAS ADAMANTLY REFUSED ALL MORATORIUM REQUESTS. BUT THEY DO HAVE THE POWER TO QUESTION THIS KIND OF MULTIPLE ILLEGALITY, YET THEY DON'T. WHY? WHO DO THEY REPRESENT? 
Mayor Dan Ashton said the corporate office would touch base with Proteau to discuss potential meeting locations, which may not include the events centre. THIS KIND OF BUREAUCRATIC PROCRASTINATION INADVERTENTLY OR OTHERWISE COLLUDES WITH HYDRO'S AGENDA AND SIMPLY BUYS HYDRO MORE TIME TO INSTALL EVEN MORE HARMFUL METERS. ISN;T HALF A MILLION METERS ENOUGH ILLEGALITY?
Coun. Garry Litke reminded Proteau that Penticton representatives at the Union of B.C. Municipalities AGM last fall already voted in support of a motion for a moratorium on smart meter installation. TO NO AVAIL AND THIS DOES NOT GRANT THEM THE RIGIHT TO REST ON THIS LEGACY OF A REQUEST THAT IS MEANINGLESS IN ANY CASE. BUT NOW THEY ARE BEING ASKED TO ACT FURTHER N EXPERTISE WARNING ABOUT HAZARDOUS INSTALLATIONS IN THEIR OWN MUNICIPALITY, NOT JUST TO SOLICIT MORE INFORMATION.
“I’m certainly in favour of more information,” he said, adding that presentations from B.C. Hydro on the issue are compelling. “Their information largely debunks the things you’ve just said.” HOW ABOUT LET'S TURN THAT APPARENTLY MANIPULATIVE STATEMENT AROUND:  VICE VERSA, PROTEAU AND BENNETT'S INFORMATION LARGELY DEBUNKS WHAT HYDRO IS SAYING, AND WHAT DO THEY AHVE TO GAIN, ESPECIALLY MONETARILY? HYDRO PRIVATE SECTOR HAS A VESTED INTEREST IN PRESENTING A SKEWED POINT OF VIEW WHICH FAVOURS THEIR OWN PROFIT MARGIN.
Coun. Wes Hopkin touched on one of Bennett’s earlier points about scientific studies conducted on the frequencies heating skin, suggesting he include the “peer-reviewed research” as part of the information to be presented during the proposed open house.
Bennett replied that the “peer review is called electricity,” going on to describe how the frequencies could treat people “like a hunk of meat in a microwave.” IN OTHER WORDS, THIS IS NOT ABOUT ONE WHITE PAPER OPINION VERSUS ANOTHER, THIS IS BLACK AND WHITE ELECTRICAL SCIENCE.
“I was talking about peer-reviewed research, pieces of evidence that appears in a journal,” Hopkin said. THIS IS A REDIRECT AWAY FROM THE HARD FACTS OF ESTABLISHED ELECTRICAL SCIENCE.
“If you look at Safety Code 6, you’re not given the electrical properties. … That’s the controversy,” he said. WHAT CONTROVERSY?
Ashton added that the city would remain “with the status quo” for now, as Penticton is installing a somewhat different technology with ARM devices. DIFFERENT? NO, ARM ARE NOT DIFFERENT IF WIRELESS. SO THE CITY COUNCIL IS OPTING TO STAY WITH WHAT IS CLEARLY A LEGAL VIOLATION ON MULTIPLE FRONTS???

we need more actions

I heard the Penticton City Council is going to eliminate its 2012 budget deficit of $1.3M by cutting costs and dipping into its surplus and reserves. This decision I believe was reached after three long days of budget deliberations that included staff presentations and exhausting discussions on how to save every nickel and dime. And of course, the fruits of such policies will be reaped by common people in a form of elevated taxes life costs and a quickly increasing number of advance loans. I know the council also devoting much of the meetings to discussions on where to best invest the city’s money, for example in tourism and waterfront. But we definitively need more actions and reforms from the Government’s side.

Smart/AMR meters

 

In case anyone missed it, Common Ground magazine recently published a report on the "Not So Smart Meters."  http://www.commonground.ca/iss/243/cg243_smartmeters.shtml
