The campaign to derail B.C. Hydro’s rollout of wireless smart meters got a boost from mayors and councillors at the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention Friday.
Delegates voted 55 per cent to support a moratorium on the mandatory installation of smart meters until major issues can be resolved.
“There is an important element of personal choice,” Colwood Coun. Judith Cullington said. “Some people are sensitive to this radiation and only a small amount affects them.”
The Mayors and Councillors of the Canadian Union of British Columbia Municipalities voted for a moratorium on Smart Meters in their province. It was noted that “Some people are sensitive to this radiation and only a small amount affects them.”

Did the “experts’ give false testimony?
I just learned that the Union of BC Municipalities has just passed the motion to ask for a province wide moratorium on the smart meter program until a safe alternative is available. There are many problems with the program, and many of the councillors and mayors had concerns other than health – privacy, cost, lack of democratic process.
