Stop Smart Meters Rally at Occupy Vancouver
Actually, I am pretty pissed that I missed this rally entirely, but I was really feeling crap on Monday. Too much going on these days! Thanks god for video! Please take a few minutes to watch this whole video. The speakers are really good and put the whole issue in perspective very succinctly. There is a very interesting connection between Enron and BC Hydro. This is a very important issue for health.

It is destroying my body, one of the reasons I easily get sick when a little over-tired and stressed out. Thanks BC Hydro, thanks Canadian government.

The people of B.C. have been told repeatedly that the province is a “net importer” of electricity and needs to become “self-sufficient” – claims that are used to justify everything from “run of river” independent power producers (IPPs), to energy mega-projects such as Bute Inlet and the $8 billion Site C dam proposal. But a U.S. electricity expert told me that California has been “buying a tremendous amount of power from B.C. over the past decade.”
Peter Meisen, founder and president of the San Diego-based Global Energy Network Institute (GENI), said during a phone interview last year, “B.C. sells a lot of excess electricity through the Pacific intertie into southern California. It’s the cheapest electricity we have and they’ve been selling it to us constantly over the past decade.” Read More.
