"You Will NOT Be Forced"
Statement from Gordon Hogg, Liberal MLA

Statement from Gordon Hogg, Liberal MLA
Here is a message received on January 28, 2013, from Gordon Hogg's office, Liberal MLA and Caucus Chair.

"I hope this will help to clarify the confusion regarding the refusal of a smart meter.

Last Wednesday, Minister Coleman advised Gordon that individual home owners, who had NOT YET had a smart meter installed on their home, would not have to have one. BC Hydro may be contacting those "hold outs" one last time, and if you say "no" and do not consent  - that is the end of it. You will not be "forced" into having one or be in fear of it being installed when you are not home.

We are still seeking clarification with respect to strata units and multi family buildings as these present a bigger challenge as some may or may not have been installed in the building or complex.

For those home owners who have had a smart meter installed and have an existing medical condition, we are suggesting that they contact BC Hydro smartmeters@bchydro.com (cc to Honorouable Rich Coleman emh.minister@gov.bc.ca ) and ask that consideration be given to have their smart meter removed. They may also want to copy their MLA on the request.

I hope this provides you with some clarity. Please do not hesitate to contact our office should you have any further questions or concerns or if you continue to have BC Hydro or Corix calling you or coming to your door.

Assurances from Rich Coleman that YOU have CHOICE

Register here if you want the smart meter removed

Note: - Contact your own MLA and ask them to support your right of choice in the same manner as Gordon Hogg, and also phone Rich Coleman's office 604-660-2421.

We remind those with doctor's letter that it should be scanned and e-mailed to una@citizensforsafetechnology.org for inclusion in the Human Rights Class Action against BC Hydro, the hearing is set for November 2013.

Your MLA needs to stand up for you in accordance with Gordon Hogg's information, which is that nobody is to be forced, and they are to be left alone once the refusal received by BC Hydro. Let's get this news out to everyone, and to the press.

Stay Strong, Hold Onto Your Rights,
Una St.Clair
Executive Director
