Letter: Freeze smart meter push a vote for democracy

Christy Clark is not worried about Smart Meter health issues, and she is not worried about people who would like the choice to protect their own health.

Re: “Cities call on Hydro to freeze smart meter push”, Sept. 30

Christy Clark is not worried about Smart Meter health issues, and she is not worried about people who would like the choice to protect their own health.

Some people choose to limit the use of wireless devices in their own home because the radiation has been classified as a possible carcinogen. For others, radiation can trigger headaches and other symptoms.

Electrohypersensitivity (formerly “Radiowave sickness”) is recognized by the Canadian Human Rights Commission as an environmental sensitivity and is classified as a disability.

The only “cure” is avoidance.

Smart Meters, which radiate modulated microwave signals intermittently all day and all night, have already triggered severe illness and disability in EHS people and in some cases have triggered EHS in previously healthy individuals.

Some people can use wireless devices every waking and sleeping hour, and as adults they have freedom of choice to take whatever cancer risks they like.

The UBCM vote for a moratorium on mandatory Smart Meter installation was a vote for democracy and for freedom of choice.
