Welcome to the official website for the BC citizens' Initiative Petition to stop smart meters in BC.

If you want to stop the BC Hydro smart meter program please add your name to our list. This will ensure that you are contacted when the official petition is launched.

Only an official petition under the BC Recall and Initiative Act can compel the BC government to hold an initiative vote to eliminate smart meters (similar to the initiative vote that removed the HST.)

The Upcoming Vote on Smart Meters in British Columbia

-William Thomas

StopSmartMeters.ca is gaining support in BC for an Initiative vote on smart meters, similar to the successful referendum that rejected the Harmonized Sales Tax. All objective evidence indicates BC Hydro’s Smart Meter program is a multi-billion dollar boondoggle. The public monopoly's ill-conceived program is beset by technical troubles, with spotty coverage in terrain-challenged rural areas and “microwave leakage” of rapidly oscillating energy onto decaying power lines and household wiring.

The technical challenges are the least of Hydro’s problems. While most British Columbians are yet unaware of the scientific evidence showing health risks associated with electromagnetic radiation (EMR) exposure from wireless smart meters, almost everyone knows that the program will not save us any money or reduce electricity consumption. Hydro bills are now hammering inflation-challenged households into candlelight and cold beans with unremitting rate hikes that will make the Fast Ferries fiasco resemble a yard sale of unwanted bathtub toys while our electricity consumption is not lowering.

The worldwide “smart” meter catastrophe is well described in a just released, trailblazing film. “Take Back Your Power” is the most authoritative and comprehensive analysis to date of the economic, social, and environmental consequences of this ill-conceived program.

Take Back Your Power

Utility companies are replacing electricity, gas and water meters worldwide with new generation “smart” meters at an unprecedented rate. Take Back Your Power investigates the benefits and risks of this ubiquitous “smart” grid program, with insight from insiders, expert researchers, politicians, doctors, and concerned communities. Transparency advocate Josh del Sol takes us on a journey of revelation and discovery, as he questions corporations’ right to tap our private information and erode our rights in the name of “green”. What you discover will surprise you, unsettle you, and inspire you to challenge the status quo.

"The Smart Grid will enable third parties to peer into your home", says commissioner Ann Cavoukian. (Privacy and Information Commissioner of Ontario) "You can imagine how tempting the marketing opportunities will be."

"A so-called smart grid that is as vulnerable as what we've got is not a smart grid at all. It's a really, really, stupid grid."' former CIA director, James Woolsey. Sept. 2011 (energynow.com/video/2011/08/10/preview-mix-james-woolsey)

"I can state today that under the current circumstances the truth about the biological effects of RF radiation is heavily suppressed with all means – including criminal ones." Professor Franz Adlkofer, coordinator of the European Community's Reflex report
