Not a smart decision

According to the latest news from the Vancouver School Board, there are over 40 schools that need upgrading in case of earthquakes.

According to the latest news from the Vancouver School Board, there are over 40 schools that need upgrading in case of earthquakes.

The cost is estimated to be a billion dollars which is, according to BC Hydro, the cost of installing smart meters on every home in B.C.

In California and Ontario, where smart meters have been installed and operating, there are many complaints, from customers that have smart meters, of higher power bills and many that are hypersensitive to electromagnetic fields are complaining of illness. Some are having to move. The World Health Organization has recently labeled EMF, like that which is used by wireless smart meters and cell phones, as a carcinogen, class B2. Health Canada has recently advised parents to reduce the time their children spend on their cell phones.

It seems to me it would make more sense for Victoria to upgrade schools, instead of installing a gadget on every home that could cause illness.
