BC Hydro is a crown utility, an arm of the provincial government that is reaching into the private space of our domestic environment and imposing choices on us that raise serious health concerns.
The World Health Organization/IARC has classified wireless radiofrequency radiation, such as that from BC Hydro's Smart Meters, as a class 2B possible human carcinogen. Regardless, BC Hydro continues to impose, at our residences, the operation of these devices on a 24/7 basis.
BC Hydro's conduct constitutes a violation of our autonomy and our right to determine what potentially harmful emissions do or do not occur from within our own domestic environment; our right to be free from physical intrusion by the state.
Active plans are in effect to advance this position before the Courts by way of a class action. We invite participation in the action, subject to Court approval, by individuals that meet all 3 of the following criteria:
We invite those individuals who meet the above-referenced class definition to make a suggested basic donation of $100 to finance the legal fees, together with an appreciated donation of $50 for advertising, administration, website services and CSTS membership purposes for participation in this action.
We need your correspondence with us to be in writing. Please complete the Class Action Registration Form attached (which can also be downloaded from http://www.citizensforsafetechnology.org and http://www.stopsmartmetersbc.ca)
Please send the completed Registration Form and donation for class action legal fees and administration, cheque payable to Coalition to Stop Smart Meters to:
