Meters smart, but not democratic
While there are still letters regarding the outcome of the HST referendum, not much is in the media regarding smart meters
It should be noted that the HST was defeated by a 54.73-per-cent majority. The resolution from the Union of B.C. Municipalities (UBCM) requesting a moratorium on the installation of smart meters has also passed by a 55-per-cent majority vote.
It should be noted the UBCM vote represents an accurate reflection of the legitimacy of the concerns having been brought forward for consideration and implementation by the B.C. Liberal government. Let us see if they have the arrogance of ignoring the collective wisdom of the majority.
Let us hope democracy will prevail over corruption. Considering the legislature is now in session, it will be interesting to see the results of the unavoidable debates that will take place at the legislature.
