BC Smart Meters are a Fire Hazard

BC Smart Meters are causing fires and BC Hydro is denying liability claiming the fires are starting at the base of the meter which is the owners responsibility. But the same bases weren’t causing fires with the previous meters. It’s not just one case in Mission. There was another fire in Alberni as well as in Nanaimo. In Pickering Ontario the smart meter exploded. The list goes on. It’s not just in Canada either.

Smart Meters are arcing and causing serious fire hazards. This is what happens when you remove democracy from Canada. This is what happens when you privatize a public company and prevent it from being publically accountable. Where’s Bill Vanderzalm when you need him?

Vancouver city council has joined a growing chorus of local municipalities asking BC Hydro to allow electricity users to opt out of having smart meters installed in their homes. But they’re not. We object and they proceed unilaterally. This is not right. We need a class action lawsuit.


  1. This would be funny if it weren't for people's houses catching fire. Maybe when someone dies in a fire they will pull their head out of their ass. Or maybe not......

  2. Indeed. In Ontario it doesn’t matter as much because they have brick houses. Here it matters because we have wood framed houses.

  3. Another reason to put our lives in BC first, last, and always.

    Cascadia forever!

  4. Agent K, have a look at this, this will tell you all you need to know:

  5. Thanks for the link. Great video and great blog. Hydro and the banks are allowed to borrow from our pensions? That is a flaming concern with their manufactured debt from the privatized power vendors selling power to BC Hydro at inflated rates. I'll have to look at Corix a little more closely.
