Stop Smart Meters on Bowen Island
The petition of the undersigned, residents and landowners of Bowen Island, BC states that:
Whereas significant and serious health, privacy, cost and other concerns have been identified regarding the installation of wireless Smart Meters in British Columbia, and
Whereas B.C. Hydro is proceeding with its program to install wireless smart meters although it recognizes there is active discussion and ongoing research into the possible health and environmental effects related to radiofrequency signals, and it is aware that, on May 31, 2011, the World Health Organization classified radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as a Class 2B, a possible human carcinogen, and called for further investigation:
Therefore, the residents and landowners of Bowen Island, BC request that a moratorium be placed on the wireless smart meter program until the major issues and problems identified regarding wireless smart meters are independently assessed with full public consultation, and until acceptable alternatives can be made available to the consumer. Further, the residents and landowners of Bowen Island, BC request to have the ability to choose whether they would like a wireless smart meter installed on their home, or to stay with their current analog meter.
By signing you represent that you are 18 years of age or older and signing this petition voluntarily.
