"The legal battles are moving ahead to the BC Court of Appeal, since the government-controlled BC Utilities Commission has so far refused to implement a moratorium and bring the Smart Meter Regime to a full public hearing, which is the only decent and right thing to do given the many and serious problems and risks with this program -- unapproved rate increases, ridiculous costs of implementation, health risks to every living being, fire risks, in home privacy violations and unresolved risks to our whole electrical grid from hacking and cyber terrorism.
"In our appeal, we point out the purposely misleading information put forth by BC Hydro and expose the truth that the average smart meter emits 14,000 wireless transmission signals in a 24 hour period, one signal every 6 seconds, and whole body radiofrequency radiation exposure from a smart meter can easily be 480 times greater exposure than a cell phone.

"Wi-Fi: Is It Safe?"
Citizens for Safe Technology is a not-for-profit educational society made up of parents, grandparents, teachers, business professionals, scientists, politicians and lawyers concerned about the exponential increase in public exposure to harmful wireless technologies.
We believe a profound urgency exists to protect the unsuspecting public, especially children, youth and pregnant mothers from unsafe wireless technologies.
