Life in a microwave

Last week the crews from Corix descended on Tanner Ridge like a swarm of locusts

Last week the crews from Corix descended on Tanner Ridge like a swarm of locusts and changed all the meters that they could over to the new radio transmissions station smart meters.

I asked a man I was told was the crew boss where the reception/transmission towers were and he looked at me as if I was from Mars and said the meters were talking to the hydro poles. Obviously I now live in a Douglas Adams world microwave.

Now I wonder what will happen to the birds and insects and even the trees in my neighbourhood. Will they disappear?

If the man tells me radio stations are talking to wired hydro poles obviously BC Hydro, Gordon Campbell, Christy Clark, Rich Coleman, Dr. Perry Kendall, and even Minister of Health Leona Aglukkaq and writers such as your Tom Fletcher and Vaughan Palmer have no idea what is going on and no concern for the other creatures that live in BC.

On the other hand Rafe Mair, Damien Gillies and Jack Etkin do seem to have a grasp on reality.

We have a problem with losing bees, and how long will it be before any bird or insect will be unable to remain in BC and take the barrage of radio waves? What will happen to our farmers, flowers (Butchart Gardens) then? I have already noticed a change in the bird calls here on my tree-lined road, as these meters start to chatter to each other.

Does anyone know what has happened to the old meters? Hartland Road landfill maybe, or perhaps sent overseas to be recycled? Surely there is no money to be made here in BC doing that is there?

I am not impressed with those charged with our interests.
