CVRD echoes call for Smart Meter moratorium

The CVRD is following in the footsteps of a recent Union of British Columbia Municipalities’ motion calling for a moratorium on BC Hydro’s Smart Meter program due to concerns about health, privacy and costs.

At Wednesday’s board meeting, directors voted to send a letter to BC Hydro as well as Premier Christy Clark, also requesting a moratorium on Smart Meters.

Despite director’s doubts after the province’s announcement it will continue with the program regardless, Giles along with her counterparts felt it important to do their share by also sending a letter stamped by the CVRD.
