iLOVE the real activists.. research, talks, info sharing... that's smartest.

Thank you to my friend in Ontario Ron for this one... A must see in this techno electro fuzz day and age ...   the talk from Dr. Magda Havas:  The Truth About Wired & Wireless Technologies on Vimeo .. a great community of sharing .. and her more recent talk here: ... wireless / WiFi in schools.

These are two great blog talk radio shows on the "Smart Meters" issue, among other thing, with activists:

S M A R T meters-One More Intrusion on Our Privacy Health [aired Oct 20, 2011]

Stop the Smart Meters from Nanaimo BC [aired Oct 28, 2011]

So talk to everyone you come across since it seems a sense of urgency on this issue here... let others know... but for your consideration:  I'm already concerned about the schools hurriedly implementing classroom SMARTboards, the Compact Fluorescent lightbulbs, in homes and in schools..  especially concerning is their proximity to our young children.. I really don't feel its a good idea .. and will research it further ..   .. CBC reports on these tech. ...

The Dark Side of "Smart Meters" .. can go to Freedom fighter dot com Has a safe meter replacement kit. $49.95.. It includes a new power meter. All neccessary hardware. Step by step instructions on your legal rights. And how to legally change your meter.. however you can --


On these windfarms being pushed:  This week's terrible storms in Scotland also wrecked havoc ... .. including destruction at wind farm shown below [Ardrossan Wind Farm] ..

... just not a fan of these wind farms .. since I heard (in 2007) about the health issues they have been causing in people in their proximity... so 'the powers that be' who govern us seem to think they are 'green' technology.. but I'm not even sure what that means - I thought moving forward was the implementation and many different arrays of micro-grid technology, realistically that would take control away from the big power companies though... hence the problem ... .... there is a new big windfarm now going in Northern Nova Scotia (Amherst) .. article states:  "... The province has set a target to have 25 per cent of its electricity come from clean, renewable sources by the year 2015. That target increases to 40 per cent by 2020.

John Kellegrew, a councillor for the Municipality of the County of... Cumberland, said the county will also be a big winner because it taxes wind farms for every megawatt produced.

"It's $5,500 a megawatt and 30 megawatts, so you're looking at $165,000, in that neighbourhood," he told reporters.

"It's a real, real boost to Cumberland County."  ... I foresee health issues for the people living in their proximity.. sadly...

"fancy parking job - when you're cool... you wanna others to know just how cool and SMART you are"

{SMART car =  driving in a pop can .. I am just not sure about that folks.... how smart is that really?}

Recently,  Red Ice Creations Radio did a program on this issue (SMART grid) in the USA - worth a listen and consideration as well:  .. the fellow Joshua Hart, a grassroots activist, can also be followed on Twitter: .. his group's website:

Terry and Frankie's Canadian Awareness Network video on SMART technology is also shown here:   ...

So as Canadians and especially New Brunswickers - we do need to pay attention closely to this 'SMART' technology push in general... it may not be the godsend some would have us humans imagine... let's talk about it.... let's consider the health of everyone...

Dear (Energy Provider) and all agents, officers, employees, contractors and interested parties,

If you intend to install a "Smart Meter" or any activity monitoring device at the above address, you and all other parties are hereby deny consent for installation and use of all such devices on the above property. Installation and use of any activity monitoring device is hereby refused and prohibited. Informed consent is legally required for installation of any surveillance device and any device that will collect and transmit private and personal data to undisclosed and unauthorized parties for undisclosed and unauthorized purposes. Authorization for sharing of personal and private information may only be given by the originator and subject of that information. That authorization is hereby denied and refused with regard to the above property and all its occupants. "Smart Meters" violate the law and cause endangerment to residents by the following factors:

1. They individually identify electrical devices inside the home and record when they are operated causing invasion of privacy.

2. They monitor household activity and occupancy in violation of rights and domestic security.

3. They transmit wireless signals which may be intercepted by unauthorized and unknown parties. Those signals can be used to monitor behavior and occupancy and they can be used by criminals to aid criminal activity against the occupants.

4. Data about occupant's daily habits and activities are collected, recorded and stored in permanent databases which are accessed by parties not authorized or invited to know and share that private data by those who's activities were recorded.

5. Those with access to the smart meter databases can review a permanent history of household activities complete with calendar and time-of-day metrics to gain a highly invasive and detailed view of the lives of the occupants.

6. Those databases may be shared with, or fall into the hands of criminals, blackmailers, corrupt law enforcement, private hackers of wireless transmissions, power company employees, and other unidentified parties who may act against the interests of the occupants under metered surveillance.

7. "Smart Meters" are, by definition, surveillance devices which violate Federal and State wiretapping laws by recording and storing databases of private and personal activities and behaviors without the consent or knowledge of those people who are monitored.

8. It is possible for example, with analysis of certain "Smart Meter" data, for unauthorized and distant parties to determine medical conditions, sexual activities, physical locations of persons within the home, vacancy patterns and personal information and habits of the occupants.

9. Your company has not adequately disclosed the particular recording and transmission capabilities of the smart meter, or the extent of the data that will be recorded, stored and shared, or the purposes to which the data will and will not be put.

10. Electromagnetic and Radio Frequency energy contamination from smart meters exceeds allowable safe and healthful limits for domestic environments as determined by the EPA and other scientific programs.

I forbid, refuse and deny consent of any installation and use of any monitoring, eavesdropping, and surveillance devices on my property, my place of residence and my place of occupancy. That applies to and includes "Smart Meters" and activity monitoring devices of any and all kinds. Any attempt to install any such device directed at me, other occupants, my property or residence will constitute trespass, stalking, wiretapping and unlawful surveillance and endangerment of health and safety, all prohibited and punishable by law through criminal and civil complaints. All persons, government agencies and private organizations responsible for installing or operating monitoring devices directed at or recording my activities, which I have not specifically authorized in writing, will be fully liable for any violations, intrusions, harm or negative consequences caused or made possible by those devices whether those negative consequences are justified by "law" or not..

This is legal notice. After this delivery the liabilities listed above may not be denied or avoided by parties named and implied in this notice. Civil Servant immunities and protections do not apply to the installation of smart meters due to the criminal violations they represent.

Notice to principal is notice to agent and notice to agent is notice to principal. All rights reserved.
