Liberals urged to listen to UBCM

While there are still letters regarding the outcome of the HST, not much is in the media regarding smart meters. It should be noted that the HST was defeated by 54.73 per cent majority.

While there are still letters regarding the outcome of the HST, not much is in the media regarding smart meters. It should be noted that the HST was defeated by 54.73 per cent majority.

The resolution from the UBCM requesting a moratorium on the installation of smart meters has also passed by 55 per cent majority vote. It should be noted the UBCM vote was held with all of eligible voters being there and represents an accurate reflection of the legitimacy of the concerns having been brought forward for consideration and implementation by the Liberal government. Let us see if they have the arrogance of ignoring the collective wisdom of the majority.

There can be no doubt the information supplied to the UBCM delegates was intensely biased in favour of BC Hydro as they were the only presenters allowed at the UBCM.

Considering the legislature will be in session next week it will be interesting to see the results of the unavoidable debates that will take place at the legislature.
