Reader suspects BC Hydro smart meter responsible for electrical damage

Dear Editor,

I recently had a smart meter installed. Since the installation, my four satellite receivers have blown, my television, and this morning my computer printer and a scanner also blew out.

I think this may be a very good story to follow, and to ask other BC Hydro users in the Bella Coola/Hagensborg area about their experiences.

I have asked BC Hydro to remove my meter and compensate for my lost electronics. I’ve had no reply despite their email telling me there would be a response within two business days.

I am very interested to learn if other Valley residents believe their household has been affected by the smart meters, and if any have received a reply from BC Hydro on the matter.

Sincerely,Barney KernBella Coola
