Hydro-Quebec still attempting to charge opt-out fees despite government resolutions and lack of safety evidence
(Also available HERE)
For over 3 years now, Hydro-Québec has started deploying a network of so-called 'smart' meters, each equipped with a powerful microwave transmitter and connected to an extensive wireless communication network that will eventually cover every single populated area of Quebec. Many people have heard about the growing opposition to the deployment of this new method of remote reading of our electricity usage, but few people know the true extent of the anticipated health consequences that thousands of people already endure. This site was designed to objectively present the facts and thus enable everyone to make up their own mind on this issue. This is not about sowing unnecessary fears, but about enabling greater awareness of what is at stake, so that careful and informed choices, which have obviously not been made by Hydro-Québec, are put forward and seriously considered by policy-makers. You are cordially invited to spend some time reviewing the facts that have been assembled for you here and the actions suggested so you may protect your health and that of your family, preserve your privacy and ensure that your ability to pay is respected. Please note that if your electromechanical meter has already been replaced, or if you have always had an electronic meter with a digital display, you will find some useful suggestions HERE (in French only, but using the Google translation module at the top left will help you get a good idea of what is explained).
