Ontario smart meters safe? No firm answers yet, province says
However, smart meters have been linked to 23 incidents reported to Ontario s Fire Marshal from 2011 to 2013.
*I can tell you 10 of those were smart meter failures attributed to internal faults, and 13 were small fires attributed to high-resistance heating,* said spokeswoman Carol Gravelle.

Ontario Fire Meters
*The Ontario Energy Board said Thursday that nearly HALF of the 77 electricity distributors in Ontario have installed smart meters made by North Carolina-based SENSUS, a company whose equipment has been linked to nine fires in Saskatchewan.*

Hydro-Quebec customers complain of skyrocketing bills thanks to smart meters
*They complain about doubling and even tripling the usual amount of the bill,* said Marie-Michelle Poisson of Refusons les compteurs, part of a growing movement refusing to make the switch to smart meters.
Unlike the old meters, she says the digital meters are unreadable so customers can t monitor their energy consumption and compare it to their bills.
Smart Meter Emissions and the Antenna Effect
An RF engineer s technical report confirms that smart meters cause an antenna effect when connected to electrical distribution systems, resulting in RF exposures that are significantly higher than those reported in isolated laboratory testing.
BC Smart Meter Fires
I have written a report to refute Bill Bennett s and BC Hydro s statements claiming no smart meter fires have occurred in BC. The evidence I have in the report is just the tip of the iceberg, with many *suspicious* fires yet to research. Alarmingly many fires, although attributed to *electrical/mechanical* are listed as having causes *undetermined.*
Please share this information. A technical report will follow soonit will apply to smart meters across Canada and perhaps the US.
