The petition of the undersigned, citizens of the Province of British Columbia, states that:
Whereas significant and serious health, privacy, cost and other concerns have been identified regarding the installation of wireless Smart Meters in British Columbia, and
Whereas B.C. Hydro is proceeding with its program to install wireless smart meters although it recognizes there is active discussion and ongoing research into the possible health and environmental effects related to radiofrequency signals, and it is aware that, on May 31, 2011, the World Health Organization classified radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as a Class 2B, a possible human carcinogen, and called for further investigation:
Therefore, the citizens of British Columbia request that a moratorium be placed on the wireless smart meter program until the major issues and problems identified regarding wireless smart meters are independently assessed with full public consultation, and until acceptable alternatives can be made available to the consumer.
