Okanagan June 15 2015 – Global News

Last Saturday, Dr. Malcolm Paterson gave a presentation in Oliver. In this Global news video, FortisBC is allowed to present its inaccurate responses without comments – about the level of radiation, the safety factors – e.g. a report saying $$meters reduce fire risk.

This is the report by Len Garis (for which BC Hydro paid $15,000) in which he merely counted the number of electrical fires reported to the Fire Commissioner and said because the number had reduced, $mart meters are not fire hazards. First a horrendous leap in logic, but moreover the number of electrical fires reported has decreased in part, I believe, because fewer fires are being reported, period. Many fires have not been reported to the Commissioner even 1-2 years after the fire. Also, many causes are listed as “undetermined”.  Fire departments’ budgets have been severely reduced over the last few years and (according to an anonymous insider) have been told not to bother with detailed inspections if arson has been ruled out.  

I hope people will comment to Global News.
