Letter: Support our city council

Looks like the new council has taken much better approach to that issue, Anatol Plasun writes.

A few people who have written letters to the Gazette are expressing some kind of  impatience because of endless discussions regarding water meters.

They would be happy these discussions stopped finally and they will go ahead with their happy life. The problem is that it is not going to happen. It is only the beginning of our struggle.

At the moment these meters have been installed and turned on, they started to do a harm to us, our animals and the environment, and it is not going to get better, but worse.

It should be the opposite: there should be more discussions, protests, petitions up to the point when these health-damaging devices will be removed or the radio taken out and they will be wired. Only then we can stop talking about them.

The international microwave radiation health safety level is 0.1 microwatt of constant exposure. In Grand Forks the meter readings are showing 300-plus microwatts in some areas, which is 3,000 times over the safety limit. In Vancouver in most areas the meter readings are showing 30,000, 50,000 and in some over 200,000 times over the limit, day and night, all the time.

Do you think it is a joke? It all ads up, smart meters, Wi-Fi, cell phones, cell antennas, communication antennas and so on. Where is this country going to? How do you think? To a happy, worry-free future?

As for these who are worried about the water conservation, why are you not worried about a real danger to the environment and water—GMO, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, chemical fertilizers, chem trails and so on?

If you are worried about water go to the offices which allow the use of these deadly chemicals and do some protest, go to those who manufacture them and protest there, go to these who use these chemicals and protest there, maybe it will help.

The previous council have had some kind of agenda—installing radiating water meters, as many as possible, and they were doing that to the last day of their office time.

Looks like the new council has taken much better approach to that issue, and we should support them in that, not call them to step down.
