Smart Meters DO catch fire…. Canada province bans them.

Posted: July 31, 2014 in Uncategorized

smbank SaskPower ordered to remove all 105,000 smart  meters in the province. They announced that they are  removing all the smart meters that were installed in  the province.


The minister responsible for SaskPower Bill Boyd said the utility company will be taking out all 105,000 smart meters around Saskatchewan.

“I think the concerns about safety are paramount here, the concerns are significant enough, anytime families are at risk in Saskatchewan, actions have to be taken and that’s why we’ve directed SaskPower accordingly,” said Minister Boyd.

The removal of the smart meters over the next six to nine months will cost around $15 million, according to SaskPower.

“We view it as similar to a recall situation and the people of Saskatchewan shouldn’t be responsible for the costs of this and we’ll do everything we can to recover those costs,” said Boyd.

Boyd will also be reviewing why the new meters weren’t properly studied or tested before they were installed in homes.

I don’t know whether there was enough testing done. We’ll certainly be conducting, along with SaskPower, an internal review of the procurement procedures around this around the safety concerns people had,” added Boyd.

“We want to determine when these were originally ordered, if there were safety concerns known at that point in time, so we have a lot of questions we’re going to be discussing with SaskPower about how this came to be.”

Earlier this month SaskPower temporarily suspended its installation of smart meters around the province after half a dozen caught fire.

  1. My name is Max.

    I am a young father of 3 with a loving and supportive wife, looking forward to years of enjoyment with my family. Until recently I was a ‘normal’, happy, healthy man moving his family into a new home – a joyful event for most but that is when my problems began. This is my story:

    Since moving into our new house, I began to experience trouble sleeping and breathing in the night, as well as periods of light-headedness and an almost constant fatigue. At first, I thought the nausea, headaches and dizziness were stress-related, then I started having chest pains and knew something was seriously wrong! My wife took my heart-rate and it was a jaw-dropping average of 40 beats per minute – sometimes known as ‘bradycardia’. I went immediately to the ER but upon arrival my heart-rate had returned to normal with only minor irregular beating. One night under ICU monitoring provided no clues as to my illness and I was released.

    Upon my return I took a nap in our bedroom and awoke with the same symptoms that had sent me to the ER earlier. After this I was afraid that I had serious heart problems (‘No’, I was assured); I was growing worried about my declining health and concerned for my family – was it something in the house making me ill? If it wasn’t inside me, it had to come from outside; I began to research everything from bedding material to appliance safety online and it wasn’t long before the words ‘Smart Meter’ started appearing in searches related to my symptoms listing risks and dangers. I was astounded – there is a Smart Meter just 2 metres from my bed!

    That night I slept on the sofa, and you know what? I slept like a log!…and kept it up for a month (sorry, dear!) and began to feel like myself again.

    So, as an experiment to improve my health and my marital relations, I decided to see what could be done to shield myself and family from this Smart meter and the dangerous waves it supposedly emits.

    Further online research led me to find Michael Faraday, inventor of the Faraday Cage whose experiments led to discoveries in electromagnetic wave blocking. Of my own initiative, I measured our Smart Meter and, well, in the jargon of our day, I made a condom to put over the meter for our protection.

    Guess what? It worked and the Smart Meter Condom was born! I’ve worked with engineers to design and perfect the SMC and have reduced our meter’s emissions by 98%*. Now, my aim is to help spare you and yours the health issues and anxiety we suffered since the Smart Meter was installed in our home, by making my Smart Meter Condom (SMC) available to you.

    The website is packed with information about the Condom, Smart Meter related health risks, demonstration videos, and links to helpful websites to assist you in your own research.

    However, if you think your smart meter is making you sick, I urge you to see a doctor, try to sleep far from the device, and consider Smart Meter Condom protection.
