There is a serious problem with the smart meters, reading as much as 4 times the actual consumption.
We need to get everyone together. I have already contacted 2 reporters, and started this blog http://h1ripoff.blogspot.com/
It may come down to a class action suit against Hydro One. This is THEFT!
get the reporters to look up THE GEORGIA GUIDESTONES
how about canadians that LOOK at www.henrymakow.com and read the CONSPIRACY so monsterous to believe HOW ABOUT CANAdians wake up to the PATRIOT act ONE AND TWO in the usa and now'

of course the smart meters are a joke www.infowars.com was warning about them five years ago already
One has to wonder about Queen's Park and their abilities related to reasonable thought processes.
Premier McGuinty is bound and determined to channel and manipulate social behavior modifications on many fronts including energy consumption.
Smart Meters are being installed under the guise of enabling consumers' conservation efforts and taking firmer control of expenses. While many consumers are shifting consumption to off-peak hours, few are seeing any real savings.
Mr. McGuinty has provided Smart Meters to give the public the opportunity to save on energy use through less consumption and taking advantage of lower rates on off-peak hours. Isn't that the crux of his line? We are also being told that 80% of our hydro infrastructure needs to be replaced in the not to distant future.
If everyone lowers their hydro bills, the power companies will see a shortfall in their revenue. Who will pay for the shortfalls?
Why... that would be us!... one way or another.
So the energy companies spent months preparing for requests for rate increases. Hydro One wanted a 22% increase over 2 years.
No! No! No!. The public is already feeling the financial burdens from the new Smart Meter readings. The Green Tax has yet to be billed out and the HST will be an added sting.
No, the government wants first dibs on revenue so they nicely (sic) told the energy companies not to bother to ask for rate increases.
Woe is us!
Isn't there anyone thinking the process through..... at least until past Oct. 2001?
Ontario utilities told not to bother with requests for rate increases
Andrew Campbell said:Wow! Did I read that right in the article?!?!...
"Beckett estimates that most homeowners will see an increase of 25 per cent on a typical electrical bill in coming months. That jump will come from the Ontario Energy Board rate increase, other charges related to the Green Energy Act and the introduction of the HST on July 1." That doesn't even include the on-peak cost - which will be very costly for us who tend to milk cows through those peak hours.

More of what is to happen but isn't.
according to the beautiful booklet that the Ont. Gov't sent out over a year ago, the rates are going up 57% plus the HST then the other things like servicing the debt retirement is on top of that,( it is going up25%) . study was done by one of the universities (Toronto, I think) their study says the hydro will go up more the 100% in the next 5 years.
Well, not surprising really! Someone is going to have to pay for those solar trackers in your neighbour's yard and the wind farms that Enbridge is developing!
We will be paying for these "green" projects twice - once through our electricity bills as noted above and also with our taxes dollars siphoned off to pay back the subsidies paid to the developers and owners of wind and solar companies.
