Awareness film night

Focus on smart meters is the theme for Nov. 9 film night

Do you still have unanswered questions about smart meters?

Is having one on the wall of your house really only equivalent to one two minute cell phone chat in a year?

Will these meters actually lower your hydro bill? Thwart electro-thieves?

To what extent can the smart meters monitor our private lives?

What is radiofrequency (RF) radiation?

Can it move through walls? If it can cause cancer, sleep disturbances, dizziness, heart palpitations, nervous system disorders and tinnitus is it really safe? For children? Pregnant women?

Since most of us do not have the technological expertise to answer these questions, Awareness Film Night is presenting a Smart Meter Information Night on November 9.

The evening will feature the hour -ong film Full Signal followed by a question period with Saanich electrician Walter McGinnis.

The film is a basic primer on RF radiation featuring scientists from around the world who have been researching the health effects related to our rapidly increasing array of RF-producing wireless technology.

Walt McGinnis has been an electrician for over 25 years and has been testing for and researching electromagnetic and RF radiation for over 10 years. He is passionate about educating people about this issue, including the unexpurgated realities about smart meters.

Bring your curiosity and your questions,  7 p.m. at the Edward Milne Community School theatre. Admission by donation.
