City of Penticton’s Moderated Public Forum on Smart Meter Safety in 2012 Included Professor Curtis Bennett

I was asked by Penticton citizens to speak at their city council agenda to substantiate the RF EMF danger because of my electrical, building engineering and thermal radiation qualifications.

I am also Adjunct Faculty for continuing medical education where doctors, nurses, etc get education credits they require for ongoing medical licensing. The dangers of the RF EMFs as applied has now been lectured for CME credits and applicable in North America.

From there, Kevin Proteau as citizen’s spokesperson asked for a public forum to educate the public.

The City of Penticton, British Columbia agreed to hold a moderated public forum on wireless meter safety. City of Penticton management sat at one table with Itron representing the meter program being safe. Concerned citizen’s representatives sat at the other table with the moderator in between. The City of Penticton had a live audio feed and did video the event. Unfortunately the video quality wasn’t very good and thanks to citizen’s taping the forum, unedited versions of the forum are here for you to see. Special thanks to Dan Bianco for his hours of work putting the information together.

I didn’t attend the meeting just to present information on the dangers of the frequencies. I was there in my professional capacity to see the science as represented by Itron, City of Penticton, citizen’s concerns and how they were represented. Watch all 4 parts of the videos, they represent the science, the sales and public questions after both sides presented.

PART 1: City of Penticton & Itron on Meter Safety

PART 2: Brian Thiesen from Kamloops on the human body and the financial interests pushing Smart Meters

Part 3, Curtis Bennett is a government certified provincial and national electrical professional, a building engineering professional, thermal radiation consultant and lectures the dangers of RF EMFs in medical education for CE Credits required for ongoing medical licensing. Expert witness was provided by Curtis at the request of Canadian Parliament’s Standing Committee on Health where the mechanism linking frequencies to adverse health effects was reported.

Part 4, Questions & Answers From Public

Our expectations at the open forum were for the city and Itron to technically qualify the safety of wireless smart meters. That didn’t happen.
