The brown of the $100 just does not go with my colour scheme. Makes me think of wood panelled walls and shag rugs from the 1960's. Truly scary.

To err is human - but to really screw up you need a computer.

Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done and why. Then do it.

You would be in error both in thought and in execution.

Election Ploy. Nothing more. Government doesn't want to angry people with the upcoming Election, thus why they will back off until after the Election. This should be an Election Issue. There are Health, Privacy Issues associated with Smart Meters, but also each B.C. Resident should have the choice of whether they want a Smart Meter or not. Not having a dictatorship telling everyone that you must have one or else. Government has botched this worst then the HST. Regardless of who wins the election, I fear Smart Meters will still be forced on those who don't have one and don't want one.


That is what happened here in melbourne.

Ever get the feeling you are being short changed :sadno:

Smart-meter foes fume at Coleman; some say they've been duped


They have been. By those that oppose smart meters.

Unless of course they oppose it because they object to a time of day billing. But you never really hear about that and even if it was done as much as they say it's not in the plans it would still be a good idea.

So even the worst case scenario helps the environment AND makes the province money. And don't worry BC, if the government flip flops and puts out a good idea you can always call up your buddy Vanderzalm to flim flam the populace into voting it down.

And we wonder why the rest of the country makes fun of us as being a bunch of high as a kite pie in the sky burnouts!

We saw this play out in the HST referendum.
