Smart meters are the gift that keeps on giving to Ontario’s opposition parties, providing them with a club with which to beat the Liberal government over the head, year after year.
Unfortunately, they’re also the gift that keeps on taking money out of the pockets of electricity consumers, with no end in sight.
In the latest snafu, 36,000 rural smart meters aren’t transmitting their data to Hydro One, because local Wi-Fi signals aren’t strong enough. If smart meters can’t transmit data, they become dumb meters.
This is the kleptocracy elected by Wynne’s political masters, the public service unions and her crony capitalist supporters.
Ontario is 3rd world state in waiting, leave the province if you can, the worst is yet to come.
And there is nothing we can do about it.
