In the past and a few times recently, people have asked “Why do you have DO NOT COMBINE DOCUMENTS FROM OTHER SITES so prominently displayed in your link to prevent smart meter installs/fees in BC”
This is a great question for sure and we will look into how we can best explain that a bit in this post.
There is no doubt just about all of you are aware there are multiple approaches out there. Some of you have been paying attention to just about everyone and everything smart meters for 3+ years now. Some of you are new just the same and in the scramble to find ‘answers’ and ‘help’ you may have come across so much information you don’t know what it is going on, you just know you don’t want a smart meter!
We have seen that people have said things like “We feel there is no problem in combining other sites documents with ours” Fair enough, that may be the case for them. However, this does not make it actually true and for you, is the worst step you could take.
Sure, it may be possible that ‘other documents’ may not be affected by the documents on this site. However, when we look closer, do we know what effect ‘their’ documents could have on YOU and the documents you have done? That side of the coin never seems to get covered.
Some groups have generated over a dozen documents, letters, notices etc. in their attempts to stop installations on homes. We have seen just as many of their documents get ripped down and smart metered. This is not the case with the documents at this site.
Using our documents in combination with documents that have been ignored, ripped down and metered does not sound like a good idea does it?
Besides that a primary reason we ask not to use other documents is very simply. We have no idea what other people can or will do and cannot speak for them and their ‘efforts’ at all times.
However, what we do know is it is pretty simple to look at the law as it stands. From there it becomes easier to draw conclusions even if not so much on ‘what to do’ but on ‘what NOT to do’ so to speak.
One thing we have seen time and again is a very beneficial word that helps BC Hydro and the Government.
That word is REGISTER. The “R” word noted in the title of this post.
This seems the opportune time to look at a legal definition of the word:
Instantly, what should jump out at you is “TO BE IN CORRECT ALIGNMENT WITH ONE ANOTHER” What does this mean? This means YOU become in alignment with who you are REGISTERING with, the Registrant. In this case, in Alignment with… BC Hydro. Not good.
Now, let’s look at something people have been asked to do time and again on multiple documents for over 2 years now:
This is a recent document we have seen out there. At the bottom of this document there is a spot for your signature. This affirms your stating that your BC Hydro ACCOUNT is REGISTERED or “IN ALIGNMENT WITH” BC Hydro.
Do you really want: “TO BE IN CORRECT ALIGNMENT WITH” BC HYDRO?
Most likely not. Actually, of course not but you probably had no idea what you just did, since no one promoting these types of documents explains just what they are telling you to do.
Now, when you REGISTER someone or something becomes the REGISTRANT which means this:
Hold on a second…
Does that say “FOR THE PURPOSE OF SECURING A RIGHT OR PRIVILEGE BY LAW“? Doesn’t BC Hydro believe they have the “RIGHT OR PRIVILEGE” to install a smart meter BY LAW already? Why give them more ammo? Doesn’t this seem a bit counter productive?
We have also seen to our amazement, people asking you to REGISTER (become in alignment with) for programs that… do not even exist… at all… and never did… at any time…ever.
Yes, right now, this is still happening and it began months ago when this document started to be promoted as a ‘good’ thing to do:
There is that awful word “REGISTRATION” again, only this is not for REGISTERING your account and allowing BC Hydro “RIGHTS AND PRIVILEGES” to it, but, to a program, as stated, that does not even exist.
This is like registering your car to something that does not even exist. Or registering your car with Tourism BC, it makes no sense at all.
Now, speaking of cars let’s look at a real life example of this in action. YOU pay for your car in full, cash or bank draft. YOU get caught speeding excessively. YOU are the sole owner of the vehicle. BUT the Government can take it away from you. What is the mechanism that allows this to happen? REGISTRATION, this SECURES RIGHTS AND PRIVILEGES to the REGISTRANT BY LAW (The Crown).
Or, how about this one. You have paid your mortgage completely off and are the proud owner of your house and property. Not satisfied with it’s size and with some money to burn since you are not paying the bank anymore, you want to make an addition on the home. Just one problem, you cannot do that without permission. What is the mechanism at play here? Again, your land is REGISTERED in the land title office.
Starting to make sense?
It is clear that the real life examples match up with the legal definitions. We can also see that this word creates DISTINCT ADVANTAGES for the Government, Crown, BC Hydro etc. Is it ever good to give your opponent and advantage? No, of course not.
So let’s go back to this “OPT OUT” registration that still does not even exist. Again, there is NO OPT OUT to REGISTER for in BC and there never was. With the creation of the Meter Choices Program, there probably never will be… ever.
What you should ask yourself if you did these the documents displayed here is some very important questions. Given the immense advantage that being a REGISTRANT has, don’t you think BC Hydro would take you up on your offer to REGISTER your account? Of course they would. If they are jumping fences and creating fraud after fraud like the Clean Energy Act etc. this is a foregone conclusion. You must be asking yourself “Why was I told to REGISTER for a program that does not even exist?” Good question, no one has ever been told the answer to that, if you get one, please let us know because we are totally stumped!
THIS NOTICE TO BC HYDRO IS MY REGISTRATION FOR A NO FEE SMART METER opt out.
Wow. I cannot stress enough, there is NO “OPT OUT” PROGRAM IN BC… have you heard of one? No, you haven’t. So what is it you are even REGISTERING for? More importantly WHY would you give RIGHTS AND PRIVILEGES to BC HYDRO by REGISTERING your account with them… with your signature? It simply makes no sense at all. The closest thing to an “OPT OUT” is the Meter Choices Program… not good.
So, this is part of why we ask that you DO NOT COMBINE OUR DOCUMENTS with other documents. Sure, by taking someone’s advice to Become In Alignment With BC Hydro and allow BC Hydro “RIGHTS AND PRIVILEGES” to your account will not affect previous documents used to… allow Rights and Privileges to your account.
However, our documents are for taking those RIGHTS back into YOUR HANDS and that is part of why it is called a “CLAIM OF RIGHT” because, you are asserting your rights to/on that account/meter. Simple as that.
BUT, if you assert those rights, then, turn around and give those rights away by doing documents like the above mentioned… what is the point? Now, you are in “ALIGNMENT” with BC Hydro, then, you are going to ask them for your rights? You just nullified them!
This is like telling the schoolyard bully to take your candy and then ask for it back, it makes no sense then and it makes no sense now.
What is interesting is 100′s of people who gave up their rights long ago are in a group of people that are in a REGISTERED lawsuit. Of course you can make up your mind if it makes sense to join a group of people who have declared BC Hydro has “RIGHTS AND PRIVILEGES” on their account, then, ask for them back. Why not just… KEEP YOUR RIGHTS THE WHOLE TIME? Doesn’t this seem like the more logical and common sense approach?
Now, what is a very intriguing twist to this whole situation is the fact that BC Hydro may have simply obliged the DEMAND (yes this document DEMANDS BC Hydro Register the Account) of the people who signed this document and created a… NO FEE SMART METER! In fact, they may have indeed created that program afterall, and that could very well be the Meter Choices Program. REMEMBER they have, by your FULL consent (if you signed that document) gained RIGHTS AND PRIVILEGES BY LAW to your account.
Afterall, what is the only “NO FEE” option in the Meter Choices Program?
You guessed it… A SMART METER… notice how those documents say right on them REGISTER me for a “NO FEE SMART METER” opt out? Think on that for a second.
This is where this again comes into play:
“TO ENROLL, TO ENTER PRECISELY IN A LIST OR THE LIKE”
Now, this is DIRECTLY from the BC Hydro Website regarding the “Meter Choices Program”
“Enrolment deadline Please confirm your choice of meter by December 1, 2013.
To confirm your choice, the account holder named on the enclosed enrolment form needs to complete, sign and return the form to BC Hydro by the deadline.”
Notice anything here? “I AM THE REGISTERED ACCOUNT HOLDER” is on the document that people were told to sign. Then, we see BC Hydro using the exact same term. Does that not raise any red flags to you?
Note, of course on our documents we do not use those terms at all for the reasons that are being pointed out now.
You can see REGISTER by legal definition means to “ENTER PRECISELY ON A LIST” then BC Hydro wants you to ENROLL and… ENTER PRECISELY ON A LIST. Very, Very Interesting don’t you think? The similarities to what BC Hydro says and these people recommending these documents are getting people to do are very hard to outright ignore since there is so much in common every step of the way.
We have pointed out the piles of examples of Fatal Defects, Omissions of Facts and outright lies on our documents. We can see clearly over the past 3+ years that BC Hydro ABSOLUTELY behaves in this manner of using legal trickery. What makes anyone think that they would not take full advantage of those who would willingly (by advisement) to give up rights and privileges on their account, and ENROLL into a program pre-emptively, that was created at a later date by REGISTERING for a NO FEE SMART METER opt out (that does not even exist)?
Now if you “BECOME IN CORRECT ALIGNMENT” with BC Hydro, you would most certainly fall under their laws/statutes. If such is the case, there is one part of one Act in particular that Everyone should read.
That is the British Columbia Hydro Power and Authority Act (PAA) specifically Section 12:
It goes on, but what I wanted to point out is there are those ugly words again RIGHTS AND PRIVILEGES. Now, look what they say in regards to:
‘ANY OTHER POWER PRESCRIBED.’ I cannot stress enough, does it in any way make any sense to follow the advice of someone who would, for some strange reason, have you allow BC Hydro to SECURE RIGHTS AND PRIVILEGES on your ACCOUNT which gives BC Hydro “ANY OTHER POWER PRESCRIBED“? You can figure that out on your own.
There is another interesting word in (a) above “AMALGAMATION”
Now, if you have been paying attention you will have noted that REGISTRATION already means that you are: “IN CORRECT ALIGNMENT WITH ONE ANOTHER” (you and BC Hydro) and, if you signed documents that got you to REGISTER your account with BC Hydro, just think of the ramifications of being in “ALIGNMENT” with an act (PAA) that can take advantage of “MERGING TWO THINGS TOGETHER TO FORM ONE” Recall how in the past we have discussed that YOU are merely a CORPORATION and guess who else is a (Crown) CORPORATION? BC Hydro.
Here is another ‘real life’ example to show validity of what we are saying. This is a Traffic Violation Ticket for BC. Notice how the Government themselves recognizes you as a CORPORATION. (no, they are not referring to someone getting ticketed for driving a corporate vehicle, this is where the PERSONS’ last and then first names are put) We have heard people make assertions that this ‘theory’ is not true, well, here you have it laid out for you again:
Here is a link to the BC Hydro Power Authority Act itself:
Again, this is section 12, which includes such gems for BC Hydro as:
They really like that word REGISTER don’t they? Of course now, we know why BC Hydro likes that word so much, and would be delighted if you would decide for some strange reason to REGISTER your account WITH BC Hydro.
You can recall how we asked that you DO NOT…. REGISTER with the BCUC to be an ‘INTERVENOR” etc. Just look at the words… is it really saying “BECOME ONE WITH THE BCUC”? You can sort that out on your own also. We saw countless times where people were being told “We all need to REGISTER WITH THE BCUC as intervenors.” day after day in endless emails telling them this is a ‘good’ thing.
The reason we were told that this was a ‘good’ thing to do is because “magically” after 3 years the BCUC ”Really wants to know what you think, all you have to do is REGISTER WITH THE BCUC” This simply does not add up at all.
Are we supposed to believe the BCUC was in a bubble for the last X years and just now knows there is a problem with the smart meter rollout in BC?
Why do you think they are requesting you “REGISTER WITH THEM”? Why do you think the BCUC is publicly soliciting people to go to hearings regarding the smart meters? Why if the BCUC is soliciting people to “BECOME ONE WITH THEM” would anyone advise people to take them up on the very offer that ONLY BENEFITS THE BCUC?
Doesn’t that seem odd to you?
Is it possible that by doing this and writing letters to the BCUC that these very actions made the Lieutenant Governor in Council create Order in Council #391 solidifying the Meter Choices Program? Don’t you find it somewhat odd that people were being told to ‘write to and REGISTER with the BCUC” then magically the Order in Council came right after? Is there a mechanism at play here? More importantly, why would anyone tell people to do this at all? It makes no sense except for the sense it makes for BC Hydro. Each successive move more beneficial to the ‘Authority’ than the last.
The BCUC does not care and they never did from the understanding you have now, you can see that these people who could care less, most likely are just pretending to care… to get you into a trap, that’s all.
The good news is, if you have, for some reason, followed the advice of people telling you to allow BC Hydro to “SECURE RIGHTS AND PRIVILEGES” on your BC Hydro account on top of telling you to REGISTER with the BCUC and a host of other questionable sets of advice, you can still reclaim the rights that the advice gave to BC Hydro.
You can do this by completing the documents linked here:
If you have joined a lawsuit with a large group of people who have allowed BC Hydro to “SECURE RIGHTS AND PRIVILEGES” on their BC Hydro account, you may want to speak to the people running that lawsuit in regards to how, if you decide you want your rights instead of giving them away, to get out of that lawsuit.
We have been told that, people are being denied exit from the lawsuit at this time. We are not sure why this is the case and do also believe that people should be free to exit this lawsuit.
Morally and Ethically this is the right thing to do, we are in what’s left of a free country of choice and being denied the choice to exit seems very strange to us also.
At the very least, people should be told why they cannot be allowed to exit and become part of any court order handed out by the Crown.
Paramount to that, they should be told this BEFORE they REGISTER all the implications of ‘joining’ in with those who wish to allow BC Hydro “RIGHTS AND PRIVILEGES” on their meter/account.
If you joined this lawsuit, were you ever told that you would not be able to exit? Were you told at what point you could no longer exit and be subjected to the ruling by the court, which could include even further erosion of RIGHTS AND PRIVILEGES on your account?
Which also begs the question, the most low risk thing you could do is just… stay out… and if the lawsuit fails… you are not dragged into any judgment. If the lawsuit wins, great, you can hop on the bandwagon AFTER.
Remember, promoters of the lawsuit say this is a “NO RISK” lawsuit. Perhaps you have seen through this notion as now you have become aware of how dangerous and risky it would be to give the Crown these advantages and walk into a court, with a lead plaintiff who ALREADY HAS A SMART METER. The last point may not have been told to you either as we do not see where people are being told they have joined a suit with someone with a meter. If you do not yet have a smart meter, does it make a whole lot of sense (on top of what we have pointed out previously) to join a lawsuit with someone who does? No, it doesn’t at all.
Does it make sense to give away your rights and privileges to your account, become one with the BCUC and then, walk into the very court, which is part of the Crown, who in turn creates the laws to install and enforce installation of the Smart Meters? That is a question only you can answer. Remember the judge and BC Hydro BOTH work for the Crown.
We do hope to continue to explain things like the “PERSON” shown in the PAA above, but in the meantime, you can read what we had posted at the site a long time ago and are now reposting again:
I also hope that you think about what people say when they make statements like “even if you have done other documents from other sites it won’t affect the lawsuit” As said, it may not affect the suit at all, but it may affect the rights you have gained by doing the Claim of Right, by nullifying them because you gave those rights and privileges back to BC Hydro at a later date by doing other documents or REGISTERING for lawsuits etc.
