2021-10-01 FortisBC Meters for natural gas in B.C.


If you live in B.C., Hans (who is a resident of B.C. [name and email address included with Hans’ permission]) requests that you send him an email message to tell him whether or not you saw in your newspaper a particular FortisBC/BCUC public notice titled “We want to hear from you. It probably would have been printed in black ink, not colour. I can’t add an attachment here so please see what the notice looked like by going to the last page (page 6) at this link:


B.C. residents only, please send an email message with subject line “Fortis notice” to hansk@telus.net and indicate whether or not you saw that notice in your newspaper.


For example: inside road and rail tunnels. I don’t know if there would be other types of locations.

Are we going to have to start being more specific when we mention wires and cables — to specify wires/cables that are not designed to purposely leak wireless radiation?

Below is one paragraph from the first article:

Ensuring Safe, Reliable In-tunnel Wireless Solutions


Radiating Cables

A radiating cable, also called a leaky feeder, is a coaxial cable that acts as a distributed antenna. Manufacturers design radiating cables with periodic gaps (or apertures) in the outer conductor that allow the interior RF signals to radiate — analogous to the signal leaking from the cable. The apertures also serve to receive wireless signals broadcast from other sources, such as two-way radios, allowing the signals to propagate through the radiating cable and, therefore, travel much farther than they would otherwise. The design of the outer apertures can vary greatly among different radiating cables to influence the frequency range most suited to the leaky feeder.

The webinar was part of a free series of monthly legal webinars. The first was in July 2021 and the last in the series will be in December 2021. This is the series:

The New Technologies Legal Forum  Hosted by Attorney Julian Gresser

A series of free webinars for legal professionals, law students and the public

This series of webinars is designed to present and discuss some of the more pressing legal issues currently found at the nexus of technology and law.


All the webinars in the list look interesting to me! You can see the list of all six topics at:


Here are the three remaining webinars:

October 13, 2021
Update on the FDA Petition and Imminent Hazard
10 am – 11:30 am Pacific, 1 pm – 2:30 pm Eastern
A briefing on this critical administrative action that challenges the misleading and false claims regarding RFR safety currently allowed and even encouraged by the FCC and FDA.
James S. Turner, Julian Gresser and Ben Levi will be your hosts.


November 10, 2021
TechSafe Schools Project Update
10 am – 11:30 am Pacific, 1 pm – 2:30 pm Eastern
In light of recent administrative and judicial decisions and actions, as well as the FCC’s own regulations, we have powerful new legal “acupuncture points” to protect our children, teachers, and school staff who are being exposed to RFR from cell towers, smart meters, computers, routers, and other wireless devices. Now is the time to restore BALANCE by effective administrative appearances, litigation, and lobbying at state and local levels and before the U.S. Congress.

Legal Protections of Privacy in the Age of Surveillance Capitalism
10 am – 11:30 am Pacific, 1 pm – 2:30 pm Eastern
Today your freedom of choice as a consumer is rapidly vanishing. Private companies (and the government) know more about you than you do, and routinely buy and sell your most private information for profit in order to manipulate your behavior to purchase their products and services. What are your legal rights and remedies in this new Age of Surveillance Capitalism?

I prefer, provide & request corded connections because we need cleaner indoor & outdoor air everywhere.
