All the political parties are pushing nation wide towards a third world states as they implement the UN/Globalist/Corporate agendas upon the people,this must stop now. Energy poverty means pre-paid hydro, the Federal Agency Measurement Canada is preparing to finalize approval for pre-paid hydro meters. This was only a matter of time since the province installed the so called smart meters, in peoples homes.
To picture a pre-paid electricity meter, is just like a parking meter that you put money into to be able to park your car. These are popular in third world countries particularly where poor people have no access to credit,they enable the power utilities to deny access to a basic need, without actually having to pull the plug if customers have trouble with bills. It forces the poor house holds to self disconnect.
The federal government has set Janurary 1, 2017 for the implementation date for it’s new policy. Energy poverty is prevalent among certain types of house holds, including those with single residents, seniors,children with young adults,renters, and those with a female primary bill payer. Low income families and individuals are forced to choose between heating their homes, buying groceries or paying the rent as the result of increasing utility prices. For many it is a literally a choice between eating or heating.
