Great way to run a business

Who needs estimates or a business plan if our government will bail us out

On Dec. 27, 2012 our government extended the deadline for installations of smart meters.

Not a week or a month but a year, to ensure BC Hydro has installed all the new meters. Looks like a great way to run a business.

Who needs estimates or a business plan if our government will bail us out. Try doing that in private business. And as Hydro spokespersons tell us about how shortages in qualified labour, equipment and specialized meters, plus customer concerns, prevented BC Hydro from fully installing all smart meters in 2012, we’re told there’s a lot of misinformation out there. Sounds like they did their homework. Were Corix installers qualified and if they didn’t do their job, were they financially penalized? And didn’t they have all their equipment suppliers giving timelines for delivery? What does Gary Murphy get paid for? And I speak for my wife and I and, I’m sure, the majority of the customers who haven’t had installations that, yes, we have concerns and we refused , not delayed ,the installations.
