FortisBC says no to RDOS directors

Response from Fortis:

We have made presentations in the past to the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen about our Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) project.

Before installing advanced meters, FortisBC required approval from the British Columbia Utilities Commission (BCUC), our independent utility regulator. After a thorough public hearing, the BCUC concluded that advanced meters pose no health concern and that the AMI project is in the public interest.

BC wants to see action on West Bench water

The following article appeared in the on-line "Oliver Daily News" . Jack Bennest, who did the story and who has spent much time at the RDOS board table, asked me for some comments.  He included these at the end of the story. The story stems from a letter to the RDOS from the Province asking whether the RDOS would be willing to takeover the West Bench water system if the WBID decided to dissolve.
