Don't let Hydro spin the fact that they don't cut sevice in the winter.

     In early 2013 Hydro was making attempts to scare me into taking their bullshit meter. I told them to piss off. I posted notices on my property telling them that I don't want their idiot meter.

     In early 2014 they sent me a bill that was 9 times the amount I usually paid for two months. I called them and told them that it wouldn't be paid. The person I was speaking to tried to spin the situation. I told her I don't want to hear her bullshit story and that she was to correct the bill by reducing it to what I normally paid.
She agreed and send she would submit it for review. The new (and improved ) version arrived and it was half the original bulshit bill.

When I looked at the top left corner I saw that it was estimated. So I went out and checked the meter. The meter read more than 2700 Kwh lower than their estimates.

Again I phoned the spin doctors. This time I was adamant that I would not be paying this bill until the hours caught up to what my meter was reading and they were to get back to me with a proper bill.They never got back to me. I also informed them that I had joined the class action group at which time the woman said "fine" and hung up.

After talking to the class action people and on reflection it was decided that I make payments. So I began paying the normal bill and when they jacked the rates up 25% I added that.And continued to pay.

Now comes the good part. Even though I was paying what I beleived to be the equivelent of what my bill should be. And having no further action on their part to correct this attempted theft, THEY CUT OFF MY SERVICE. Not only did they cut it off but in the same week that I saw them try to spin how they don't  do it in winter months, They cut it off on January 21 2015. RIGHT SMACK IN THE MIDDLE OF THE COLDEST PERIOD UP HERE. It was about -10C. What they didn't know was that I spent a lot of time in Northern BC and the Yukon and knew how to deal with cold weather.

Now these arrogant fucks haven't finished with me.

I was gone from here from May 2 to June 4 this year and while I was absent they ignored my sign, entered my property and installed a smart meter.This to me is the height of Corporate fucking Arrogance. First the wait till I'm gone so they can chickenshit their way onto my property and then to add to this insult they arbitrarily install a "stupid" meter when they had cut off my services.

So, after fighting their bullshit for two years they finally got to me. I called them up and appologized to the person on the phone for what I was about to say. I told them that my anger was not directed to them but to the arrogant fucks that don't even know how to run a business. Then I told them they had 24 hrs to get the meter off my property and to cut the fucking line where it enters my lot.And that they better get the phoney balance out of collection. The person I was talking to said they coud remove the line and the meter,but that it could take up to 10 days. The uptic here is the arrived in 2 hours.

And I'd like to say that there was a great weight traken off my shoulders..

Now I have a couple of questions for these morons that try to bully seniors into paying for something they never received. Have these assholes never heard of wood heat? Or Propane cook stoves? Or composting toilets? And finally have they never heard of SOLAR power.
