There’s a new expression in British Columbia. Getting ‘Corix’d’ It (Corix) is a large conglomerate which “helps build and manage utility infrastructures in North America,” it boasts. It’s also under contract for the likes of BC Hydro and “Starting in summer 2011 Corix Utilities will begin installing 1.8 million smart meters for BC Hydro’s Smart Metering Project in several communities throughout BC, with completion targeted for December 2012,” it states . The trouble is, it does this without asking householders’ permissions and in the face of increasingly strident objections from people who believe the meters constitute dangerous health hazards because of radiation they emit . Employees can also go ahead with the installations whether you’re at home or not , and whether you like it or not.
