MINING SMART METER READINGS

The City of Toronto should not turn smart meters into snitch meters, a globally-recognized privacy expert says.
Dr. Ann Cavoukian said Toronto Mayor John Tory’s comment that the city would “mine” residents’ water and hydro usage data to figure out how many homes are vacant – the first step in his proposal to levy a special property tax on speculators – raises privacy red flags.

    A very good reason to say "NO" to the installation of a smart meter on your home is that the smart meter is legally considered a surveillance device. Once you allow it to be installed you are giving your permission to be watched/tracked.
