We had anticipated being done a bit earlier regarding the Default reply’s to the BC Hydro and LGIC Notice of Fatal Defect – to BC Hydro’s attempt at charging people an alleged “Legacy Meter Charge”.
That said, we anticipate being done this shortly.
For now, you can pay the total of your electricity usage on your BC Hydro bill, which is in accordance with your original contract with BC Hydro – until we complete our response.
Doing so will NOT void your default and lawful claim of right process you have accomplished so far.
This post is for those who have used the Claim of Right, Notice of Default etc. located HERE only.
Remember, YOU have them in ‘Default’ for not rebutting your “statements of truth”, which did validate and confirm your statements, terms and conditions.
Also note, many of you have received a reply letter from the Lieutenant Governor’s private secretary stating that Her Honour requested that her secretary forward your NOTICE OF FATAL DEFECT directly to the Minister of Justice and Attorney General “Suzanne Anton” who is also a member of the Executive Council as well as an elected member of the Legislative Assembly.
Within that letter of reply, were a lot of great things for us.
In researching and understanding what needs to be done, time is required and at times, when we are digging around we find more things to use – with perhaps a discovery of even more of their trickery.
Thus our choice is really to get something done right and we are pretty sure that you would agree to get it done right, even if it takes a bit longer – especially at this stage.
The easiest thing to do is get out a calculator to determine the alleged charge plus tax amount of the alleged “Legacy Meter Charge”.
We cannot give an exact alleged total, because for many, this has been allegedly ‘pro-rated’ over X amount of days.
You could pay the total of your electricity usage online (less the alleged “Legacy Meter Charge plus its tax portion”) by cheque, at the bank, or other… pretty much all the ways you may have used before.
This means, you PAY FOR YOUR ELECTRICAL USAGE PORTION OF YOUR BILL and the TAXES APPLICABLE TO YOUR ELECTRICAL USAGE.
BUT DO NOT PAY WHATEVER THE TOTAL IS ON YOUR BILL FOR THE ALLEGED “LEGACY METER FEES” AND THE TAXES APPLIED TO WHATEVER THE CHARGE OF THE ALLEGED “LEGACY METER FEES” IS.
As said, we do not know the exact charge on every bill in BC for the alleged “Legacy Meter Fees” but we do know it varies, so we cannot state “Pay X Amount” because it varies. We hope you can look at your bill and do some simple math and figure this out.
No one method of payment is better or worse than the other.
We would also like to mention, that several Hydro customers on automatic payment plans have contacted us, to let us know they were not charged by BC Hydro (on their automatic payment plan) for any alleged “Legacy Meter Charge”, even though the alleged fee appeared written on their printed bill. We believe this validates the fact that BC Hydro knows they are not lawfully or legally able to violate your Claim of Right notices, to charge such a fee without your consent.
We will be posting shortly on what we hope will be our final solution.
We also suggest you start taking pictures of your meter AT LEAST once a month so you can at least have something to have IF or WHEN your bill shows any subtle or large increases as some have been seeing. Otherwise you have nothing to dispute against what they have done, by accident, on purpose or otherwise. Perhaps put a note on your calendar now at the end or sometime during the month to remind yourself, or do it each time you receive your BC Hydro Bill.
