Retired Armed Forces captain Jerry Flynn spoke a crowd of about 40 people at Kinnaird Hall in Castlegar Saturday night. Flynn talked about the dangers of smart meters.

The Kelowna resident was a guest of the Castlegar based Citizens for Safe Technology and was introduced by Cliff Paluck, the local chapter's head.

FortisBC has applied to the B.C. Utlities Commission and plans to install smart meters into all households in their service area.

The stop was one of three in the area for Flynn, who also spoke at Trail Saturday afternoon and South Slocan today (Sunday).
