According to an article on The Sun, Russell Irwin of Toronto Canada has chosen to live off of the power grid instead of being forced to accept a Smart Meter:
‘Tuesday is the first day of the rest of Russell Irwin’s life without access to the Ontario power supply.
He knows that by late Tuesday evening Hydro One will be cutting power to his Orangeville, Ont., home because of his refusal to meet the utility’s demand that he accept a smart meter.
So this veteran, who served Canada by driving a tank through some of the most harrowing land battles of the Second World War, is doing what he does best.
Irwin is hoping for the best and preparing for the worst.
“My family has helped me buy a generator so I can be self sufficient,” Irwin said. “Canadians are an independent people and I think I should be ready when Hydro cuts my power off like they said they would.
“We managed to get the money together somehow for the generator and fuel so I will just have to fight on.”
