The meter is Left-dark, right-bright... its the adjustment wheels that are backwards
I have never understood why Canon does it this way but an easy fix...

1) Turn the Camera on
2) Hit the menu button
3) joy stick over to the right, next to the last icon (custom function icon)
4) roll the big wheel on the back to get to F.FnIV: Operation/Others
5) hit the set button(middle of the big wheel)
6) rotate the big wheel to "Dial direction during TV/AV"
7) select "reverse direction"

So now when you rotate the shutter adjustment on the front on the camera it correctly tracks the meter.. clockwise -brighter, counter clockwise-darker

The big wheel on the back will now close down/open up the lens with clockwise -opening
the lens and counter clockwise -closing the lens down...
