‘Tis truly the season of giving. As if transit fare hikes wasn’t enough for you, Hydro-Quebec is also asking for fee increases: 2.9% starting in April.
The increase needs to be approved by the government before it can happen. That decision should come in February or March.
And it WILL be approved because the HQ Mafia will put out an argument that HQ Transénergie is leaking money despite that the other 3 branches are making HUGE profits. And that these 4 branches are like 4 different corporations and can’t exchange monies, yada, yada, yada same old BS and no one will oppose them for very long. Meanwhile the employees make an average of 20% more than their homologues (can that be used in english?) in the private sector. I wonder where the money’s going?
Every year HQ declares millions of dollars in profit, after all research costs are paid off by the way. They continue you to sell energy to US but never at same rate we consumers pay. It is not like we don’t have enough energy & not that it cost much more to make it. I don’t mind a .5 or less increase every 3 years. It is outragious what they ask for.
