Hydro-Québec : The government must not keep proceeds from overpayments

Quebec

To Premier François Legault and Energy Minister Jonathan Julien,

Since 2005, Quebeckers have overpaid for their electricity to the tune of nearly $1.7 billion.

Instead of returning these overpayments, the Government of Quebec decided to keep this money in its pockets.

Since 2017, a mechanism has been put in place to return 50% of those overpayments to consumers. We believe this is not even. The government should not keep this ill-gotten money.

We, the undersigned, ask your government to refund these overpayments to Quebec consumers and to amend the law so that 100% of future overpayments are returned to Quebeckers.
You have the power to change who influences politics in our country: big unions, big corporations and government-funded special interest groups can be challenged by the contributions of thousands of individual taxpayers who care to make a difference.
