  1. I can no longer afford to be on the grid. Burning candles for light. Burning wood for heat, and cooking. Go to a public place for use of their computer, TV, etc. whenever necessary. Sounds like the wave of the future. That TV ad showing people choosing between food, and hydro, is actually coming true. Unbelievable!

  2. Same in UK. Rich landowners , overseas (mainly) owned turbine companies, lawyers – are pocketing fortunes in taxpayer subsidies – we pay the price as energy bills rocket, businesses become less competitive, our countryside/tourism is damaged, health is harmed and houses near tubines are unsellable. Our PM Cameron though supports all of this – a £ multimillionaire himself – he has no turbines anywhere near where he lives of course.

  3. One thing about the people of Quebec they take very little BS

  4. My math skills might a bit rusty but I’m calculating something different. That may be average of 2.9% increase on your “total billing” but it’s an average of 5.5% increase on just the “electricity line” on your bill. That to me is just a blatant falsification of the facts, but then again, what else would you have expected from these lying butt ends. In addition, this increase only covers the next 6 months and then it will go up again so the year over year increase will be much higher
