To Mrs. Diane Jean, Theimprest Managerand President of the Régie de l'énergie of Quebec.



For some time now, between the scandal of Hydro-Québec's overpayments and the soaring gas prices, we now have a new request for a hike in hydroelectricity rates.

We, the undersigned, refuse to have Hydro-Québec increase their rates in 2019 to reimburse us what they have already overcharged us. We ask you not to authorize Hydro-Québec to increase their electricity rates.

You should know that only in 2017, more than 50 000 families were disconnected, unable to pay their bills... Quebec households should now support a 0.8% increase on hydroelectricity rates. This increase will also impact the most fragile households, whose increased sensitivity to higher energy prices is known.

Take your role seriously! Hydro-Québec can not continue like this. Many citizens can not afford to pay their energy bill! It is a scandal!

You must understand that many Quebec citizens trust the role of the Régie de l'énergie as it ordered Hydro-Québec to reimburse us. In this perspective of trust and ethics, we now ask you to refuse the increase requested by the State corporation Hydro-Québec.

As you know, Quebecers are asking for a refund through a class action claiming $ 1.2 billion in overpayments to the State corporation's clients.

Before this dispute is brought up to date and justice is done, we ask the Régie de l'énergie to refuse this increase.



We kindly ask you to take our request very seriously and we send you our most sincere greetings.



Respectfully.
