Class action against Bell Expressvu regarding the charging of an abusive interest rate on late fees

MONTREAL, Jan. 11, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Mr. Claude Gagnon introduced this day a motion to authorize the institution of a class action against the corporation Bell Expressvu regarding the charging since June 1st, 2010 of an annual interest rate of 42.58% on the amounts paid after the expiry date prescribed for payment.

The unilateral modification by Bell Expressvu of the annual interest rate applicable on late fees represents a 58% increase compared to the annual interest rate of 26.82% that was charged to its clients before June 1st, 2010.

This class action concerns all persons who have paid late fees since June 1st, 2010 pursuant to a contract with Bell Expressvu for television services.

This new class action follows the decision of the Honourable Lucie Fournier j.c.s. rendered in another case on December 16, 2011 which certified the class action against Bell Canada and Bell Mobility Inc. regarding the charging since June 1st, 2010 of an annual interest rate of 42.58% on the amounts paid after the expiry date prescribed for payment.

All persons concerned by the present motion to authorize the institution of this class action, may, if they wish provide us with their relevant information by completing the form obtained by consulting the web site of the petitioner's lawyers at www.paquettegadler.com.
