MONTREAL, July 18, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - A class action filed by Paquette Gadler Inc. was authorized yesterday, July 17, 2012, against the crown corporation Hydro-Quebec in the name of Mrs. Chantal Maltais and Monique Charland regarding billing problems that have transpired since Hydro-Quebec proceeded with the integration of its new information technology system in 2008.
This is the second class action which has been authorized against Hydro-Quebec relating to its billing system. In effect, on August 23rd, 2010, the Honourable Steve J. Reimnitz, of the Superior Court of Quebec, authorized a first class action against Hydro-Quebec seeking the recovery of interest and/or administration fees in excess of the 5% annual rate prescribed by law as a result of Hydro-Quebec's failure to indicate the annual interest rate in its invoices.
The new information technology system created billing problems for Hydro-Quebec's clients who were overbilled, underbilled or not billed at all, in some cases over periods of several months.
