On Our Radar

The Telegram strives to keep the public informed, particularly when that information involves homes, neighbourhoods, security, social justice, livelihoods and pocketbooks.
Our reporters ask questions on your behalf on matters of public interest and policy, but the answers aren’t always forthcoming.
In order to shine a little extra light on stories where information is denied or deemed unavailable, or where those accountable refuse to comment, we’re introducing a regular feature called On Our Radar, to let readers know the efforts we’ve gone to on their behalf.
On Our Radar gives a synopsis of a story we’re following, lets you know the current status of our coverage, and explains who ultimately has the answers to the questions we’ve been asking.
We hope you find it informative and that it prompts you to ask some questions of your own.
Find out what’s On Our Radar, every week in The Weekend Telegram.

Does the “good faith” argument have any merit? In it-self : No ! Because le Code Civil du Quebec doesn't allow a contract to be reopened. A contract is a contract ! However, in 1999, Hydro-Quebec and Nalcor made a Shareholder agreement which was by it -self a breach in the 1969 Contract. The Contract had been broken. Because of this pecedent, Quebec Judges are now allowed to make any other changes in the contract, this including the energy price.
