“'Comparison is comforting, perhaps, but nevertheless members continue to find that the fees are too high. I feel that their capacity to pay them has attained its limit,’ said Bernard Synnott, president of the Barreau du Québec. He hopes to lower the fee increases as much as possible. 'We’re working hard to generate surpluses at the Barreau, and my goal is to freeze all fee increases for the next five years’, explains Mr. Synnott, who has cut nearly 40 % of the advisory committees within the organization.”
