Les Affaires quotes Montréal lawyer, André Turmel, in an article on blockchains and cryptocurrency.
André Turmel, a partner lawyer with Fasken, spoke on behalf of his client, the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB), who is in favour of a special rate for the cryptocurrency mining industry. “A year ago Hydro-Québec was overwhelmed by the demand for mining. The CFIB is pro-development, but in a measured manner. We have advocated for the introduction of a specific rate to reduce the risk.”
