“Chaîne de blocs et cryptomonnaie : une industries trop énergivore pour le Québec?” by Les Affaires

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.
