David Gillespie, a farmer from the municipality of L’Isle-aux-Allumettes, chose to talk about the breakdown of services between two companies in the Upper Pontiac. Let us recall that last February, several residents had experienced problems with their telephone line., which had also resulted in a resolution of the municipal council of L’Isle-aux-Allumettes.

“It’s a good game, or the leader is perhaps also the loser,” exclaimed David Gillespie, who did not hide to talk about the improvement of Hydro-Quebec services in the Pontiac. since the beginning of the year.

“We felt that Hydro-Quebec wanted to see an improvement, apart from 4 breakdowns, which in my opinion are normal given that it was a storm that occurred, we have not had any breakdown since” says Gillespie.

“It is essential to list your service failures to improve the situation, because otherwise we will never be able to improve the situation. So let’s hope that Hydro can continue its good work and continue with an average of one outage per month as is the case this year. », Reaffirmed David Gillespie.
