Quebec Blogger Slams Government For Dissing Crypto Mining

The Quebec government’s recent actions to disconnect cryptocurrency mining from the region has drawn criticism from Francois Remy, head of the digital desk at Les Affaires, a Quebec newspaper, in a recent blog.

Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard has said the bitcoin miners planning to move to the region will not get cheap electricity from the government-owned utility Hydro-Quebec, as the utility may not have enough power to meet the demand. The utility has received an order to await instructions from the government.

“In recent months, we have received projects representing several thousand megawatts,” said a recent follow-up document sent by Hydro-Québec to some blockchain contractors.
