    In a letter dated last Friday, the spokesperson on economic development, Xavier Barsalou-Duval, said to have been outraged to learn that the ski resort of Mont-Tremblant will post the prices in us dollars.

    “This is in my opinion a non-sense since this ski resort is situated in Quebec, then it seems to me obvious that it should set its price in canadian dollars “, writes the deputy of Pierre-Boucher-Les Patriotes-Verchères to the minister.

    Last Thursday, The Newspaper revealed that it will not be possible to get a going on the annual ski unlimited on the slopes of mont-Tremblant unless you pay in american money. Nothing in the act prevents the owner of the site, Alterra Mountain Company, to do so.

    The Bloc québécois fears that other companies follow his example, such as Walmart, Best Buy, or Mcdonald ” s.

    Consumers would be the losers, according to the deputy Barsalou-Duval, paying for their more expensive products.
