Newsletter serving English-speaking street associations and supporting groups in Pointe St. Charles, Montreal.
Abstract: This newsletter is published monthly by P.A.C.C., an organization of english-speaking street associations and supporting groups in Pointe St. Charles, Montreal. P.A.C.C. works by organizing people around various community issues and by offering various goods and services to its members on a cooperative basis.
In this issue three articles are devoted to describing P.A.C.C.'s struggle to obtain more adequate service from the police, fire and sanitation departments.
The feature article concerns the citizen struggle with Gaz Metopolitan and Hydro-Quebec, both of which recently increased their rates. P.A.C.C. has joined with other organizations all over Montreal to fight the increases. They demand that gas and electricity prices be frozen pending a new rate structure under which companies which consume a high level of energy would pay more and residential consumers who use less energy would pay less.
The newsletter also includes coming events and other information relevant to P.A.C.C. members, for example, information and joining the heating oil co-op.
