Not in force
188. Section 78 of the Act respecting the Régie du logement (chapter R‐8.1) is amended
(1) by inserting, after the word “decide” in the first paragraph, the words “that a writing signed by an authorized person at the Ministère de l’Emploi et de la Solidarité sociale bears witness to the fact that a person is a recipient under a last resort financial assistance program and to the amount of the benefit granted and that the writing is accepted in lieu of the testimony of a representative of that department. Similarly, a commissioner may decide”;
(2) by replacing the second paragraph by the following paragraph:
“However, a party may require the presence of the representative of the Ministère de l’Emploi et de la Solidarité sociale or of the inspector at the hearing ; however, if the board considers that the production of the writing or report would have sufficed, it may condemn that party to pay costs in the amount it fixes.”
