The STO is not responsible for the comments and opinions of users.

The STO authorizes users to include hyperlinks provided that the content is relevant to the topics. It is understood that the STO is not responsible for the content of external sites.

To ensure constructive and respectful conversations, the STO reserves the right to remove any comments it deems inappropriate or that do not comply with this directive or the terms of use of social media. The STO may also banish subscribers or fans if it finds that they are not complying with the established rules.

Response time

Normally, the STO follows up on posts to its Facebook page and Twitter account, and conducts social media monitoring. Although the use of social media implies the notion of a rapid, instant response, it is sometimes necessary to check information with the organization's different services or departments. Delays can therefore be expected at times when this is required.

The STO will try to answer your questions as quickly as possible from Monday to Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

To submit comments, including those related to the service, you should complete the  form available on our Web site or contact Customer Relations at 819 770 3242. This process allows us to compile all the comments received and to ensure follow-up when requested by a customer.
