Nalcor and Lower Churchill opponents spar over report

in Daily Indygestion/Journalism by

While Nalcor officials are unhappy with a report on the project’s environmental, social, and economic impact, environmental groups are saying they are happy with the report. The Joint Panel Review of the Lower Churchill Project called Nalcor’s analysis “inadequate.” “We agree completely with the panel’s recommendation that the independent review is required,” said Liberal leader Kevin Aylward. “We’ve been saying that all along. And it will be part of our party platform, including public consultation, and we are looking at bringing in energy experts in North America who understand the energy grid and understand economics.” Meanwhile former premier Danny Williams also commented on the review Friday, saying that work on the Lower Churchill project needs to continue. “People have a right to scrutinize. People have a right to ask questions. You know, I welcome that,” he said.
