Where next in the fight over Muskrat Falls and rate mitigation?

in Opinion/To Each Their Own by

On Friday, a group of protesters gathered at the Public Utilities Building in St. John’s, as they have for the past few weeks, protesting current and anticipated power rate hikes as a result of the Muskrat Falls project. Earlier this week, meanwhile, a coalition of over two hundred prestigious academics and authors signed a letter to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, calling for a halt to the Muskrat Falls project, in light of the risk of irrevocable damage it poses to the environment and culture of Indigenous-led communities in Labrador. On the Island: power rate hikes. On the Labrador: threats to health, safety, and culture. The thing that binds these two acts of protest is Muskrat Falls. It’s a scandal that has united the people of the province in scorn, derision and outrage against a bad deal signed and supported by successive provincial governments, which threatens the very future of the…

‘What we can learn for the future’: David Vardy on the Muskrat Falls inquiry

in Featured/Journalism/Q&A by

The name David Vardy has been linked with criticism of the Muskrat Falls project since its earliest days, when he had already retired from public service. Vardy, a former Clerk of the Executive Council and Secretary to Cabinet and chairman of the Public Utilities Board, says the questions we really need to answer are about democracy and how we as a society are going to respond to Muskrat Falls.

A call for the leaders to debate Muskrat Falls

in Daily Indygestion/Email Indygestion/Journalism/NL Election 2011 by

The Telegram is reporting that three men who have delved into the numbers on the Muskrat Falls project are calling for the provincial government and Nalcor Energy to reconsider alternatives and for provincial party leaders to have a debate solely on Lower Churchill development prior to the Oct. 11 election. Richard Cashin, the President of Fish, Food and Allied Workers (FFAW), Ed Hearn, a lawyer in Labrador City and a former director of Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro; and Dennis Browne, a lawyer in St. John’s and former Consumer Advocate for the Public Utilities Board, held held a news conference yesterday to make the call. For more information, click to link below to read the article at The Telegram. With the timing of the announcement, and those involved (Cashin was once a Liberal MP), one has to wonder what the political motives of the news conference were. Source: The Telegram
