A call for the leaders to debate Muskrat Falls

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.

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.
