Members of the NDP Caucus were looking for answers from government on Muskrat Falls today in the House of Assembly, sparked by the Premier’s statement last week that electrical bills will double for residents of the province in three years.

“That means people now paying $300 a month will be facing a staggering $600 for their power bill,” said St. John’s Centre MHA Gerry Rogers.
