Muskrat Falls

NDP House Leader Lorraine Michael

NDP House Leader Lorraine Michael (MHA, St. John’s East-Quidi Vidi) wants to know what government has to say about an industrial accident at the Muskrat Falls site near midnight Sunday.

Since the original announcement of the Muskrat Falls project, says NDP House Leader Lorraine Michael (MHA, St. John’s East-Quidi Vidi), her caucus has been asking questions calling for greater transparency around the project’s contracts and terms, as well as the impact of its costs on consumers’ household budgets.

NDP House Leader Lorraine Michael (MHA, St. John’s East-Quidi Vidi) says in light of the many concerns raised by today’s release of the Ernst Young interim report of the Muskrat Falls Project, government must immediately engage the province’s Public Utilities Board in overseeing the Muskrat Falls hydroelectric project.

 
NDP Seniors Critic Gerry Rogers

NDP Seniors Critic Gerry Rogers (MHA, St. John’s Centre) says the inevitable increases in electricity prices that will come when Muskrat Falls power comes on line will hit one group of the population especially hard.

That group is the province’s seniors, particularly women, who often have particularly low incomes.
