NDP House Leader Lorraine Michael

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 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.
