Muskrat Falls

NDP Environment and Conservation critic George Murphy

NDP Environment and Conservation critic George Murphy (MHA, St. John’s East) wants clear assurances that government will regulate and monitor Nalcor’s use of Agent White as it constructs the Muskrat Falls transmission line. The chemical, also known as Tordon 101, is banned for domestic use in the province; the province’s continued use of it to clear roadside vegetation has been controversial.
