Muskrat Falls

NDP Leader Lorraine Michael

NDP Leader Lorraine Michael (MHA, Signal Hill – Quidi Vidi) is wrapping up the first week of her caucus’s “Tell The Tories” campaign with a reminder to government that the people of the province have been asking for more transparency regarding their Muskrat Falls mega-project.

 

NDP Leader Lorraine Michael (MHA, Signal Hill – Quidi Vidi) says the Premier is once again attempting to diminish and undermine the role of the PUB while avoiding true accountability following the recent energy crisis.

Michael was reacting to the announcement by Government that it will initiate an independent review of the province’s electricity system.

 

NDP Leader Lorraine Michael (MHA, Signal Hill-Quidi Vidi) is once again speaking to Government’s failure to develop energy efficiency and conservation programs.

NDP Leader Lorraine Michael (MHA, Signal Hill-Quidi Vidi) wants to know what, if anything, is happening with the hundreds of millions of dollars allotted for Nalcor in this year’s budget. She also wants to know what kind of oversight the government has on the use of this money, especially given the massive cost overruns of a similar project in Manitoba.

 

MR. SPEAKER: The hon. the Leader of the Third Party.

MS MICHAEL: Thank you very much, Mr. Speaker.

NDP Leader Lorraine Michael (MHA, Signal Hill-Quidi Vidi) says the Maritime Link portion of the Muskrat Falls megaproject is a perfect example of why the provincial government should have allowed the Public Utilities Board to scrutinize the entire project before committing billions of public dollars to it.

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.
