NDP Leader Lorraine Michael

NDP Leader Lorraine Michael (MHA, Signal Hill-Quidi Vidi) says anyone who hoped to learn anything solid about Muskrat Falls at Nalcor’s Annual General Meeting left, as she did, feeling they had heard nothing new.

 

NDP Leader Lorraine Michael (MHA, Signal Hill-Quidi Vidi) says the increasing number of objections to and questions about the feasibility of the Maritime Link raises a billion-dollar question for her: Will the provincial government still insist on proceeding with the controversial Muskrat Falls project if the federal loan guarantee for the project is cancelled?
