Muskrat Falls

NDP Leader Lorraine Michael

MR. MURPHY: Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

 

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 now that the loan guarantee approval seems to rely on Nova Scotia’s private power utility, and with Emera’s final decision months away, there is time to send the proposed Muskrat Falls project back to the Public Utilities Board for independent scrutiny.
