NDP Leader Lorraine Michael (MHA, Signal Hill-Quidi Vidi) told the House of Assembly today she was “outraged” at a government move to keep details of the Loan Guarantee term sheet from opposition members until after question period today – even though the media was briefed before the House opened.
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.
NDP Leader Lorraine Michael (MHA, Signal Hill-Quidi Vidi) wants to know the terms of the supposed loan guarantee in support of the proposed Muskrat Falls project. She says it is completely unacceptable that the term sheet has not been made public.
NDP Environment and Conservation critic George Murphy (MHA, St. John’s East) wants to know whether government has fully thought out the increased costs it will face if it goes ahead with the Muskrat Falls development.
