NDP House Leader Lorraine Michael

Since the original announcement of the Muskrat Falls project, says NDP House Leader Lorraine Michael (MHA, St. John’s East-Quidi Vidi), her caucus has been asking questions calling for greater transparency around the project’s contracts and terms, as well as the impact of its costs on consumers’ household budgets.

The date the provincial treasury can expect the long-promised boost from
the Muskrat Falls project keeps moving further away. Today in the House of Assembly, NDP Parliamentary Leader Lorraine Michael (MHA, St. John’s East-Quidi Vidi) asked government to update the House on when that date is now projected to fall.

NDP Consumer Affairs critic George Murphy (MHA, St. John’s East) says household budgets in the province are reaching the breaking point, and the latest multi-million dollar ask from Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro may be the final straw if the province’s Public Utilities Board grants the rate increase.

 

NDP Leader Lorraine Michael (MHA, Signal Hill-Quidi Vidi) says the increasing amount of money the people of the province are expected to give to support the province’s energy-focused Crown Corporation, is a matter of huge concern for her, and should be for the government as well.

NDP Leader Lorraine Michael (MHA, Signal Hill-Quidi Vidi) says the good work done by the province’s Public Utility Board investigating the January 2014 blackouts is a clear demonstration that the PUB should also be given oversight of Muskrat Falls.

 

NDP Leader Lorraine Michael (MHA, Signal Hill-Quidi Vidi) has made a written presentation to the Public Utilities Board pre-conference hearing into the investigation of extensive power outages in the province earlier this year.

 

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) has written the Chairperson and Chief Executive Officer of the PUB, Andy Wells, to ask for an inquiry into the widespread power outages that affected the island portion of the province from January 2 -6, 2014.
