NDP Leader Lorraine Michael (MHA, Signal Hill-Quidi Vidi) wants to know whether Husky Oil is considering building a natural gas plant in this province – and she wants proof that government has made $50 million from the power plant expropriated with the Abitibi mill in 2008.

 

NDP Innovation, Business & Rural Development critic Christopher Mitchelmore (MHA, The Straits-White Bay North) says there are solid environmental and economic reasons for government to encourage the development of a wood pellet industry in this province.

 

MR. SPEAKER: The Member for The Straits – White Bay North.

MR. MITCHELMORE:Mr. Speaker, an Ireland forestry association study indicates that if just 25 per cent of their public buildings were converted to wood pellet boilers, the savings annually would be $137 million.

SOME HON. MEMBERS: Oh, oh!
MR. SPEAKER: Order, please!

 

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

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

NDP Leader and Natural Resources Critic Lorraine Michael (MHA, Signal Hill-Quidi Vidi) is calling on government to be more transparent and informative regarding the situation at the Holyrood generating station.
