To have heard all the talk about this project over the past who knows how long you'd have thought there was absolutely NO RISK. Isn't is supposed to be the best 'green' energy project in North America? In fact, I don't believe there's even any intent to shut down Holyrood (apparently one of the worst polluters in Canada) even IF Muskrat/Gull Island projects came on stream. I think most people are beginning to understand now that if there was a viable market for this project it would have been well underway by now. Why not spend the money on truly green energy like wind, waves, tidal etc? Or if it is developed why not replace all the diesels in Labrador and furthermore make some of this power available for developments here. In fact maybe the only place it will be cheap is if you use it in Labrador.

There are two significant words in the above article: QUEBEC OBSTRUCTION. Anyone want to bet on this project getting off the the ground, if co-operation from La Belle province is being counted on?

You'd think that, John but apparently there are no markets for power from this project. If Martin had markets they'd have already sanctioned the thing and they'd be able to tell what the GHG emission reductions would be in the markets. Since there are no markets secured, they have nothing except a lot of hot air.

You would think that with all the coal fired, oil fired, and nuclear plants on the eastern seaboard, markets for power would be the easiest part of this process. Most States, and provinces are desparate to get away from generating dirty power.
