Paul; Your points are taken and have been taken before you mentioned them. Of course the jobs will be located in Labrador. How much municipal infrastructure, residential constructiions and lasting municipal/local business benefit will come from a maximum 5 - 6 year project? My comments (ok, not spelled out perhaps) were to do with long term lasting benefits that Labrador should (as anyone anywhere should form such a development) be able to count on from destroying a river (taking away tourism, forestry, perhaps mining opportunities) and building something purely for the benefit of EXPORTING power. Don't you think we should be able to use some for benefit of all the communities HERE as well as benefitting ALL OF ATLANTIC CANADA. Wouldn't that be just fair?

LLoyd...where are the majority f the jobs going to be? Labrador!!! I think it would be safe to assume that many of the benefits from the work in Labrador will benefit Labrador including the long term jobs and maintenance for the site. So please tell me how this will not give any benefit to Labrador. I see short and long term benefits.

Good for ALL of Atlantic Canada? Clearly you are not aware that even though this project is being built by destroying a river in Labrador, there are currently NO PLANS for Labradorians to be allowed any of this power. Last I figured we were part of Atlantic Canada. Way to go PEI, I hope it feels nice for you to be helping subject us the same treatment we get from Nfld. thanks a lot.

Typical politician - trying to attach his wagon to someone else's good news. Go have a feed of potatoes with Anne of Green Gables.
