Holyrood oil fired generator is ranked as one of the top ten dirty air or enviorment poluters in Canada, This oil fired generator is consuming thousands of gallons of oil per day,as the cost of oil goes up so does the cost of power. There is talk of using natural gas let that alone for future transportation use The Muskrat falls when built will supply a reliable consistent and cheapest source of power,There is no cheaper, reliable or cleaner source of power in the world than water running over a rock, The power will be there as the saying goes, " For as long as water runs and grass grows"

Well when the Lab mines (4) get their hands on 80% of this power paid for by taxpayers - their shareholders will make hundreds of millions if not billions. They're the ones behind this, many ex-politicians and cronies. What's there not to understand? Nfld does not need this power. Labrador mines do and mostly their shareholders. Nfld does not use 1/2 of the power at Holyrood now. Money making RACKET on the backs of taxpayers. God knows how many bribes are incuded - as always in NL historically over our resources - taken away or stolen Should be stopped for once and for all. Rediculous scam. Amen

What a Scam by Nalcor and politicians! To try and rush this through and not answer questions properly. Very misleading answers. Expressions of Interest should not be allowed at this time until hearings are complete. Appears there are a lot of mouths watering over all the money that will be made while on the backs of taxpayers. A huge transfer of funds is about to take place from the lower and middle class to the upper crust. This is a serious Social Control issue and an abuse of powers issue, if not corruption.

The fact that you do not understand the answers does not make them misleading.

The information is out there. The minister has stated again and again that it will mean a 15 dollar a month average increase on our bills. The project will not be subsidizing any electricity. We are trading off a percentage that we will not be able to use in exchange for a 2 billion dollar investment, and the ability to sell power on the spot market for profit. The only way we would be subsidizing is if we had a need for the power ourselves, yet still sold it for less then what we pay for it here. That is not waht is going to happen.

Why can't we get estimates of the power rate increases which consumers will be expected to pay when this project comes on stream and to what extent consumers will subsidize power rates sold into New England and mainland Canada.

She would make a good liberal. That's what they would do. Spend billions on proping up a doomed system, then in the end scrap it and decide that muskrat was the best idea all along.
