This is a Stone Age concept, promoted by dinosaurs. Anyone who has a clue about what's coming should know that DER (distributed energy resources) is the way to go. Long transmission lines and big generators belong to the past. They are highly vulnerable and needlessly expensive.

The power created by harnessing the force of a water falls, which ran for millions of years, and will run for millions of years longer at no cost, turning generating turbines creating millions of HOURS OF POWER, With No Smoke as it is with The Holy Rood Generating plant that consumes millions of Barrels of oil each year, and that lists it as one of the top ten AIR smog or dirty air producers in the world. Wind Power is Not Reliable, OIL prices will continue to rise as the supply decreases, But The Power Of Water Will Run OLD Saying ( For As Long As Water Runs And Grass Grows} FOR EVER. Water Power Is Reliable,Dependable,and Consistent for as the old saying Goes ( For as long as water runs and grass grows) FOREVER It Is The Only Sure Supply Of Power, One of the Cheapest To Operate, Cleanest, Most Reliable source of power in the World.

There you go again, spouting your usual nonsense. You call $10 billion free power? Where is your head?

There are almost twice as many Nova Scotians as there are Newfoundland and Labradorians. The money they're asked to pay is less than a quarter of the 50-year loan we all have to pay back. Not to mention that they will get our electricity cheaper than we will. They might think they got it bad but it really sucks to be us.

In Newfoundland the Public Utilities Board was muzzled, pushed around, kept in the dark and obstructed in every way by the Government of Newfoundland and no public hearing was permitted into the Muskrat Falls project. The Government of Nova Scotia allowed the Public Utilities Board in Nova Scotia to conduct a public hearing into the Muskrat Falls project that may last for 3 weeks or more. That is the difference between living in a Province with a democracy and living in a Province run by a Dictator! It appears that the Government of Newfoundland would prefer that Nova Scotia not hold a public hearing into Muskrat Falls. Why is that, I wonder?

Great to see that it's politics as usual...in NS as well as in NL. These career politicians don't care about muskrat falls, or how much people pay for power...all they care about is getting their face in the media. They don't come up with any serious alternatives....just the usual crap about wind and nuclear power....really? LOL Give me a break. The bottom line is that we need additional power here on the island, and in Labrador. Even without the maritime link we will still need the power. Politicains here and in NS trying to make a name for themselves by opposing the project, yet where are the viable alternatives? More coal? Nuclear waste? Buying from Hydro Quebec? Are they better options then simply paying two billion for a cable across the gulf? The answer is no....and those opposing know the answer is no, but hey...why let the truth and facts get in the way of smearing a great project for your own gain?

Sounds like the same questions Newfoundlanders have about the project as we don't have any answers as to what it will cost us either.
