Hydro Quebec going to Quebec court????? The renewal contract is auto in 2016????? It would be nice if there was no renewal agreement. What will happen when Quebec becomes a non part of Canada ( and it will some day) ?????

Shooting the messenger just doesn't cut it anymore, John. Quebec continues to be relentless in protecting the rights of its citizens. Nova Scotia is proving equally relentless in protecting the price and security of supply for its citizens. The major flaw of Muskrat remains its price competiveness - the proof is that it is approximately 4 to 5 times the cost of Quebec's Romaine River. The weak kneed PC federal government, (having been heavily ABD'd), have put Nova Scotia in the driver's seat on the loan guarantee and will never gather the guts to tackle Quebec on interprovincial electricity transmission. Meanwhile Nalcor and our own government say everything is sensitive and must be kept from its citizens but everything is Ok, we are in control of the great chess game. The great big problem is that it is doubtful that anybody believes it. Have the Newfoundland and Labrador citizens got anybody protecting their rights, security of supply and price- it sure does not look a whole lot like it.

One thing about this group of lawyers I could never understand is why haven't they taken their case to court? They like to trot it out to the media every time there is a court case, or an issue regarding the project, yet never want to go to court, as did Cabana. Court challenges are normal on projects of this size, and everyone knew HQ would do what they could to stymie our efforts. With the end of the UC contract in sight the last thing HQ wants is for us to successfully transmit power without their say so for the first time in our history.I find it amusing that we listen to the likes of the 2041 group, every time they make an appearance, yet Nalcor, and all the firms and people who work for them are dismissed, like what they have to say not important to the conversation. I think I am beginning to understand the relationship between the media, and the 2041 group...mutually parasitic...

This should be impartial. HQ appealing to a Quebec Court.

Yet again another example of our powers to be rushing headlong into a major development without doing the proper due diligence. You simply do not risk billions of taxpayers dollars like you are playing some sort of high stakes poker game. Ah yes, the legacy of Danny Williams, maybe he will be remembered for the the Icecaps and Dannyland instead?
