If you look at the graph the government has on its website of Muskrat Falls vs Isolated Island Cases it looks like the price of electricity is going to double between 2010 and 2016. If a $50.00 electricity bill in 2010 is going to be over $100.00 by 2016 none of us will be able to afford to use the electricity if and when it comes on stream.

King Danny is said to have stated that this project is solid enough that he would even put his own money into it; nice...wish he had put his own money into the Abitibi expropriation fiasco and not yours and mine! Let me get my thoughts around this current proposal: let's say I draw this analogy...I want to buy a Cadilac to go into the taxi business, (my prefererance is to develop Gull Island); however, I re-think it and can only affordably see the feesabilty of purchasing a Chevette; (settling on Muskrat Falls). So, I announce that I'm ready to open a taxi stand; but wait now...I haven't arranged any financing yet with my bank; (no commitment from Feds); geez, might this be a little premature to announce a business opening when I haven't even gotten a permit to operate yet (land claims settlements with Aboriginal groups; or environmental assessments), much less financial backing? All of this might be a case of the cart before the horse; good luck with that Danny; hope you haven't burnt too many bridges up along and that Stevie and the boys have short memories. Taxi, taxi......

Actually, Danny done quite well on the expropriated hydro from Abitibi. If he is willing to pay out 4.5 billion dollars or more for 600mwatts of power, and says it is a good deal, then the 100plus mwatts of power produced by Exploits River Hydro should be worth almost a BILLION DOLLARS.And all Danny had to do to get it was to run a 100 year old forest industry out of GFW and destroy the good livelyhoods of 700 workers. But we must not forget that he is giving GFW a 800,000 dollars a year grant, and as for the 700 exworkers, well, good luck out west boys. So, you see, Danny is great, lol...

Honourable Premier Danny Williams, Instead of going back 30 years to show how unaccommodating Quebec is and was maybe you should go back some 83 years… How accommodating was Newfoundland in 1927 and 1949 when Labrador was sectioned off? How much did Newfoundland pay and how much did Quebec get for the disputed land? When did Quebec agree to the boundaries? There are always two sides to a story. Respectfully Mark Aubere Morrissey

To M.A.M. - Prehaps you and people like you, who speak of things that every person in NL should know if they do not already, should read a history book. Old news that was settled long ago. Also that side of the two sided story has nothing to do with the reasons Qeubec was not willing to treat NL fearly one this particular deal.

Liberals and NDP wouldn't know a good deal if one struck them in the mouth. The Liberals are jealous and want the deal to fail, simply because it was their party that signed that horrible Upper Churchill deal. They don't want Williams to succeed where their party failed.
