Danny Williams will never admit he was wrong,,He has his hired guns ,like Martin and Dunderdale trained to do the same..This project is the second comeing of the upper churchill.It has the potential to bankrupt our province,and double our power bills,yet these ego-maniacs keep trying to shove it down our throuts

Does OBSERVER suggest his appraisal of the report will be superior to that of The Telegram? Duh!

I trust that all who comment will have read the report. As reported, some aspects of the report appear speculative. I will withhold other comments until I have read the report and suggest that others do the same.

Can't help but wonder if "Fast Eddie' would have such a cavalier attitude if even some of these hundreds of millions already spent were his? His hands should be cuffed and his lip buttoned. My hope is the Feds will renege on their backing.

I have to admit that it is good to FINALLY see some objectivity concerning this project.

It has been a good news week for Newfoundlanders and Labradorians. THE low cost alternative is installing natural gas turbines at Holyrood and using a LNG regassification vessel (see Excellerate Energy) as a supply until the resources offshore are produced. The $200million now required to clear cut the Muskrat Falls reservoir location would be enough to buy a regassification vessel or pay for one third the capital cost to convert Holyrood. The real alternatives were never assessed. If they were, this 6.5 cent per kWh alternative would have been chosen. Navigant has been a consultant to the Province for years....I wonder what they will conclude after not biting the hand that feeds them. Time to stop the spending and call it quits. Or, call for a open tender to provide the necessary power and let the market decide what is cheaper.
