    Sometimes Premier Dunderdale you have a problem dealing with the truth and the facts as is the case here. DEAL WITH IT. Thats why Danny left you this mess before he bailed out.

    I agree with Peckford. If this deal happens "have" will be no more. How can Dunderdale keep trying to sell this?

    Sprung Greenhouse is this former premiers legacy. For someone who doesn't live here anymore he sure seems to think he matters. Strange how everyones who is against this are all of sudden experts. I believe nothing out of Peckfords mouth as this is the same guy who tried to sell us cucumbers for 20 or 20 million dollars. Just go away.

    Tory response is always smear the other side. Muskrat Falls is the Sprung Greenhouse version of the Upper Churchill. It has to be stopped!! Even Tories thinks so.

    Brian Peckford should be listened to on this matter. The risks of this project are steering us in the face for those of us who are not too blind to see. Only those connected to the project, ex and present politicians are gung hoo on ramming it through. For you critics who bring up the Sprung fiasco, yes that was a $25 Million dollar boo boo, but the risky Muskrat Falls Project could put us in debt $10 Billion. Please, you who bring up Sprung boo boo, think before you open your mouth. You all appear to not to have a brain cell to compare the two entities.

    I have many questions about MF project, but I know I would not rely on a loudmouth like Peckford to influence my support for MF. He knows about MJ project about as much as he knew about the CUCUMBER industry in NL. I read the above article but did and will not read Peckford's letter; he know nothing about MF and NL. Peckford... stick that big fat cigar back in your mouth; maybe paid by NL taxpayers?

    I guess Cabot Martin, Ron Penney and Peckford must have recently had a cabinet meeting for old times sake. They seem to be all talking from the same song book. Maybe if Peckford cared abt the Province he would have stuck around. Wonder how things are in BC these days?

    It appears that Peckford is still a legend in his own mind! The same attitude and arrogance that lead to his eventual downfall is still prevalent in his opinions.'The fact that all of the Due Diligence and debate is ongoing and the review of The PUB and Manitoba Hydro apparently is not sufficient for him to give his "blessing" to this project!! Good riddens to him as we "have not" got to listen to him any more!! Pony Man

    My 1st question to Peckford would be who would he consider to be experts? Would it be engineers at Nalcor who have studied this for yrs, employees at Manitoba Hydro with yrs of experience, or people like Danny Dumeresque(who have all the say but no expertise in the field)? According to the nay sayers there are no experts, except themselves. No matter what anyone says some will not agree. Let's either get the project started now or scrap it altogether and let the chips fall where they may.

    The problem with the Muskrat project is how can we compete with Hydro Quebec in selling power on the mainland when they are developing Romaine River Hydro for sale in the same market with what appears to be about one quarter to one third the price. It will require significant subsidy from the oil revenues combined with substantial increase in our electricity rates to compensate. Proceed with caution to make sure we are not sold down the river.

    Our Brian, he'll go far. Not far enough apparently.

    I have no idea if MF's is the best deal or not for the Province. I am still listening to all the information. But i am not sure Brian Peckford is the best guy to listen to either. Anybody remember the Cucumber fiasco?

      Ad hominem attacks aside, the former premier's comments should be judged on their own merit - not upon what happened 25 years ago.

    Now i know why Ms. Dunderdale is silent on many issues - because when she opens her mouth she puts her foot in it. "If he has fundamental questions, or issues to raise, or an analysis to provide to show where we’re flawed in our thinking, or where there are gaps, then you know I’d be happy to hear him." No, Ms. Dunderdale you wouldn''t - you just heard them and ignored them.

    Let he who has not sinned throw the first stone. I think we should question the validity of this project and the task that was given to the PUB. We all know Brian Peckford has skeleton's in his closet (Sprung) but to what benefit is it for him to come out and question this governments "do it no matter what" stance. You can bet if he is right in his letter that this government will blame it on the PUB and not themselves for their shortcomings. Food for thought!

    I have not made up my mind yet about Mushrat falls ..whether it's a good idea or not....but Brian Peckford having the gaul to give us advice !!! The man who brought us the Sprung Greenhouse fiasco. Stay out in BC , be quiet and grow your own cucumbers please......we had enough of you. It's almost enough for me to say that if he does not like it then it must be a good thing !

    Too bad this administration seems to have a closed mind when it comes to Muskrat Falls.I do not know whether it is a good deal or not but I do know that it is advisable to proceed with caution. This is a big project with big and long lasting implications. Take your time Premier, proceed with caution and be sure of what u are doing. The risks are too big to make a mistake.

      Has there ever been an administration that didn't have a closed mind.

    Whether this is a good project or not, Dunderdale is going to make it happen. I would also like more information on the sales aspect when it is completed but these details are sketchy at best. Muskrat Falls is going to happen - good for the province or not.
