Muskrat Falls dominated debate in the province’s legislature today as MHAs took their first opportunity to debate the federal loan guarantee announcement on Friday in Labrador by Prime Minster Stephen Harper.
The term sheet which forms the basis of the guarantee has not been publicly released, but Natural Resources Minister Jerome Kennedy said it will be made public.
Liberal Leader Dwight Ball focused his questions on the details of the loan guarantee and whether Nova Scotia partner Emera can scuttle things by pulling out any time before 2014.
