Why is there even a PUB. Might as well throw Andy Wells and his $185K per year job walking papers and let Kathy and her cronies make all the utility decisions.

sounds good to me. Cutting out employees is always a good way to increase profit and efficiency.

Today is the day, and I hope, this premier has the courage to stand up for this Province and admitts that this project is to huge for the population of our province. Kathy don't be afraid to stand up to Harper, Nalcor and Emera, you know deep down that this project is not for the good of our people. Please help yourself to get back the respect that you deserve.

Even if she know the project is flawed, she will not admit anything because her supporters ( the people who voted her into her job) are MF supporters. I am a MF supporter and I voted for her. IF she speaks against MF, she will have lost my vote. Take me for example. I know that there are some flaws with MF that could end up causing hardship to some citizens, but I stand to benefit from MF so I will not stand up and say anything. Not because I lack courage, but because the recent developments are consistent with my self interests.

Her children and grandchildren have to live with the shame of her arrogance long after she is gone. I pity them.

Hopefully the stand-in premier will also announce her resignation today.

Don't listen to them Dunderdale, haters gonna hate.

with all the money the municipalities are raking in maybe the federation of municipalities can finance the project!

This is a capital project with a high initial cost but it will provide electricity to the province forever and will remove our dependence on fossil fuels - oil or otherwise.

Perhaps the Premier will announce a slow down of sanctioning MF as Kennedy suggested in the House last week? Perhaps her open mindness will surprise everyone , even me.

With all the tax revenue the municipal governments are raking in, the federation of municipalties should be able to guarantee the loan.......

Canada's 35 million people know that $45 billion for fighter jets over 40 years is unaffordable. NL's 250,000 ratepayers will pay $35 billion for unneeded Muskrat Falls power over 50 years. Priceless. Why isn't the media focusing on these 'life-cycle' costs instead of the so-called $6.2 billion cost?
- December 17, 2012 - 08:37
Nearly a $1 billion deficit, $100 million clean-up bill, high base price of oil in budget, any cost overruns are covered by Nalcor 100% (and not even some by Emera). And people still wonder why they call her Dunderfail or Blunderdale...

Aw shucks; just when I thought Premier Kranky Blunderfest was going to announce some good news: that she was planning to ask the Speaker to dissolve the House and prorogue the assembly due to total incompetence. In 2004, then Premier Dictator Dan announced an $800M deficit; now, Finance Minister of the Clown Marshall fesses up to a similar $725M deficit; this after 8 years of unprecedented revenues and wealth. How much of this Tory ineptness and incompetence can we take? Are we still this gulible in NL?

Let's get on with it Premier. The thing has been review to death. My 3 and 7 year old grandsons are looking forward to working and living in Newfoundland.
- December 17, 2012 - 09:56
We'll need them and a lot more like 'em to pay Muskrat's bills. Today is a dark day f'er we...and those kids.
- December 17, 2012 - 08:21
maybe we should sanction the mha's right out of office. they made fools out of taxpayers when they expropriated the resources from abitibi-bowater, costing us a $100 million dollar cleanup bill. time to go to the people in a referendum to resolve this muskrat falls BS before these overpayed politicians screwup, costing us more.
- December 17, 2012 - 08:05
Kathy's expected to "sanction" the Muskrat Falls project??? This is news? If she hadn't been so busy downplaying the many concerns of the taxpayers and the opposition these past few months, she'd have been up in Labrador running a backhoe herself.
