    Oh you people... still back in the dark ages! Time to turn on the lights! This company wants to contribute 60 million towards the line. 800 hunderd good paying jobs at start up and 500 good paying jobs when completed. Do the math. How long before the government gets their money back? Not only Alderon needing the power!

    Have to agree with John Smith, something isn't right about this picture. as for the power line, let that company pay for it. or just go away.

    When the Upper Churchill deal was signed, the Twin Falls electricity generating station was mothballed as the Unknown river was diverted to run into the Smallwood Reservoir but the agreement reached with the development of the Upper Churchill was to maintain the Twin Falls facility in a state of readiness and to provide power to IOC at 0.4 cents a kilowatt far below what today's market price is. Now we are faced with subsidizing a transmission line from the Upper Churchill site to western Labrador to another company which talks in billions of dollars of investment but hasn't dug one spoonful of ore from the ground. Something is wrong here with this type of gun to your head negotiations where Alderon is practically threatening the provincial government if this power line isn't built.
