    Mr Russell Wangersky Editor of The Telegram St John’s, Newfoundland Reference: December 24, 2013 Your Article: Clear as Mud. Because of the 1999 Shareholder’s agreement, Hydro-Quebec will be able to extend the Churchill Falls contract beyond 2041…..Churchill Falls Contract will be probably extended for ever ! Because of Water Management Rights, Nalcor will never be able to operate efficiently the Muskrat Falls Power plant. So, there is only one way to clean up the MUD: Documents such as 1969 Churchill Falls Contract, the GWAC, the 1999 Shareholder’s agreement, the Water Management rights have to be cancelled. At least, it has to be revised and rewritten. Politely, respectfully, peacefully….! Newfoundlanders, all together, should tell Mrs. Pauline Marois, Premier of Quebec, that if it is not done within next few months, Churchill Falls might stop giving barely free energy to Hydro-Québec. That is the only one way to clean up the Mud. Lucien Beauregard, P.Eng Sainte Julie, Quebec.

    I hate to be a Scrooge during the Christmas season but it looks like the provincial government is acting like the Grinch. Unlike the Grinch, however, I see no sign of repentance when it comes to their realization of the damage they will do to the economy and to consumers in NL. All Orders-in-Council like this one are designed to circumvent the function of the House of Assembly and seemed timed for release AFTER the closure of the HOA. Not much opportunity there for the Opposition to question the intent and nature of these OIC's. Written in " legalise" they are anything but transparent and not open to any real scrutiny, given the time of their release. So much for openness and transparency!!

    Bloody control freaks. If I had my way the whole cabinet would be under lock & key...at HMP. Just an opinion.

    And I am sure that the MHAs that voted for Muskrat Falls all fully grasp and understand what it is they have gotten NL rate/taxpayers into. All of this high cost, complex legalese is designed (not to protect ratepayers) but to protect the corporate entities who will be the principle beneficiaries of our resources --- and at a tremendous cost to NL rate/taxpayers, their children and grandchildren --- for decades to come. How can we have allowed this to happen, after our 40 year blunder with the Upper Churchill? This could not happen in a mature democracy.
