Ed Martin and company should have resigned the next day. Total incompetency as were the PC government that put them there. Any private company would have them gone long ago. Now they are turning us back into debt because of Muskrat. And we allowed this, how stupid are we as Newfoundlanders?

So this means Mr. Martin and senior executives of Hydro will forego their bonuses this year and direct the money to refurbishing Holyrood. Bonuses are for performance!

How could anyone expect common sense to play ANY role in Nalcor's planning or any of their daily routines. They've already proven themselves to be insanely irresponsible and totally out of touch in their planning and promotion of the Muskrat Falls fiasco-- a mega project that no one needs.

Nalcor did not take its eye off the ball...... it was never on the ball (the right one, that is) in the first place --- and still not.

Mr. Martin is a politician trying to run a company. Inclement weather is the reason we need power in the first place, not an excuse for seeing generators fail. Everyone knows that during storms there will be power lines and transformers that will fail. They are out in the wind, rain, ice, and snow. That is far different than the generation side of things that failed because they weren't maintained properly, and no plan was implemented years ago to replace older equipment. Keeping equipment properly maintained is the mainstay of every single business in the world. I see the problem as a failure by TOP management to run the operation. A beer distributer just resigned from Nalcor's board. Why was he there in the first place? Mr. Martin's pink slip should have been issued as soon as there was enough power to print it. Lets demand from government that professionals be hired to run Nalcor.
