    What are we heading for this time? The cliff!

    My comment re Bill 61 seems to have been in error, as when (b) is read in concert with the rest of the amended section it does indeed appear that energy generation by industrial customers, even for its own use, is prohibited.

    Bill 61 states "(b) a retailer or an industrial customer shall purchase electrical power or energy exclusively from Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro in respect of the business or operations of that retailer or industrial customer on the island portion of the province."......Depending on how that is read, and while it is correct to say that retail or industrial customers must "purchase" electrical power or energy "exclusively" from (that is, from no one else other than) NL Hydro ----- "purchasing" is not the same as as creating and using electrical energy and using it (not 'purchasing') it for your own needs........ So it seems that there may be nothing to stop an oil refinery, a paper mill, or a nickel refinery from creating its own electrical power or energy (from wind or natural gas) and using the power or energy created (but not 'purchased') for its own use. -------What would that do to the viability of this Muskrat Madness?

    The answer is quite simple: Shut up and stop asking so many questions.
