What about Holyrood, let's get those people to hate the aboriginals for getting special treatment in having their sea electrode grounding station moved. This is not for the courts to decide, the public will decide this. When have courts prevented an intentional industrial poisoning of the land for profits. The media does also seem to be spinning against the environment. As we put up with the engineered dissent of former premiers and strange challengers, we realize that they take the stage for this per pose alone: when we think about them, we don't think about our environment, we just get sick and lie down to cry.

Whoever wrote this editorial is either blissfully ignorant, or has a very slanted point of view. The Nunatsiavut are suing because their waters are still highly contaminated from the Upper Churchill, and the Lower Churchill will add massively to that. The mercury has gone into the fish, and the animals and birds that feed on the fish.The Nunatukavut are being treated the same. Ditto for the Quebec Innu. Accomodation requires action by the government in direct proportion to the seriousness of the impact on Aboriginal peoples. That is why they are suing. Oh, and by the way, there are four lawsuits in the courts regarding Muskrat Falls - not three. Bad editorial all around Telegram. Are your standards slipping?
