    History repeating itself.

    So, forgive me if I am a little bit "stunned" but, if we get 4 cents and it costs in excess of 20 cents to produce it, someone has to pay, or will pay. That someone is, and can only ever be, the ratepayers of Newfoundland and Labrador. As the song from Buddywassisname goes, NAlCOR, Ed Martin, and the government must be "as stunned as me arse".....or is it the complacency of the people to let this happen? Great deal for Nova Scotia, great deal for Emera, great deal for NALCOR revenue.....but it really sucks to be a ratepayer in NL.

    Only in Newfoundland and Labrador would the taxpayers pay twice for their electricity, once to finance Muskrat Falls and the second to buy electricity at premium prices. While we sell it to Nova Scotia and local mining interests for below cost. In the immortal words of Danny Williams - This is Sum Good Deal Bye - now pass me my Nalcor kool-aid.

    For the Newfoundland consumer it is not win win, it is spin spin. Nova scotia gain is the NL ratepayers loss. Moral of the story, "you do not have to speak French to suck in those Newfies".

    While the massive cost of Muskrat Falls' unneeded power is a great risk to NL ratepayers/taxpayers and a great drain on our treasury, it may pale compared to the cost to us of this deal with Nova Scotia --- if the Water Management Agreement is found by the Quebec court to be in contravention of the 1969 Upper Churchill contract with Quebec. We would then find ourselves locked into a very long term power contract to deliver power that we do not have. NL ratepayers would then be forced to pay for the development of more power, buy power from Quebec to deliver to NS, and/or pay damages for any periods of non-delivery. UNBELIEVABLE (all so that Nalcor can justify Muskrat Falls and get a few pennies per KWh for power that we pay excessively for and that Nalcor thereby gets from us for free).
