The inconsistencies alone that we observe practically every day coming from government should make us pause and question the wisdom of the Muskrat Falls project. Ed Martin said it and Danny Williams said it: “Muskrat Falls is the least-cost option for the province.”
When Danny’s own consultant group (BMT Fleet Technology) reported back to government that the Long Island Causeway was the least-cost option, Danny and his cabinet ignored that and went with the greatest cost option for the taxpayers of
this province and built a $38-million ferry.
Danny had several of what I call his “hissy fits” over the causeway issue, and if everyone don’t agree with him now on his desire for Muskrat Falls, stay tuned for another hissy fit.
The building of the Long Island Causeway, the least-cost option, instead of a new ferry — a big hole in the water that you throw your money into — is definitely a no-brainer, which Danny and now Kathy Dunderdale choose to ignore.
If you want to be taken seriously, Danny and Kathy, be consistent in your decisions when spending the taxpayers’ dollars.
