I went to the bank the other day, armed with a new business plan. I wanted to start a new business. Oh, they said, and what might that be? I want to set up a business with a new hydro generating plant.
Oh, they said, do you have any customers? No, but I hope to have some in a few years. You’re kidding, they said. Get out!
It seems our government is so hell-bent on plowing this project through the House of Assembly that they have all lost their minds. Jerome Kennedy says we have a term paper, signed by Stephen Harper himself. Term paper? Hmm, isn’t that what my grandkids get in school before final exams? Yes, but we will get an improved version once all the lawyers are paid their millions. Seems Quebec is not happy with this. Not an issue. This is a typical political monkeywrench thrown in to confuse the issue. Quebec is not an issue here.
This is our taxpayers’ money they are spending here. Our future. Don't they know that? When Churchill Falls is unhooked from “the contract,”
we will have all the power we need. Instead, they are planning a farty little hydro project that will cost of billions of dollars. Have they gone mad?
We don’t have any sales contracts, and even if they did, I bet, just bet, that our children and grandchildren will be paying through their eye teeth for generations to come. But how about the power calculator? Now let’s get real. Who are they kidding here?
Seems natural gas wasn’t studied with enough depth to qualify for a chance to solve this, because our tunnel-vision government is fixated on oil. Let’s get a decent study on the natural gas issue. Cleaner than oil.
It will never be soon enough to get rid of this tunnel-vision government.
