I fail to understand provincial Liberal Leader Dwight Ball’s rationale for not supporting the Muskrat Falls project.
Ball says that we must have long-term power purchase agreements in the United States to make the Muskrat Falls project viable.
Why would we enter into long-term contracts for the sale of Muskrat Falls power when we could very well need that power for industrial development opportunities right here in Newfoundland and Labrador?
I had hoped that Ball would have been a more progressive leader. Instead, he appears to have that giveaway mentality that dominated governments in Newfoundland and Labrador for far too many years. Too much more of the same from that crowd.
