Letter: There’s no method to the Muskrat Falls madness

Muskrat Falls — what can I say? It’s simply putting this province in an abyss of debt, but why? It makes no sense to me or anyone I know. Is the project being milked for all it’s worth, like a Jersey cow, at taxpayers’ expense?

Friends of mine had a fish processing plant burn to the ground a year ago around the bay, in Bay de Verde. Just a year after the fact, it’s up and running again — a state-of-the-art facility employing hundreds of hardworking Newfoundlanders. It’s one of a kind, perhaps the most sophisticated fish processing plant in the world.

It makes no sense to me or anyone I know.

Enough of the Muskrat Falls fiasco. Get ’er done, b’y!

Quinlan Group: good on ya.
