Inquiry testimony touches on topics with detailed history

The Muskrat Falls hydro project involves a lot of different sub-topics, each with their own context, history and ongoing debate.

On any given day, testimony at the related Inquiry is touching on multiple topics, covering years and sometimes decades.

It involves changing legislation, policy and attitudes. It means years of news stories, columns, editorials and letters to the editor.
