Tick-Tock the Muskrat and Election Clock

Tick-Tock Tick-Tock goes the Muskrat Clock. Tick-Tock Tick-Tock goes the Election Clock.

Is Hydro-Quebec sitting back and waiting for a bankrupt project? Is the company watching the mess carefully? You know they are.

The Tories and their continued clinging to power and power are ruining this province and her people. The project is over-budget and delayed. Sadly - it may not be delayed enough.

We need some information quickly.

1. What is the cost of getting out of the Emera contract?
2. What is the REAL supply situation on the Island and what is the REAL industrial demand in Labrador?
3. How much exactly have we spent both already expended and contractually expended?
4. If we stopped the project now - what would be the cost?
5. If we continue what is the cost over 50 years?
6. Are we able to interest industrial customers in the Big Land?
7. What are the PC "protectors of natural resources" doing shipping raw - unprocessed ore?
8. Why should we accept and expect huge cost overruns?
9. Will the Tories commit to not signing any more deals on resource development until the next election?
10. Why are Newfoundlanders and Labradorians willing to work on a project that will harm their children and grandchildren?

Who are the real people behind this deal? Please name those Newfoundlanders and Labradorians who are becoming multi-millionaires either directly or indirectly from the Muskrat deal?

Why are their so many Emera utility trucks on our highways?

Why is Emera servicing any of Newfoundland and Labrador?

Why is Emera getting a piece of the light bill you and I will pay on the Island.

Why are Ed Martin and Gilbert Bennett still on our payroll? 

Wake-up everybody - we are being socially, economically, and voluntarily robbed of our natural wealth and the future wealth of our children.

All good questions. Who will answer?

Is it to spite Quebec?

Is it to save face?
