In the Shadow of the Dam; the failure of reconciliation at Muskrat Falls

On an early morning in late September, Denise Cole led a group of land protectors to Nalcor Energy’s head office in St. John’s to keep workers out – to send a message to the corporation and the province.

  1. The sad tale of Muskrat Falls is a cautionary one for BC ratepayers to consider. The BCUC has weighed in, determining Site C to be another boondoggle in the making.

    A contractor’s cheerleading club and a discredited “union” should get no consideration in the weighty political discussions around Site C. Robert McCullough, a U.S. energy economist hired by the Peace Valley Landowners Association, pointed out that the Allied Hydro Council and CLAC had a chance to weigh into the Site C investigation in submissions to the BCUC, but FAILED to make compelling arguments for the Site C dam continuing.

    $4 billion is just a part of the price BC voters will be paying for allowing Liberals to run amuck for 16 years. ICBC is another $billion in the hole. Suspicious contracts have awarded at least $1 billion excess profits to donor/contractors on public works projects. Experience is expensive. But Premier Horgan, only fools would throw more good money after the bad already sunk in costs at Site C.

  3. We’ve live on a ball of confusion for decades & now UN AGENDA 21/30 indoctrinated to believe what isn’t true with the loss of our common sense to be controlled by the UN’s NWO BRILLIANT IGNORANCE!

    After UN’s 1992 world climate summit world governments,education & media have worked 24/7/365 to take over our minds hearts & spirits to comply with ELITE NWO WANTS (after raping & pillaging us all for 250 years). RECONCILE WHAT! WHY! Us aboriginals have lost their ways so can never reconcile what we never had because we don’t know but if we ARE TOLD TO RECONCILE DUMB DOWN US WILL.

    DAM is better than nuclear energy (should be banned), maybe wind, solar makes sense but there is better than all of them but.
