  1. Todd Russell talks out of both sides of his mouth. How can he agree that the promises were broken but the “spirit” of the agreement is still there. Weasel words to those of us who know what this us all about. It’s about money, jobs and a legacy for Mr Russell. Not about peoples lives and their loss of culture. Their loss of homes and property ! His words are scandalous to me and the people who still say “Shut Muskrat Down”. This boondoggle has made a fool of our Leaders. All of them

  3. Am I missing something here? Shouldn’t this have be all ironed out when the EIS (environmental impact statement) was done?
    Why was this project ever started before this was settled?
