“Muskrat Falls on the fact that ratepayers have to pay for the electricity that is generated. If we were to run Muskrat Falls, people would not be able to pay their light bills.” – Kathy Dunderdale

PREMIER DUNDERDALE: Right now we have an obligation to consult outside of the Innu Nation, Mr. Speaker, and we are doing that. If the other groups are successful, especially NunatuKavut, in having a land claims recognized and their status recognized then the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador will recognize that as well.

Mr. Speaker, we are not running a line to the Coast of Labrador because, as you have stated, and based a lot of your arguments against Muskrat Falls on the fact that ratepayers have to pay for the electricity that is generated. The amount of electricity that is required in coastal Labrador is very small. If we were to run Muskrat Falls, people would not be able to pay their light bills.

Premier Kathy Dunderdale, December 5, 2012
