“The history books will show that this government understood risk, mitigated risk, saw a project, saw an opportunity, and said: for our children and our children’s children, we are moving ahead on this project.” – Susan Sullivan

Mr. Speaker, I believe history is going to say: what a turning point for Newfoundland and Labrador when Muskrat Falls was sanctioned, when this was powered up, and when this particular project took root. I believe the history books will show that this government understood risk, mitigated risk, saw a project, saw an opportunity, and said: for our children and our children’s children, we are moving ahead on this project. I believe that is what the history books will show.

They will show that the Premier who was at the helm of this had the vision, had the tenacity, had the steadfastness to keep the project moving, Mr. Speaker. She refused to back down from anybody and instead stood her ground, and we now have what we need to move this project forward.

Susan Sullivan, Minister of Health and Community Services, December 3rd, 2012
