“And given that they've had their wings clipped
a little bit, in terms of the time that they've had
to review the project, I think some of that sway
has been undermined or been taken away from them.”
Former Natural Resources Minister
|ON-POINT WITH DAVID COCHRANE|
The former Natural Resources Minister told the CBC's On-Point with David Cochrane that the Public Utilities Board review on the proposed Muskrat Falls project has been undermined by the Dunderdale government.
Premier Dunderdale refused to give the board a second extension, and she has refused to allow her own members to participate in a debate on the project in the House of Assembly.
The government also restricted the PUB and Manitoba Hydro International from looking at other energy options like Natural Gas.
It will be interesting to see if the premier shrugs off Skinner's concern. She certainly can't dismiss her former Natural Resource's Minister like she has so many others including former Premier Brian Peckford and Cabot Martin, a former PC policy advisor during the 1980s, who both told the PUB that the review process has been rushed.
