“Our government welcomes opinions
from anybody and everybody…”
No matter what your view of the proposed Muskrat Falls Development, people have been utterly disappointed with Steve Kent’s performance during “On Point” over the weekend.
Kent’s mudslinging and smirks on the “On Point” panel infuriated me. It seems that it is impossible to have any dissenting voice against Muskrat falls unless there is a personal gain to be had by doing so.
Trying to sully the name of Richard Cashin, Cabot Martin and Ed Hearn specifically angered me. These people have worked to help the province and the people of this province, and just because they don’t agree with you it means it must be time to get out the dirt!
I hope that the people of this province can take the high road, no matter what you think of this project I hope people say, “I want this to live or die based on merit”.
I for one am thankful that there is a new group in 2041 that is willing to come out and say what the problems with this project are. I am glad that they have the knowledge, expertise and resources to make some noise and hold the government’s feet to the fire.
When I first learned about this project I was very supportive. As time went by, I learned more and I started to worry. This performance by Kent makes me even more worried for our future. I know that debate around this project is polarizing, but honestly with something this big and this important we need to stop and look at the facts.
I hope to God that for once in our history we can do this, that we can put political leanings aside as a people and do what’s best for us.
If information comes out that proves that Muskrat is the best option in the long run, then I will be supportive. However, until the PUB can do a full study and all the information that has been requested is made public, it’ll be hard to sway me.
This is why we need 2041 and need a strong opposition. The information needs to be brought to light even though the government will be kicking and screaming the whole time it is happening.
If you are a proponent of this project, don’t let the tone of Kent and other government MHA’s be good enough. If you believe in this then show me the facts, the numbers, and why the alternatives aren’t the answer.
Let the facts speak for themselves and leave this school yard level nonsense stay in the playground.
