The province’s Consumer Advocate Dennis Browne says a public inquiry into Muskrat Falls is a must.
Browne told VOCMs Open Line with Paddy Daly, every government since 1964 found this route into Nova Scotia was too expensive, and shouldn’t be done.
“How we got here, how it was sanctioned, all has to be subject to a public inquiry. There’s no doubt about that,” said Browne.
He says it begs the question how the Muskrat Falls Project came to be.
At this stage, Browne says we need to focus on finishing the project before we can look at an inquiry.
He says it would be a mammoth inquiry, and to try and do it during the construction phase would not be practical.
