On today's show, we hear some reaction to news from NALCOR about the impact of COVID-19 on the Muskrat Falls hydro project. Labrador MP Yvonne Jones weighs in on the conversation about the lack of local shrimp quotas for waters adjacent to the Inuit Land Claims Agreement. We also hear from Labrador's four MHAs about issues in their regions. The gas station in Rigolet will once again be run by the Inuit Community Government. But residents will still see an interruption in service starting tomorrow. The Nunatsiavut Government celebrates it's recent court victory after winning a legal dispute against the provincial government. We'll have the details of what it is and what it means. Scientists are using gliders to collect data along the North Coast of Labrador. It's part of a long term project to verify the consequences of climate change.

In Episode 53, we get to talk to Beatrice HUnter - an Inuk grandmother, warrior, and land defender. Beatrice was arrested and imprisoned in a men's jail for peacefully defending her territory from the Muskrat Falls hydroelectric megaproject and concerns over methylmercury contamination.

Beatrice's story is one of the most heartfelt and impactful ones I have ever heard. Please share it widely.

Here is the link for those who are able to make a financial donation to help pay the legal costs of land defenders who are still defending themselves in court 4 years later:

Do Canada's Dam Disasters Come In 3's? Muskrat Falls, Keeyask...Site C?

Play
Read more
Many things come in 3's. The 3 Musketeers. The 3 Stooges. 3 Blind Mice. 3 Ring Circus. Speak no evil, Hear no evil, See no evil.

Are the 3 disaster dams for Canada:
Muskrat Falls - Labrador's money-pit will finish at close to 100% overbudget, years behind schedule and will multiply by 5 the monthly bill of every NALCOR customer for who knows how long, maybe foreverKeeyask - Hydro Manitoba went "too big to fail" but ratepayers can cover what has years to go and has risen 40% in cost with less than 20% doneSite C - BC Hydro's boondoggle may likely cost more than $12 billion if completed, costing ratepayers for at least 70 years for who knows the total
Muskrat Falls nears completion as a Commission of Inquiry seeks why they got a white elephant at double the cost before generating a watt. Keeyask may be the most remote of the 3 and is a long way from generating power as its budget skyrockets at this early stage. Another 100% overrun is possible.

Many things make Site C different. The Clean Energy Act 2010 for one. There are openings for Horgan to reverse-Clark on BC Hydro. The much bigger economy of BC. But what is clear is Site C output would have no market now or the foreseeable future.

Norm Farrell of https://in-sights.ca and Grant G of https://powellriverpersuader.blogspot.ca/ join us to look at all 3, the similarities in risks and the big differences on Site C.
