St. John's, Labrador (II)

From the Telegram, James Tarrant reporting on the latest blunder by Open and Accountable Administration:
On May 20 Hydro held a methyl mercury information session with local groups. During this meeting, it was decided by Hydro, that an "alternatives" workshop would take place in St. John's on May 24. However, no such meeting, was scheduled in Labrador at that time.

The decision was later changed when residents in Happy Valley-Goose Bay and Mud Lake, felt residents who are going to feel the brunt of this project, should also be entitled to a meeting to discuss alternative approaches.

To compensate for the mistake, Hydro postponed its St. John's workshop on May 24 and rescheduled it for June 3 in Happy Valley-Goose Bay.

Labrador residents were only told of the rescheduled meeting on the morning of May 29.
