Whatever they have to tell themselves (II)

Our Dear Premier, in paraphrased conservation with a Quebec-based newspaper:

Williams said reaching the tentative New Dawn agreement with the Labrador Innu in September brings the province one step closer to making the project a reality.
Mr. Kelly, in the Bow-Wow Parliament:

MR. KELLY: Agreement with the Innu means the Lower Churchill development is in full steam ahead with lots of momentum, Mr. Speaker.
ODP, in his year-end interview with CBC Here and Now, speaking of the so-called Lower Churchill development:

2009, 2010, it could be a year either way... if it's going to happen, it'll happen.
In Our Dear Speech from the Throne in 2007, We were quite definitive:
Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro already developed, on My Government’s behalf, a comprehensive Lower Churchill project execution plan to achieve a project sanction date by 2009 and first power by 2015.
In 2008? Not so much:
My Government will build on the other outstanding successes of 2007 in the coming year by advancing a broad array of energy initiatives that will include:
progressing the Lower Churchill project development plan toward project sanction and first power
This corner's prediction?

"Project sanction" will, for a variety of reasons, be delayed until the next election year.

And the project so sanctioned will still not get built.

You have it absolutely right! The Lower Churchill will not be developed by this government. Too many factors prevent it, not the least of which is the near impossibility of getting the power to market in a way that doesn't involve choking on crow.
