Nothing Could Be Further From The Truth (I)

Kathy Dunderdale misinforms the House on Tuesday:
Mr. Speaker, Menihek is an isolated system that was owned in Quebec. It produces about eighteen megawatts of power and when they wanted to get out of the power business they came to Nalcor and said will you buy this plant? We will sell it to you for a $1. Not only that, we will cover all of your capital costs. We will cover all your operational costs. We just want you to operate it for us. Nalcor said yes because it does not cost us a cent. We have made $2 million a year off that since we have done it.
Ummm... Menihek is an isolated system that was owned — and is still owned — in Labrador.

It was neither owned in Quebec, nor, giving KD possible credit for mis-speaking, by Quebec. Its previous owner was the Iron Ore Company of Canada.

Perhaps at a future date — most likely after the provincial election, at the rate things are going — the opposition will ask the more important question: why was the Menihek deal kept secret for so long, if it is such a super-de-duper one?
