Perhaps Some Sanity II
I had no sooner complimented the new Government in St. John’s on the appointment of Stan Marshall as President of the troubled energy corporation than one has to scratch ones head on the appointment of the interim Board for this corporation: a private sector lawyer, a public sector lawyer deputy minister, another deputy minister , and an academic who is already been involved with the corporation. .
None have any qualifications that I can see as it relates to large energy projects let alone hydro projects .
Everyone knows ( there now has been a number of national stories) that the Muskrat Hydro Project is in crisis mode . The Ernest Young interim report proves that.
I think we all thought that with the Marshall appointment we could reasonably expect that what would follow would be appointments that would be consistent with this first one . Some expertise , some experts who could support Marshall. No such luck !
And this business of interim because of this new , promised appointments commission ,though we’ll meaning , is meant for normal times, regular business .
These ‘ain’t ‘ regular times, I submit . This ‘ain’t regular business.
