    Someone from NL Hydro needs to be taken to task on these outages. One thing I would like to know is why several power generating plants are out of service because they dont have have the parts to fix them? Maintenance on these started this summer, why were the parts not ordered and the work done before the winter season kicked in?

    Its all a conspiracy for the unneeded lower churchill project. The upper churchill is the 2nd largest hydro plant in Canada. Guess where all the power is going! And guess how good of a deal they are getting on our power. Do your research people. Before this is over hydro Quebec will own muskrat falls
