|The Irving Empire in its bid to generate its own
electrical power utilizing gas from Sable Island will set the stage to allow them to duck
a + 3 billion debt. The debt was incurred by the power commission on ratepayers in
the province through the development of the Point Lepreau Nuclear Power plant and other
generating stations. The Irvings presently consume ~ 30% of the electrical power in
the province and have benefited enormously from the construction of the Nuclear Plant.
NB Power like the collapsing sister utility, Ontario Hydro will then be a sitting
duck for a rumored take over of ailing reactors by U.S. interests whereby US
Plutonium would be processed at Lepreau.
Bravo! New Brunswick will then become Canada's leading Nuclear Waste dump and in doing so serve to keep the power commission solvent. Be that as it may, If the Irvings duck their responsibility do you suppose for a minute that the rest of us can duck ours? Not that we should of course.
Politicians, where are you? Please speak and act on this issue. If our members don't then new parties should be proposed that could reinstate a political and economic democracy made to serve people not corporate ends. Who knows the very structure of our "democracies' may be at fault??
