Confederation's 'greatest failure'

The defunct weekly provincial newspaper, The Independent (2004-2008), carried out extensive research and investigation into the Upper Churchill. From the contract’s signing in the late 1960s, to the realization of its incredible lopsided nature towards Quebec, the shadow of the deal looms today over the potential development of Labrador’s Muskrat Falls. The following are a series of 12 articles published in The Independent

It is clear that the so called deal to develop the upper Churchill Falls Power was under handed what kind of contract could be called a fair and just contract that would equally benefit both parties, that has paid Quebec over$100, BILLION Dollars for its share of the sale of power sold ! to NEWFOUNDLANDS $ 1,BILLION Dollars ! 1% of the INCOME ! TO QUEBEC $100,BILLION ? THIS IS HIGHWAY ROBBERY ! NOT A CONTRACT THAT IS SUPPOSE TO BE FAIR AND EQUAL TO BOTH SIDES ?
