HAPPY VALLEY-GOOSE BAY, N.L. —

The Muskrat Falls inquiry is holding public sessions are being held in the coming weeks for members of the public to share relevant information with the Commissioner as he prepares for his final report.

The public consultation process, managed by Memorial University’s Leslie Harris Centre of Regional Policy and Development, will include the two public sessions and an online submission form for individuals to submit comments and information to the Inquiry.

“As we work toward the final stage of the Inquiry, we wanted to give the general public the opportunity to share their thoughts about the project,” said Commission Co-Counsel Barry Learmonth in a release. “We recognize that there are people who have been following this project and the Inquiry, who may have some very valuable insights that would otherwise not be heard through the public hearings process.” The Harris Centre will provide a summary report of comments received at these sessions and through the online submission process.

The first session is being held in St. John’s on July 30 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., at the Emera Innovation Exchange, Signal Hill Campus, Memorial University of Newfoundland. The second is in Happy Valley-Goose Bay on August 8 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Lawrence O’Brien Arts Centre.

Online comments can be submitted until August 15.

Individuals wishing to speak publicly at the open sessions can register ahead of time, and may do so online or via telephone.
