But it doesn’t have to. The difference between doing this $8 billion project wrong, and doing it right, starts with four simple, realistic and affordable changes to Muskrat Falls.

Our video tells our story.
Methylmercury is a dangerous poison that can cause neurological impairment in developing brains, particularly in cognitive thinking, attention, and memory. It accumulates in the food web, reaching higher and higher concentrations in fish, seals and other wild foods.
While methylmercury accumulates in Inuit territory, Inuit communities will see no benefits from Muskrat Falls. Despite high levels of energy insecurity along the Labrador Inuit coast, all of the power is being exported out of the region.

We need to make changes before the flooding starts. The recent federal election and current elections in Newfoundland and Labrador create an opportunity for change. Let our leaders know you want them to do Muskrat Falls right.
