CORNER BROOK — A critic of the process involved in deciding the fate of the Muskrat Falls project says he was surprised to have been singled out by Natural Resources Minister Jerome Kennedy when the minister spoke at a public function in Corner Brook last week. …”It’s almost as if some of these critics want Corner Brook Pulp and Paper to close down so they can say, ‘I told you Muskrat Falls is not needed,’” Kennedy went on to say. Vardy, who was the province’s chief negotiator when Kruger bought the Corner Brook mill from Bowaters in 1984, took exception to the implication he wanted to see the Corner Brook mill fail.
