A decades-long quest to change the terms of the Churchill Falls deal was rejected last week in a Quebec court, and the case now looks like it's heading for an appeal.

Nalcor CEO Ed Martin said the company disagrees with the court's decision, and there were points that were not addressed during the time the case was in court.

Martin added there is too much value at stake not to pursue it further in court.

Also on On Point this week, Michael Karanicolas is with a group that vocally criticized Newfoundland and Labrador's controversial Bill 29.

Karanicolas, who is a legal officer with the Centre for Law and Democracy, presented recommendations for changes to the province's access to information policies.
