Atlantic Voice: The River

The Provincial Enquiry into the Muskrat Falls project is happening now in Newfoundland and Labrador. Its mandate is to investigate alleged mismanagement of the mega project's construction, cost overruns and whether the Government was fully informed and was made aware of risks with the Project. For many people in Labrador it may be too little - too late. On this week's edition of AV, the CBC's Kenny Sharpe introduces us to some of the protesters who've gone to jail to stop the Muskrat Falls mega project.
