Crown corporation's application to be heard Tuesday in St. John's

Nalcor Energy has made an application to Muskrat Falls inquiry commissioner Richard LeBlanc to make a ruling on commercial sensitivity redactions in Grant Thornton’s forensic audit report on the project’s construction phase.

The report had been requested by commission co-counsel in December in an effort to assess whether it discloses sensitive information before its release to parties with standing at the inquiry.

After the crown corporation reviewed the report, it met with co-counsel but both sides were unable to reach an agreement on redactions.

Nalcor’s submission was made in two parts, one of which does not contain any material that Nalcor considers commercial sensitive and can be found on the Commission’s website.

Commissioner LeBlanc will hear the application on Tuesday, Jan. 22 at the Beothuck Building in St. John’s starting at 1 p.m.

The hearing will be broadcast on the Commission’s website and the hearing room will be open to the public, unless the Commissioner subsequently orders otherwise. Parties with standing have been invited to make submissions, either in writing or orally, in response to Nalcor’s application.
