Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Dwight Ball should start a forensic audit of Muskrat Falls and appoint an all-party committee of the legislature to examine the project, says potential PC party leadership candidate Ches Crosbie.

“I have consulted widely and found a consensus that there should be an immediate forensic audit, but also that the need for and scope of any public inquiry should be fully considered.” Crosbie said in a news release as he completes his “Connect With Crosbie” tour.

Crosbie said whether and when there is a public inquiry should be up to the consensus of an all-party committee of the legislature.

“Muskrat Falls issues are too important to the province to risk becoming a witch hunt orchestrated by one political party for partisan gain,” Crosbie said.

Former premier Brian Peckford recently called for an immediate forensic audit, and a public inquiry as necessary.

Crosbie as a lawyer represented breast cancer victims whose bungled test results to determine treatment were the subject of the Cameron Inquiry.

Crosbie said the pathology lab continued to operate without delay during that inquiry, “and the same should be true of Muskrat Falls.”
