NDP Leader Earle McCurdy stated that serious procedural issues at Muskrat Falls need to be resolved. Especially in light of the accident that occurred overnight, which caused workers to be briefly covered in wet concrete.

Seven workers received first aid treatment at the site in Labrador when formwork gave way, sending wet concrete pouring out.


“It was a major incident. This is not just a kind of well somebody got banged up a little bit and had to get a bit of first aid. This was much more serious than that. The people involved, I understand, were very shaken up by the whole thing. They had an extremely close call.”
McCurdy told the St. John’s Morning Show on Thursday.
