Members of the Labrador Land Protectors group say a United Nations representative was receptive to their concerns about Muskrat Falls — but the grand chief of the Innu Nation says they should have been consulted too.
Baskut Tuncak, UN special rapporteur on human rights and hazardous substances and wastes, spoke via video chat with members of the group, who prepared a 10-page document on their concerns over the controversial hydroelectric project, and potential methylmercury contamination.
