RE: Inuit rights and downstream impacts of the planned Muskrat Falls dam
Dear Premier Paul Davis, Mr. Dwight Ball, and Mr. Earle McCurdy,
Amnesty International is deeply concerned that the potential for the Muskrat Falls hydroelectric dam to cause serious harm to downstream Inuit communities has not been properly dealt with, as required both by Canadian law and international human rights standards. We are writing this letter to you in your capacities as party leaders because we believe this is a pressing human rights concern that, regardless of the outcome of the upcoming provincial election, requires action and vigilance from both the government and the entire legislative assembly.
