Newfoundland and Labrador's premier says if Quebec wants a new hydro deal then the province needs to "show us the money!"
Andrew Furey made the comments today at the conference of New England governors and Eastern Canadian premiers, in Quebec City.
Furey says Quebec needs to pay up if it wants to continue buying hydroelectric power from Labrador's Churchill Falls Generating Station when the existing agreement ends in 2041.
The agreement from 1969 has earned Quebec more than $28 billion but only $2 billion for Newfoundland and Labrador.
Quebec Premier François Legault has said that he understands the anger among Newfoundland and Labrador residents, and has floated the idea of offering financial compensation to the province before 2041.
Furey says the deal has been "punishing" for his province and that an apology he received from Legault has helped set the stage for the new negotiations.
