A Labrador scientist is taking issue with research into the cause of flooding at Mud Lake.
Robert Way — a postdoctoral fellow in physical geography who grew up on the Churchill River riverbank and now works out of Memorial University’s Labrador Institute — says he doesn’t believe the people behind the study were given enough data to rule out Muskrat Falls as a contributing factor.
“The current state of monitoring [on the river] is actually quite poor,” he said.
