No CMP Corridor Response to Supreme Court Ruling

FARMINGTON - “It’s a very sad day when Maine’s highest court sides with foreign corporations over the people of Maine,” said Sandi Howard. “The fact that CMP’s parent company sued the state of Maine to silence their customers, and it worked, is astounding. Mainers feel very strongly that this project will do irreparable damage to our natural resources, hurt rural Maine’s economy and threaten our way of life. That’s why hundreds of residents stood outside, during the height of the winter, to collect signatures from more than 66,000 voters who want the opportunity to weigh in on this deeply unpopular project.

“We are weighing all our options (legal, political and legislative) on how to best proceed, but I promise you, this fight is far from over,” she continued.

“No CMP Corridor, and our army of volunteers, will not rest until we stop this for-profit project once and for all.”
