DuBois LTE: Not a dumping ground or an extension cord

Bangor Daily News

I recently learned from the Natural Resources Council of Maine that an astounding 30 percent of waste going to our state-owned Juniper Ridge Landfill in Old Town is being sent up from other states like Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

Now, Central Maine Power is ripping up a portion of the western Maine forest, against the will of many of the local residents, so Massachusetts can import so-called “clean” energy from Hydro-Quebec.

Maine hasn’t been a colony of Massachusetts for more than 200 years. We aren’t their dumping ground and absolutely should not become their extension cord. Enough is enough. Vote yes this November to ban the CMP Corridor.
