Posted on June 25, 2014 |
By John Madden



Concerning the Canadian Gaz Métro (VGS) proposed 12-inch, high-pressure (600 psi) gas transmission pipeline through Addison County:

Vermont law (30 V.S.A., Section 248(b)(5)) and common sense say that proposals that would be a threat to public health and safety are not in the public good.

Opinion: A haiku for the Public Service Board

Posted on June 23, 2014 |
