Opinion: Let’s use our common sense and oppose the pipeline

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.
Google “explosions of natural gas transmission pipelines” for pictures and record of that potential harm to Vermont and Vermonters.
Given that the Public Service Board approval of Phase 1 of the pipeline proposal is a violation of Vermont law and oath of office, then the Certificate of Public Good for Phase 1 is not a “done deal.”
Why should Vermont lives and property be sacrificed for cheap fuel from Canada?
If you would like to help prevent that, read the documentation and what Vermonters can do that is in a file folder in the town clerk’s office for public view in Colchester, Essex, Williston, St. George, Hinesburg, Monkton, New Haven, Bristol, Middlebury, Cornwall and Shoreham.
