E/W Corridor ABCs

Letters
By LETTERS TO THE PORTLAND EDITOR  |  July 10, 2013

A) Referring to the proposed E/W Corridor as merely a "Highway" enables international corporations to place a Trojan Horse across Maine.

B) Those who allow this reference to perpetuate commit a great disservice by not promoting public awareness of the full nature of the long-term plans for this proposed project.

C) Unlike any such project before, this one seeks to secure the maximum rights-of-way from the onset.

A) The international right-of-way industry calls these state-of-the-art mega-projects "Corridor Farms."

B) The one proposed for Maine is a "CUT (Communication, Utility, and Transportation) Corridor," seeking to secure simultaneous rights-of-way to include a minimum of multiple revenue-generating entities.

C) The proposed E/W Corridor intentionally incorporates the right to include Communication: cables, fiber optics, and cell-towers; Utility (Electricity): high-tension wires, underground cables, and windmills, (Pipelines): fresh water, natural gas, and petroleum products; and Transportation: rail and road.

A) With the rise in terrorism, are these multiple entities extremely vulnerable by placing all our eggs in one basket?

B) The outright leases of these multiple right-of-ways, plus profits on their related products/commodities/services, make this proposed E/W Corridor a cash cow.

C) Now, what's in it for Mainers and our Pine Tree State?

Since investors know a Trojan Horse on a Corridor Farm is a cash cow, when will the conversation stop regurgitating the developer's "Highway" narrative and focus on the true nature and potential of this proposed E/W Corridor? Most importantly, what's the value of its impact upon Maine's resources and identity?

  •   DIAMON MISREADS MICHAUD  |  November 20, 2013
    Having read Al Diamon’s expression of preference for Paul LePage’s policies — although not his temperament — I was not surprised to see his criticism of Mike Michaud (see “Where Were You When I Needed You?,” November 15). But I was disappointed by its tone.
  •   AN EXPERIENCER WRITES  |  September 26, 2013
    I think it’s great that your paper took the time to cover the topic of extraterrestrial abductions and the Experiencers Speak event (see “Taken Up,” September 6, by Deirdre Fulton). However, I think it also helped to encourage disinformation about the subject and ridicule those that have had such experiences.

    I encourage all Mainers to urge Senators King and Collins to support the Climate Change Action Plan.
