Linda Godfrey, coordinator of Save Passamaquoddy 3-Nation Alliance announced,"Residents of Robbinston have joined our three-nation alliance as Save Passamaquoddy Bay - Robbinston. The community of St. Andrews, New Brunswick, is also mobilizing its anti-LNG efforts, and we are even more resolved to seeing that only appropriate, safe, and sustainable economic development occurs here." Coordinators of the Robbinston effort are Katherine and Richard Berry, Jim and Jean Nicholas, Jean Elsemore, and Carol Hollingdale.
Save Passamaquoddy Bay 3-Nation Alliance opposes Liquefied Natural Gas terminals and associated facilities in the Passamaquoddy Bay area. The alliance is composed of members of the Passamaquoddy Tribe, citizens of Canada, and citizens of the United States.
Save Passamaquoddy Bay Alliance also announced that, despite overtures from LNG developers, they have no interest in meeting with the two project's representatives. "No LNG terminals, no LNG ships, no LNG tanks, and no LNG pipelines in Passamaquoddy Bay," said Godfrey. "That has been our position from the outset, and it's our position now. We have no reason to meet with developers whose goals are to come here and threaten our lives and livelihoods, our culture, and our environment," Godfrey concluded.Top
