Petitions to stop the North Pass

October 22, 2011 - East Heraford, Quebec

Opposition to the proposed North Pass project is continuing.

Nearly 5-thousand signed petitions were hung up on the Beloin Pariseau farm in East Hereford, Quebec. The entire display spread out over the size of about 11 footballs fields. The North Pass Project, which aims to run 180-miles of transmission lines from Canada to the New England grid has met stiff opposition.

There are fears the project will have an negative impact on the region's tourism economy.
