E/W Corridor Part 3: Chris Buchanan interview with Regis Tremblay about the East-West Corridor


Regis Tremblay writes:

Part 3 in my series about the proposed East-West Highway is an extensive interview I conducted with Chris Buchanan. Chris is the organizer of a coalition to oppose the East-West Highway, more aptly called a “corridor,” as you will discover in this interview.

Chris explains the real motives and corporate incentives behind the hidden agenda of this corporate assault on the State of Maine, and explains the devastating consequences to the environment, wildlife, local communities, and our heritage.

You will also see clips of Peter Vigue, CEO of the Cianbro Corporation based in Pittsfield, Maine. Chris describes him as bullying his audience, somewhat paternalistic, and unwilling to listen to local citizens, farmers, and landowners. He appears stiff and condescending when people disagree with his grand vision. He promises prosperity for Maine – even quoting from Field of Dreams when he tells the locals, “if you build it they will come.” He adds, “if you don’t build it, they won’t come.” That will be a very good thing for Maine if they don’t come. “They” refers to the multinational corporations bent on extracting our resources and dominating the planet.

We can’t let this happen here in Maine. This is our opportunity to protect our state from this corporate pillage, and to stop the insidious, unsustainable, and suicidal onslaught of corporate greed.
