I have not spent any time following this specific issue and thus have no opinion on the merits of their grievances. Being pretty much every pipeline or energy or water project meets fierce resistance no matter where or what it is, I wonder if we are going to reach the point where we regret not allowing our infrastructure and energy capacity to grow in sync with the population and economy.
Here everyone supports renewable energy and clean energy but every single solar, wind, or water project is fiercely fought as is every pipeline and every power line bringing hydro-generated power down from Quebec. It is always deemed to be the wrong location or the wrong design or the wrong size or the wrong type. Yet there would be outrage if the lights didn’t come on when they flick the switch.
