THE CMP CORRIDOR IS A BAD DEAL FOR MAINE!

This high impact transmission line will bring hydropower from Canada to Massachusetts, profiting international corporations.

WE CAN'T TRUST CMP:

• Ranked as worst utility in America by JD Power three years in a row

• Maine ranked last in nation for power reliability

• Placed under investigation/fined multiple times in the last few years

• Tells Mainers one thing while doing another...like running ads claiming a cut of 54’ when actually cutting on average 98’.

CMP'S CORRIDOR IS BAD FOR MAINE'S ENVIRONMENT:

• Maine’s most prominent environmental groups all agree that this project will cause

irreparable damage to Maine’s undeveloped forest without promised GHG benefits

• Fragments the last great forest east of the Mississippi River

• Even the Massachusetts attorney general agrees this project will not reduce carbon emissions

• CMP has repeatedly said this project is not about climate change

CMP'S CORRIDOR IS BAD FOR MAINE'S ECONOMY:

• Countless jobs in the biomass industry and related forest products industries put in jeopardy by the Corridor

• Corridor will destroy heritage fisheries and harm the regional tourism industry

• Will cost Maine-based renewables $400 million in the first 15 years of operation, jeopardizing hundreds of good paying jobs

• Creates an artificial reliance on foreign energy, exporting profits to Quebec and Spain.

CMP HAS SPENT MILLIONS TO SILENCE YOUR VOICE:

• CMP sued the State of Maine to block a statewide vote last year

• CMP has spent millions of dollars on propaganda and lawsuits, and it has forged ahead with construction, despite pending lawsuits and ahead of the statewide vote

• Hydro-Quebec, a government-owned corporation, has also spent more than $10 million to influence the outcome of this referendum - money they wouldn’t be allowed to spend on a similar effort in their own country!

Maine is NOT AN EXTENSION CORD for Massachusetts

Will you join us in voting YES on 1 to REJECT the CMP Corridor this November?
