Just when I think I haven’t got the energy (pardon the expression) to blog about NYRI, they makes another silly statement…
NYRI president Chris Thompson says he expects this type of “limited” opposition with any major project.
“Limited”? Just about the only thing the residents along the proposed line route haven’t done is to threaten to shoot at the pylons if they’re built.
The hearings taking place in various locations across the state are mostly a ritual. The last big hearing, when evidence is produced, is slated to take place some months from now in Albany. Mr. Thompson, who declines to come to Oneida County to be shown the areas that would be affected by the NYRI project, speaks of a “typical NIMBY response.”
