  1. this all appears like “bribes” to gain public support and reduce resistance to the pipelines…

    Pipelines have been giving grants for years now…

    doesn’t seem to deter increasing citizen resistance to high-pressure, ever growing abundance of pipelines that are being proposed next to our schools, homes, farms and businesses….

    Pipeline companies need a new strategy…

  2. WOW !!! What a pathetic response. Companies do something good for children and people like Vera whine about it. Shows what kind of people we are dealing with here. Of course we should expect nothing less from her wickedness.
