he Potomac Pipeline would be brought to you by TransCanada, the people behind the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline project. It would deliver fracked gas from the gaslands of Pennsylvania to industries that do not yet exist in W Virginia. MD would get nothing from the pipeline except the risk of pipeline explosions and increased contamination of the Potomac River from more fracking upstream in PA. Fracking itself is illegal in MD, so protesters were asking Gov Hogan to “Keep your fracking promise!” Looks like TransCanada’s fracked has pipeline is about as popular as the puppy-killing ways of Huntingdon Life Sciences(now Envigo) would be in MD. Both bring protesters to the homes of those responsible. Not suprising, as water poisoned by gas fracking can be a stomach-churning proposition in your cup, and your tap water is not supposed to catch on fire.

Ho Ho Ho -- I was at the party (with 58,000 other Vermonters) when Bernie Sanders Shut Down the Vermont Yankee Nuke Plant. Nice to have a seated US Senator protesting with you. We were all "In Your Face -- TransCanada.

Site has photographs and video on this nighttime visually beautiful protest.

Please note, comment, and forward.
