I would like to thank Jackman, Maine, the home of my family, the Holdens, for opposing Central Maine Power’s proposed raping of our wilderness. There are five things I believe this project will accomplish. It will profit Canada. It will profit Massachusetts. It will profit CMP. It will open the door for the East-West Highway project. It will forever destroy millions of acres of Maine forests.

One thing it will never do is create lasting jobs.

I want to thank Jackman and all the Maine towns that have opposed CMP”s money-making scam.

If you do not like black flies, mosquitoes, moose, deer, bear, and dark nights with fireflies and loons singing across a wild pond, stay in the city. Please leave the wild land of Maine alone.

Edwin Morris
