Abstract

The town of Perry, on the Passamaquoddy Bay, is at the center of a debate over a proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal, which some say could revitalize the economically depressed area. Perry residents rejected a proposal for a terminal on land owned by the Passamaquoddy Tribe but which was subject to Perry residents' approval if developed. The tribal government now wants Oklahoma-based Quoddy Bay LLC to construct the terminal at Split Rock, where the town of Perry has no jurisdiction. The group, Save Passamaquoddy Bay, is spearheading the anti-LNG movement. With details on how some residents find creative ways to make a living without the bolster of large-scale employment.
