Oh they talked real big about jobs and actually caring about the communities they are located in, you know, the usual PR bullshit that companies like Spectra employ to seem like they are a great part of the community nevermind the dangerous gas pipeline they are preparing to lay under our homes and through our neighborhoods. And if things go south, you wait and see how long it takes Spectra to lawyer up.
Want more proof they really don't care about anything other than money? Liberty Humane Society, located on Jersey City Boulevard outside Liberty State Park, may be forced to move. Yep, because Spectra has filed for eminent domain hearings to seize the property that includes the property for the dog run which Liberty Humane Society needs to remain in compliance.
Nice huh? Did Spectra, you know the company who really cares about the communities they work and profit and endanger residents in, offer to build a new Liberty Humane Society? No. Did they have an alternate plan? No. They just demand the land and the pooches and kitties be damned.
Spectra does not care. If you think otherwise what color is the sky in your world? Yeah, like BP really really cared about the Gulf coast.
We're giving the last word this morning to our mayor, who has been vocal and out front in his opposition to the Spectra pipeline (and we sincerely thank him for this):
“We have been saying for more than two years now how the proposed Spectra pipeline poses a serious public safety and health risk,” Jersey City Mayor Jerramiah Healy said. “Now with one of their first site visits in Jersey City, the energy company has proven our point and shown a total lack of concern for our city and the animals living at the Liberty Humane Society.”
