My story in today's Maine Sunday Telegram explores the proposed East-West Highway plan, a $2 billion private toll road connecting Calais/St.Stephen, NB with Coburn Gore and south-Central Quebec. At this writing, it's the most read story on the newspaper's website today.
As you'll see, whether the plan appears to be a good idea or not has a lot to do with your mind set and frame of reference.
There's also a companion story from my colleague Tux Turkel on why the highway's promoter, Cianbro head Peter Vigue, travels with bodyguards.
For fellow policy wonks, I'll be adding a few documents to this post when I have an extra few minutes this weekend.
[Update, 6/5/12: An update on the Quebec angle to this story.]
