Passamaquoddy Tribe asked to stop development

The Passamaquoddy Tribe of Maine is running into opposition for plans to host a liquefied natural gas facility on its Pleasant Point Reservation.

Tribal members voted in favor of the $300 million facility. It would generate revenues and jobs, supporters say.

But a town in Canada doesn't like the idea. The St. Andrews, New Brunswick, council passed a proclamation urging the tribe to reconsider.

The LNG terminal would bring gas from Canada to the reservation then to points south.
