In the next few weeks there is a lot happening where you can ask questions and take action on the TransCanada pipeline. While TransCanada continues their misinformation campaign about the merits of the pipeline, we continue to mobilize folks. In Nebraska, we want to protect our land, water and economic activity.
We might not have the millions TransCanada has, but we have all of you!
