    Sorry for the cynicism, but I smell a gas leak.

    A company like Union Gas doesn’t donate money to an organization like Quinte Conservation unless they have done or are about to do something very damaging.

    Hint: Union Gas just applied to the County for a noise by-law exemption permit while they bury a gas pipeline under the Bay of Quinte.
