YOUR TURN: Oil Pipeline

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - This week's Your Turn segment goes to Brad Blanchard.

Blanchard took the time to comment on our Facebook page about a judge's ruling in favor of a company that wants to build a crude oil pipeline between Lake Charles and St. James Parish. Some people are opposed to the pipeline, but Blanchard and others think it's the best solution.

In his words:

The oil and gas business is here to stay and will outlive anyone who is able to read this message. Pipelines are a safe mode of transportation and are at far less risk of accident than other methods.

That's Brad Blanchard's turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, visit us on Facebook or send an email to
