Enbridge has successfully completed its Line 3 replacement project, announcing Wednesday that the pipeline will begin operations on Friday, Oct. 1.
Replacement construction on Line 3 began more than seven years ago, according to Reuters, with the project costing $8.2 billion altogether. The replaced pipeline will transport more oil from Canada through North Dakota, Minnesota, and Wisconsin than it had previously transported due to its “age and corrosion.”
Minnesota Democrat Governor Tim Walz just had his annual forum at the University of Minnesota, and he was shouted down by leftwing protestors. The protestors held signs about the evils of oil, and were protesting the Enbridge Line 3 pipeline. Walz assured the protestors that he was doing all he could to “fight climate change.”
A legal group has filed a lawsuit against “eco-terrorists” who caused more than $100,000 in damage to the equipment of a Minnesota-based family logging company.
