Opponents of Enbridge Energy’s Line 3 vow to continue their fight in the courts as Enbridge announced its pipeline upgrade across northern Minnesota will be operational by tomorrow (Friday). Winona LaDuke with Honor the Earth says federal courts have consistently ruled against pipeline projects. She calls them “export pipelines for profits in the middle of a climate crisis.” Minnesota Republican state Representative Josh Heintzeman says opponents are not targeting only Line 3, but any pipeline improvement or construction project. Environmentalists warn that 760-thousand barrels of oil flowing through the pipeline every day pose significant risks to Minnesota’s rivers and clean water.
