Last week the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission (PUC) made their decision on the Line 3 Pipeline. Unfortunately, the PUC basically granted Enbridge everything they wanted: they get to build their new, bigger pipeline, they get to do it in their new, destructive corridor, and they don’t have to clean up the old pipeline. You can read more about the decision from Winona La Duke’s article in Indian Country News here.
Groups across Wisconsin recognized how devastating the decision was. Here is the press release from many groups in Wisconsin.
Landowners in Columbia County and Jefferson County responded to the decision also. Read their press releases here.
