Letter: Make voices heard about pipeline

Big oil, like big agribusiness, is in business to make money - big money.

Enbridge Energy already has a pipeline from North Dakota to Wisconsin. Now it wants another pipeline that will take a tortuous route through and around Hubbard County. They say “how wonderful” this will be - bringing a few jobs and more tax money.

These big companies are full of disinformation. They think if they say “more tax money” everyone (our county commissioners included) will overlook any environmental messes and the potential for disaster.

Now is the time to stop this project. The oil spill history of damage is not worth it. And remember, this goes across the young Mississippi River!

I encourage everyone to become informed about this and make our voices heard.
