ENBRIDGE

Latest Headlines
Nearly 800 of several thousand demonstrators were charged with crimes, most of them stemming from protests during last year's construction. About a fifth of the cases remain open.
The site near LaSalle Creek in Hubbard County is one of three places where crews installing the Enbridge-owned pipeline last year caused uncontrolled flows of groundwater.
"Despite attempts by people like Winona LaDuke to try to confuse, mislead or misrepresent, reality is something that thankfully cannot be ignored," says Thief River Falls Mayor Brian Holmer.
"There’s a pretty good argument to be made that Enbridge incentivized arresting people, including creating some new legal theories of theft. A half-dozen people were charged with felony theft for locking themselves to construction equipment, depriving Enbridge of its use. Hubbard County dismissed those charges."
A study shows during peak construction in 2021, Line 3 employment reached over 14,400 jobs and surpassed overall economic projections.
Roughly a thousand people were arrested during those actions. Some were charged with relatively serious crimes, including gross misdemeanors and felonies.

Landowners along Line 3 can submit comments to the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission until May 19 to request that eventual decommissioning costs are the responsibility of Enbridge.
Oil has been flowing through the completed pipeline for months now, but the White Earth Band of Ojibwe — Minnesota's largest Native American tribe with about 20,000 members — continues fighting the project in court, and through extraordinary surveillance efforts.
With the Enbridge’s Line 3 replacement project complete and newly christened Line 93, Hubbard County commissioners had questions about the old pipeline.
