Opponents of Line 3 vow to continue their fight in the courts as Enbridge announced its pipeline upgrade across northern Minnesota will be operational by tomorrow (Fri).  Winona LaDuke with Honor the Earth says:

“Federal courts have consistently ruled against pipeline projects….  These are export pipelines for profits in the middle of a climate crisis.”

Republican state Representative Josh Heintzeman from Nisswa says opponents are not targeting only Line 3:

“It’s not just this particular pipeline.  It happens to be *any* pipeline improvement or construction project.”

Opponents say it’s time to transition away from fossil fuels and the best way is to stop building new pipelines.
