Group of Wisconsinians travel to Minnesota to protest pipeline


WAUSAU, Wis. (WAOW) – A group of Wisconsinites travel to Minnesota to protest the Line 3 pipeline replacement.

The pipeline goes from Alberta, Canada, to Superior, Wisconsin.

Enbridge, a natural gas transportation company, is seeking to replace it by citing safety standards, future maintenance and creating less disturbance to the environment.

However, not everyone is on board.

This is why some people are scouring the state and speaking out against replacement.

News 9 has spoken to those protesting in Minnesota.

They say if this pipeline is replaced there could be a negative impact on the environment, including here in Wisconsin.

“All of this puts the lands of Wisconsin in the water where our citizens live at risk. In addition to damaging the climate for everyone. We will not have a liveable climate if the tar sands are dug up and burned,” he said. said Cathy Cowan Becker, northeastern organizer of the Wisconsin revolution.

According to Enbridge, the new Line 3 pipeline would serve the same markets and carry the same products as the existing Line 3 pipeline.

News 9 has contacted Enbridge for comment, but has not received a response.

The big protest is scheduled to take place on June 5 in northern Minnesota.

Those from Wisconsin who will be there say they are expecting hundreds if not at least 1,000 people at the protest.
