Tribal Opposition To Oil Pipeline Expansion Continues


ST. PAUL, MN (MNC-KDAL) - Tribal groups in Minnesota are continuing their calls for the Enbridge Energy Sandpiper project and existing pipeline expansion to be shut down completely.

The project has been delayed for another two years, until 2019, by a court ordered environmental impact study.

Winona LaDuke, with the environmental group Honor the Earth, says the pipeline would affect two reservations and "cross through the middle of the heart of our wild rice territory, the most sacred food of our people." LaDuke's group and others have taken Enbridge to court saying the pipeline projects also violate treaty agreements.
