Protesters disrupt regulatory hearing on Enbridge pipeline

 

November 20, 2018



ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota regulators reaffirmed their support Monday for Enbridge Energy's proposal to replace its aging Line 3 crude oil pipeline across northern Minnesota, while dozens of protesters walked out of the overflow hearing to make a point about climate change.

The Public Utilities Commission unanimously rejected a motion by opponents to reconsider its previous decision to grant a certificate of need for the project. And the commissioners agreed that Calgary, Alberta-based Enbridge has met several conditions that they imposed when they approved the plan in June.
