'Suspicious packages' escalate pipeline tensions


February 24, 2021

Suspicious packages thrown from a vehicle toward Enbridge Line 3 workers forced police to evacuate about 40 residents from their homes for several hours on the Fond du Lac reservation in Minnesota.

According to Carlton County sheriff Kelly Lake, two packages were thrown Friday as water protectors opposing the pipeline project were dispersing from the Enbridge construction site.

A bomb squad was called to the area but no explosives were found, according to Lake. State and federal authorities are investigating the incident.
