Line 3 Pipeline

Line 3 is an oil sands pipeline owned and operated since 1968 by Enbridge, a Canadian energy transportation company.[1] It runs from Hardisty, Alberta to Superior, Wisconsin.[1] In 2014, Enbridge proposed the construction of a new route for the Line 3 pipeline which would increase the volume of oil they could transport daily.[1] While that project has been approved in Canada,[2] Wisconsin,[3] and North Dakota,[4] it has sparked continued resistance from climate justice groups and Native American communities in Minnesota.[5]
