Bill Grant, a deputy commissioner at the Minnesota Department of Commerce, says the Line 3 replacement is not needed and Enbridge has failed to show sufficient need for a new pipeline. The DOC has opposed the project since Sept. 11, 2017.

Bill Grant with MN Dept. of Commerce reiterates the department's opposition to the proposal. Says "Enbridge is asking a lot of the state of MN. 340 miles to be exact." But says they did not meet MN standards in proving a need for the pipeline.

Wrong. chose to not appeal the court's decision. First Nations rejected the pipeline (was it perhaps the disappearing islands?), and, under our Charter, the federal government had little choice but to reject it as well.

Texas-based and Alberta-based use substandard materials in parts of their pipelines, but are "not able to say where they installed the dodgy parts." (this was also the cause of the Alberta natural gas that blew up in 2013)
