Here’s an interesting short piece from an industry safety website. The key paragraph is this:
Critics contend the project is an attempt to use the concerns from the 2010 spill to pressure the public service commission to allow the company to build a new, higher capacity line quickly and without the same level of federal oversight that would occur if the entire line, including a section across the St. Clair River into Ontario, ended up replaced in one project.
Tomorrow night (Monday, July 30), The Brandon Township Board of Trustees will once again take up the issue of Enbridge’s activity in their township. Interested citizens are welcome to attend. The meeting time and location are available here.
This one is in Wisconsin. Coverage from the Chicago Tribune.
An extensive article, on the replacement project, fair and more thorough than most that have been written, by Monica Drake in The Oakland Press (we are quoted in it).
We’re on vacation in Minnesota this week. And as it turns out, our drive takes us right through Superior, Wisconsin. So we stopped by the Enbridge offices to have a little chat with them about their treatment of landowners. Details of our encounter coming soon.
