Indigenous self-determination the real force behind another pipeline’s dead end, Sept. 6
I am writing in response to this opinion piece from writers Stewart Phillip and Tara Houska that made statements about our Line 3 Replacement Project.
First and foremost, the Line 3 Replacement Project is about enhancing safety. In making a safe pipeline safer, Enbridge is replacing infrastructure that is critical to our society, much like a highway, a bridge or an airport.
Secondly, it’s important to recognize the broad support this project has among governments, landowners and Indigenous communities. That’s due in part to an engagement effort that included more than 150 Indigenous communities in Canada as far as 300 kilometres from the pipeline right-of-way.
