It was exciting to see the courts recently rule in favor of the Enbridge Line 3 replacement as they refused to halt the current construction underway.
I think I can speak for many towns and cities out here when I say that we are so grateful for this project and the incredible benefit it is bringing to our communities today and for years to come.
We have seen an amazing uptick in traffic and business since construction began at the end of last year. More folks are coming through town, spending money at coffee shops, staying at hotels, and eating at our restaurants. They are exploring all Bemidji has to offer and our small businesses who had been hit so hard by the pandemic are finally seeing a light at the end of the tunnel.
Folks who are against this project simply need to look at the facts. Agencies under Governor Dayton, Governor Walz, and the Obama/Biden Administration have ruled that this project is of great need and that Enbridge has surpassed all reviews and studies to ensure it will be done safely.
These recent court decisions are just another step in the right direction, and I am glad the Line 3 Pipeline will be allowed to continue working towards completion.
