Pipeline Safety: Is there a better way?
Do we have to have tar sands oil piped through some of the most pristine waters of our states? Richard Smith is spokesperson for Friends of the Headwaters (FOH), a citizen’s group formed to oppose Enbridge’s proposed new oil pipelines through both Minnesota’s and Wisconsin’s headwaters lakes and river country, and he may have a better way. He will present with pictures, maps and illustrations FOH’s “common sense” reasoning for moving these pipelines away from these precious water resources.
