There were two Line 3 related events in one day and both really show the reality of the project.
Enbridge last week donated $ 366,000 to Waubun-Ogema-White Earth Community Schools to help provide Internet access to low-income families. The donation will help provide vital service and long-term benefit to the students in the Mahnomen-Naytahwaush School District.

On the same day, Line 3 protesters marched through downtown Duluth. They blocked the traffic and closed the lift bridge. The protesters forced the police to answer who was attending the Kids, Cops and Cars event at Bayfront Festival Park. Instead of spending time with children, officials had to negotiate with protesters over an almost completed project.
At one event, we saw Enbridge invest in a community to help schools help children and families. On the other hand, we saw protesters ignoring the effects of their actions, which had a negative impact on children and put people at risk.
Both happened on the same day – while the construction of Line 3 continues. With the work almost done, these two events speak for themselves.
