Enbridge Inc., the Canadian-based energy giant, announced yesterday that their new #Line3 tar sands pipeline was complete and that oil is expected to flow through it tomorrow.
In their press release, Enbridge states that "its completion ensures a safe, reliable supply of North American crude oil to U.S. refineries," which is evocative to their arguments in appeals court defending one of their approved permits.
Instead of showing any proof that forecast the public’s need for more crude oil products, in the appeal hearing against the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission, Enbridge focused on how there is enough crude being produced in Canada from tar sands to ship it through the line.

[Content Warning - Sexual Assault]

UPDATE: The man that raped Ali (who had shared her story with UR) accepted a plea bargain today in Dakota County, MN, for Criminal Sexual Conduct in the 5th Degree (Nonconsensual Sexual Contact).

Full Vid [Aug '21]:…
The deal allows for Ali's perpetrator to execute his sentence w/ time served, meaning he doesn't have probation & won't serve jail time.

He was sentenced to 365 days in jail but given time served after receiving credit for a recent prison stint from a separate drug sentence. ↕️
Along with no jail time specific to the sexual assault on Ali & no probation, the plea deal signed today by the perpetrator also means he won't have to register as a sexual predator or be charged w rape. He was assessed a $130 fine after having $75 for his public defender waived.
