The University of Winnipeg Students Association hosted a fantastic event on the Line 3 pipeline on March 11th. It featured inspiring speakers Winona Laduke, environmentalist and economist from Honor the Earth, as well as Joelle Pastora Sala and Allison Fenske, counsel to the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs regarding Line 3 Judicial Review. Line 3 is an export pipeline proposed by Enbridge which would run from Hardisty, Alberta through Saskatchewan and Manitoba to the States. Drawing mostly from these wonderful presentations, we can gather 10 key points about the Line 3 pipeline.
