CLC pipeline forum rescheduled for Nov. 24

The Rosenmeier Center for State and Local Government has rescheduled a forum to discuss the future of oil pipelines in Minnesota in general and the Enbridge Sandpiper pipeline in particular.

The Rosenmeier Center for State and Local Government has rescheduled a forum to discuss the future of oil pipelines in Minnesota in general and the Enbridge Sandpiper pipeline in particular.

The forum, "Moving Canadian Tar Sands and Bakken Crude Oil to Market: The Minnesota Connection," will be held 7 p.m. Nov. 24 in Central Lakes College's Chalberg Theater. The forum had been scheduled for Nov. 10 but was postponed due to severe winter weather.

Rosenmeier President Eric Klang said, "This is a complex subject, transporting oil across Minnesota, either by pipeline or rail. And it's become a sensitive and contentious topic. We'd like solutions that will help the nation's economy and America's economic future but still keep Minnesota safe for our grandchildren. That's a tough tightrope to walk sometimes. But we think this panel can chart the course or at least ask the right questions."

Panel members include Minnesota Pollution Control Agency Commissioner Jon Linc Stine, Laborers District Council of Minnesota and North Dakota Director Kevin Pranis and photographer Richard Hamilton Smith, director of the Friends of the Headwaters.

A representative of Enbridge was unable to be a part of this forum, but the Rosenmeier Center has tentatively scheduled a second forum early next year on this topic to include the company.
