Reader Opinion: Questioning editorial

I have serious questions and concerns about how many jobs were created that local citizens performed and how many are still in place because of the Line 3 replacement project.

Last week’s editorial published in this newspaper but spawned from the Duluth News Tribune regarding the economic impact of Line 3 is entirely slanted in one way — the Enbridge company and its pipeline. The ability to attack and criticize the writing and the facts are so blatant that it’s embarrassing that it passed editorial review. The author states that the data has come from Enrbidge itself and therefore “...its findings can be relied on as accurate.” I have serious questions and concerns about how many jobs were created that local citizens performed and how many are still in place? I do know one thing and that is the Duluth News Tribune is not going to tell me the entire truth to my questions.
