Communities have opposed the Line 3 pipeline for years, and governments and regulators have continuously prioritized profits over people. We must support peaceful resistance on the frontlines to stop this destructive pipeline.
Line 3 is a new $8.2 billion oil pipeline set to be built along the route of a smaller, existing pipeline from the Alberta oil sands, across the prairies and through southern Manitoba, to the shores of Lake Superior. The new pipeline has been billed as a replacement for the existing, aging infrastructure, but in reality is a massive expansion that will nearly double the capacity to 760,000 barrels of crude oil per day.
This pipeline means expansion of the tar sands. It threatens our climate, water, land, and communities. It violates Indigenous rights, and is widely opposed by many Nations along the route.
Frontline land defenders set up a camp along the pipeline route in Manitoba, Spirit of the Buffalo Camp, led by Geraldine McManus. The camp is not currently active, but you can find any updates on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/Spirit-of-the-Buffalo-193174971349463/.
