Two Arrested During Protest of Line 3 Project
Two people were arrested on Wednesday during a protest of Enbridge Energy’s Line 3 project.
The Hubbard County Sheriff’s Office received a trespassing complaint on property owned by Enbridge about 15 miles north of Park Rapids. Officers observed around 20 people inside appearing to be tampering with equipment and holding anti-Line 3 flags and banners. Two individuals chained themselves to a piece of heavy equipment and when they were removed, they were placed under arrest.
20-year-old Elizabeth Foy of St. Paul and 24-year-old Mira Grinsfelder of Minneapolis were both charged with trespassing and obstructing the legal process.
