pipelines can be safe. We have as an example the NAWS pipeline running south from Minot to Lake Sakakawea which has never had a leak or spill in the many years since it was built.

This whole thing is a crock of*****to be honest. You need to ensure this community has a very effective crisis communications team in place to ensure if something happens in Minot with the oil pipeline that communication will be efficiently and effectively communicated. As far as Scott Louser speaking, it is a public meeting and he shouldn't be speaking because it makes it look like he is speaking on his representatives behalf and do not speak for me. As for this meeting smoke and mirrors and it will go through anyways just like everything else in this community.

Brian Kalk's comment was good: the PSC should hear about problems before a hearing to approve another pipeline. And Enbridge reps should make it right before another pipeline is approved.

I remember that Prairie Public documentary featuring former Gov. Art Link and his dealings with coal companies back in the day. Gov. Link did not back down from those interests until he got the assurances that were necessary for stewardship of ND's resources.

We are trusting that our elected officials will do that same job for us in respect to the oil industry. Period.

Yay, Mr. Stromberg. Yay, Mr. Kalk. Good on ya both. Let's do it right.

This quote below is not something you should ever hear come out of the mouth of any state representative. I smells really bad of being in bed with the oil/gas companies.

"From a business perspective, Enbridge makes efforts like no other business that I have seen, that I am aware of, in any industry with regard to safety, with the exception of the medical industry," said state Rep. Scott Louser, R-Minot

When it comes to oil in ND the fox is definitely guarding the chicken coupe.

The only watchdogs are employees of the fox. What the heck is the big hurry to rape and pillage our State anyway? Our State government is drowning in cash, what is really going on?

Can't prove it but the behavior of our republican city, county and state Gov't. is as though they r all bought out by oil. This reckless oil work will one day come to something very bad.

They have a meeting, enbridge and oil/money giddy sycophants, and enbridge brags about how good and safe they r--then some truth about how good they ain't is exposed and they don't offer to fix it immediately--worse yet have the sinkholes in the first place? Sounds like that old country song about a two-faced school board. There are sinkholes throughout the badlands where pipe was poorly buried in the fifties and seventies.Enbridge 0, landowner 1. now do u get the objection to kxl?

When enbridge allowed the psc to request the problems from the landowner--instead of asking themselves; They made him the only upstanding man in the meeting
