The Walrus - - LETTERS -

It was a breath of fresh air to read Josiah Neufeld’s ar­ti­cle about the reaction to En­bridge’s Line 3 pipe­line-re­place­ment project in Man­i­toba (“Cross­ing Lines,” July/au­gust). I was re­lieved to learn that there are still non-in­dus­try Cana­di­ans who carry a prag­matic un­der­stand­ing of what pipe­lines pro­vide, in­clud­ing eco­nomic growth and safer trans­porta­tion than rail or truck. Ku­dos to those Man­i­to­bans who won’t be eas­ily coopted into an anti-fos­sil-fuel fight mis­di­rected at the mid­dle­man in­stead of the end user. It makes me see some hope in find­ing a re­al­is­tic mid­dle ground. Peter Martens Oakville, ON
