Enbridge Energy Line Three Discussions in St. Cloud Have Been Canceled at the Request of the City.

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The state Public Utilities Commission has canceled public hearings scheduled this week in St. Cloud on Enbridge Energy's proposal to replace its aging Line 3 crude oil pipeline across northern Minnesota.

The PUC says the city of St. Cloud advised the commission of "logistical and safety issues" related to many events being held Thursday at River's Edge Convention Center.

The commission is reviewing options for rescheduling the two hearings in St. Cloud. Last week, protesters cut short a hearing in Duluth on the Line 3 project.

Tribal and environmental groups say the project threatens pristine waters where wild rice grows.

Enbridge and its supporters say Line 3 is a needed piece of infrastructure, and that replacing it will make it safer while creating jobs.
