Tuesday March 7th, 2017 was the U.S State Department's only public meeting on the proposed Line 67 (formerly known as the Alberta Clipper) .  Enbridge needs to get Presidential approval to cross from Canada into the U.S.   According to Enbridge, there's an increased need for oil and with Line 67 they will be able to transport 890,000 gallons of oil a day instead of 500,000 safely.  This oil will move into Enbridge's new Line 3 along this route

The meeting was part of the regulatory process required of Enbridge and presented was a 700+ page Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement for Line 67 Expansion.  You can find the documents here.
