Activists urge Biden to cancel oil pipeline through Native American land

Washington Correspondent

President Biden has made the fight against climate change a key priority of his new administration, cancelling the planned Keystone XL pipeline on his very first day in office.

But he hasn’t done the same for Enbridge 3, a pipeline carrying oil across much of Northern Minnesota, including swathes of Native American land.
Protesters claim it could be devastating for the environment, but the Canadian firm which is building it says it will bring thousands of new jobs and a huge boost to the local economy.
