BRAINERD, Minn. -- Honor the Earth, a group calling for rerouting Enbridge Energy’s proposed Sandpiper pipeline away from northern Minnesota, brought its outreach events to Brainerd on Thursday.


The group waved signs just west of the Washington Street bridge stating its opposition to the 616-mile pipeline route. There was also a canoe launch Thursday evening at a local park.
