MAIN Coalition Statement on Richard Kuprewicz Commentary

Following the release of an opposition-generated report signed by anti-pipeline activist Richard Kuprewicz, the spokesman for the MAIN Coalition, Craig Stevens, released the following statement:

“That an activist-funded, back-of-the-envelope commentary is even mentioned in the same breath as a 160 page scientific and technical analysis of more than 1,600 pages of charts, graphs, independent research and study, public input, and impact mitigation plans, done over the course of more than 800 days is not only ludicrous but also insulting to the dozens of Army Corps of Engineers and civil servants who toiled more than two years to ensure this pipeline project adhered to our nation’s rigorous regulatory requirements.

Had this been an industry-funded screed it would be immediately dismissed. This should be given that same value.”
