Join us at 4PM on January 12th at the Red Herring in Duluth to hear firsthand stories from Enbridge whistleblower John Bolenbaugh. He will share his experiences as a former clean-up worker for S.E.T Environmental and tell the story of how he became a whistleblower for the largest tar sands oil spill in North American history.
This event is free and open to the public.
The former sub-contractor for Enbridge will discuss the catastrophic Kalamazoo River tar sands pipeline spill in 2010 in Michigan, and his successful efforts to expose the company’s attempts to cover-up their incomplete and shoddy clean up work.
Bolenbaugh’s truth telling forced Enbridge to re-clean several dozen areas that had been approved as 100% clean by Enbridge, the EPA and the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality. His exposure forced the EPA to demand that Enbridge re-clean the covered up areas and re-dredge the river at an estimated cost of $600,000,000.
John comes to the Lake Superior region to take part in a series of Community Conversations with local citizens to educate and inspire participation in a grass roots effort to take action to protect our water from experiencing a disaster resulting from a pipeline spill.
