Pipeline dollars pumped back into Kindersley
Enbridge got a Co-op number when they came to town for the Line 3 pipeline replacement project. They asked the contractors to use it when buying groceries, hardware and gas. Just like anyone who gets an equity cheque through their annual purchases so did Enbridge.
$26,269 rebate from Kindersley & District Co-op
One of the many economic benefits of pipeline construction is the spending of workers in neighborhood stores. Enbridge and contractors OJ Pipelines, Banister Pipelines, SA Energy and sub-contractors were encouraged to make purchases locally. Funds were disbursed in 2020, however formal cheque presentations were postponed due to Coronoavirus.
Re-investing funds in order to leave a legacy
Guy Krepps from Enbridge is aware of the impact that a large construction project can leave. "We're always looking for ways to make that experience a positive one."
