Dakota Resource Council Protesting

Posted: Updated:

The Dakota Resource Council wants to ban current railcars used in shipping Bakken Crude Oil. 

Members of DRC protested Tuesday near the Amtrak Station in Grand Forks. 

The group says the DOT 111 cars can be punctured in a derailment and is asking the Federal Department of Transportation to ban their use. The group is also urging oil companies in the Bakken to start stabilizing the flammable crude oil so it's safer to transport through North Dakota and Canadian markets.
