Calvin is a landowner in the Sandhills of Nebraska, the “new” proposed route still crosses his land. Calvin says at the end, “there’s gotta be a better place than this.”

 

Landowners Karl Connell and Ernie Fellows oppose the pipeline. The pipe’s new proposed route still threatens Karl’s land which is Sandhills.

This is the Sandhills, this is Karl’s land, this should not be crossed by TransCanada’s pipeline.
