Just remember, you don’t truly own anything in this world, not even your own life.
The government owns you, and everything associated with you, and there’s not a darn thing you can do about it.
You can’t even legally kill yourself to get out of the situation. The government will come arrest you and use lethal force to stop you.
Resistance is futile…

They will return the property to its original condition. You ought to see how the water and gas dept left our property!

As someone who knows the Engelking family this is par for the course for them. If they want to argue with you they’ll swear that the sky is purple and they’ll believe it.

Sorry Pete, but is it their land or is it not their land?

“In addition to seeking a temporary injunction, Enbridge also has sued the Engelkings for breach of contract, citing a permanent easement that was granted across their land by a prior landowner in 1949. That agreement contained a provision allowing for the future construction of additional lines using the same pipeline corridor, so long as compensation was provided.”
They bought land that they knew to have this provision. They were compensated for use of the land, and Jeremy being Jeremy decided not to accept the money. Enbridge acted in good faith and abided by the terms of the provision.
The Engelkings are acting like kids who play a game, start losing, and immediately want the rules changed for them. If they didn’t want Enbridge to work on their land then they should have bought elsewhere. Instead they chose property they knew to have contractual obligations and now don’t want to live up to those obligations.
