Diversion Opponents Sue Army Corps

by Amy Iler

Joel speaks with both sides of the issue. 

First, Nathan Berseth, with the Upstream Coalition, explains why they have decided to bring the lawsuit forward.  

Following Berseth's interview, Cass County Commissioner Darrell Vanyo, believes there were ulterior motives to the meeting in Christine, ND and while "everyone" says they want flood protection, "every move that is made is an obstacle thrown in to ensure we don't get it [red river diversion]... it's hard to hear all the rhetoric".
