Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka stopped by our KKCQ studios in Fosston on Friday, July 30th. Gazelka was passing through town after visiting the Line 3 Protest Camp on Highway 32 between St. Hilaire and Thief River Falls. Protestors have been encamped at the location for months. Gazelka also visited the law enforcement staging areas.

There have been some arrests among the protestors for the damage they have caused at the protest site.

While the protestors have the right to protest peacefully Gazelka says when they damage property they should be arrested.

Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka.
