highly unlikely -- >> wind and solar, they are great, geothermal all great but you can't just get rid of this too. it's not a real thing. we want to clean planet. most construction in this refinery over the last several years is about protecting the environment. >> the pipeline shutdown would affect your business, how so? >> a trickle down effect with prices, they shut that down, we lose jobs. >> shutting down the pipeline, the people in this community and all the other communities between the pipeline and us, that is a pipeline shutdown. that is their life. >> reporter: what does this company means your family? >> this company means everything. i have been fortunate enough to be the refinery life, child of my dad working here so long and me being here over 6 years of

in my eyes, and base that decision on people. not politics. no place for that. >> reporter: a lot of concerned people. where does the pipeline stand? the answer is complicated, it is locked in a battle between gretchen witmer, and then it got kicked up to the biden administration because canada once the pipeline to say, they invoke the 1977 treaty, you don't see that happening often but there are so many people on the ground, hard-working people that work at this company that are really concerned this pipeline is going wait if it goes away that means their jobs go away with it. >> what is important about your piece it is not just those jobs would go away with it, it is the
supporting jobs, the restaurant owner you saw, people not going to the restaurant as much, they are talking how his town will be impacted. that's why stories like this are so important and so important to tell it the way you did. >> one other thing, everyone has been so nice at the toledo refining company and a lot of people are here extra early, they haven't gracious enough to host us and he's saying it is not just about the jobs but also the company does so much for this community, toledo is an up and coming city, really getting things going in the right direction, a lot of new construction and they want the town to be great and this company goes away that is not happening anymore so a lot riding on these legal battles, the decision whether to shut the pipeline down, we are talking to more people on that front all morning long. in the meantime parents in two major school districts are left
