Description

Outside the debate between Governor Dayton and challenger Jeff Johnson a group gathered on Snelling Avenue to protest the glass being used in the new Vikings stadium. Environmentalists are warning that thousands of birds will die flying into the glass walls of the new stadium unless a different kind of reflecting glass is used. The Vikings have said that it is too late to change the glass in the stadium which is already under construction and using bird safe glass would not look as good. The size of the citizen contribution to build the stadium was cited as one reason to add the more expensive, bird deflecting glass.
