Enbridge’s Line 5 oil pipeline in the open water of the Great Lakes was briefly shut down on Thursday, June 18 due to newly-discovered pipeline damage. Despite Gov. Whitmer's formal request of Enbridge to inspect the damage and then report what happened before the pipeline was restarted, it chose to ignore the request and restarted the pipeline Friday without providing the requested damage information.
Tell Gov. to Shut Down Line 5
The governor responded by requesting more information from Enbridge and ratcheted up the pressure, but she did not go far enough and take action to revoke Enbridge’s easement and require a complete shutdown of Line 5.
Enough is enough. Enbridge has proven once again that they cannot be trusted with the sanctity of the Great Lakes.
