Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer has now ordered the shutdown of a major gas pipeline run by a Canadian company that runs through the Straits of Mackinac even though a significant gas shortage has crippled many parts of the United States.

Whitmer claimed that the pipeline was a ‘ticking time bomb,’


As The Daily Wire reports:

The Guardian reported that Whitmer told the Canadian company, Enbridge, to shut down the pipeline known as Line 5 by Wednesday due to activist fears that it could spill any day. The pipeline has operated for nearly 67 years and had never had a leak. A different Enbridge pipeline spilled 845,000 gallons of oil into Michigan’s Kalamazoo River back in 2010.

Further, Enbridge has been “working to tunnel beneath the lake bed to further improve the safety of the pipeline,” the Guardian reported, because the pipeline has been hit in the past two years by boat anchors and cables.

“These oil pipelines in the Straits of Mackinac are a ticking timebomb, and their continued presence violates the public trust and poses a grave threat to Michigan’s environment and economy,” Whitmer’s office said in a statement regarding the pipeline.

The Guardian reported that Whitmer campaigned on shutting down this pipeline, and is now pushing for its closure even as the U.S. Department of Transportation issued an emergency declaration for 17 states and the District of Columbia following a cyberattack on the country’s largest pipeline.

It seems that the Democrat obsession with climate change may end up costing Americans more and more as gas prices continue to climb.

She’s a moron that defies any logic. She wouldn’t recognize logical thinking if it smacked her in the face!

look she is a paid off traitor. This cyber attack annd her shutting down this pipeline (and if there was an accident it would be this governors fault because she would have been in on the attack) is the way this was planned. Attack America and have no repercussions.

Shut them down after the fuel shortage is over. Then you slowly blend in other sources while Enbridge makes it’s infrastructure sound again. jwstx

I am sorry shut them down, your right I mean boats are safer right, oh and trucks, and of course thoise methods are less costly too. I think maybe you had better look again at those assumptions.

I don’t think she can shut down a Canadian Pipeline It is an international treaty-type agreement and she shouldn’t have any power to do that. She’s a disgrace to our state!!!!
But, maybe this was something she and Premier Ford cooked up when she illegally visited him across the “closed to all others” border a few weeks ago. Is there money or power in it – then that’s the reason.

Premier Ford;s net worth has mysteriously increased 50Million since Mar 2020 via CHICOM/NWO Bribes. How much has Whitmores net worth increased?
