Chris talks with CBC Tony Doucette on Enbridge Line 5 | Mar 31, 2021
Yesterday, Chris Lewis MP had the opportunity to be on the Tony Doucette Show on CBC/Radio-Canada and discussed how vital the Enbridge Line 5 is to our region.
“Line 5 has been in use for, quite frankly, decades and I think there’s a much greater chance of an oil catastrophe, an oil spill on 14,000 trucks, barges in our Great Lakes or we put it on trains,” Lewis said. “We are very dependent on petroleum products … if Line 5 is shut down, we’re looking at a 50 per cent reduction in oil … that means costs go up again.”
Chris Lewis MP continues to not only be a voice for Essex in Ottawa but for Canada, as shutting down Line 5 will have a major impact on our economy.
