Enbridge Line 5 Update| May 11, 2021
The governor of Michigan has issued a notice ordering Enbridge Inc. to shut down Line 5 by May 12, after terminating the easement for the pipeline.
Enbridge Line 5 has indicated it will operate Line 5 legally unless ordered to do so by a court order.
Enbridge Line 5 carries Canadian oil east, providing around half of the crude oil needs of Ontario and Quebec.
The clock runs out tomorrow. I, along with my Colleagues, urgently call on Prime Minister Trudeau to call President Biden and invoke the 1977 Transit Pipelines Treaty to ensure this vital infrastructure link remains open. Canadians can’t afford another pipeline failure under this Liberal government.
