    Sure shut down all the pipe lines hell get rid of all the oil fields but FN
    REMEMBER you don’t just get rid of oil there is by products such as propane you sulfur leftovers from producing oil and more

    • Tell that to the environmentalists. Once gas and diesel prices go through the roof they will be sorry.
      Shipping companies will raise their rates to match the prices then pass it along to the consumer. Can’t wait to see when they can’t afford $15 for a loaf of bread.

  2. “Macinac” is pronounced “mackinaw”

  3. Doesn’t Hollywood have any film roles for Jane Fonda??? Look at all these celebrities who are Climate change activists

      Why don’t these companies shut down immediately. Leave the citizens world wide without gas and oil. See how fast these environmental groups beg to have the taps turned on. Blame oil and gas or every citizen ie consumer look in the mirror.

  4. Bad mis leading questions…what are they all going to do …park their..car.s????.so phoney…when gas prices are high..they will be screaming… Trudeau will do nothing

  5. Keystone XL cancelled (it’s just Alberta….f**k ’em)
    Line 5 is threatened (and so is Ontario and Quebec’s gas supply) EVERYONE PANICS

      @Franklin Fleming meh, only time will tell. Still a lot of hoops to jump through before all that happens to a functioning pipeline.

    • That’s Tax $. Have fun raising taxes to cover healthcare costs when it’s gone. EVERY barrel of oil is taxed…

    • @Carmen Lajoie no it cause Warren Buffett owns the railroad where the oil is being transported with

    • Jay J. That’s because Keystone XL is not even built yet! Line 5 is an active pipeline that supplies Ontario with fossil fuels

    • @Shiddy McGee ENB is a utility. Utilities are basically always a monopoly, although Enb has more than a few competitors. TC energy, pembina, Kinder Morgan, and many more.

    Shes not the Governor. I’ll debate that fact any day.

  14. Build more pipelines but keep them within Canada.

  15. It is time for Canada to start Energy East to at least Ontario in order to eliminate the dependence on a foreign country for domestic energy supply.

    Dim-Whitmer wants to shut down line 5. And bring in the oil by railway tankers. What could possibly go wrong?

  17. I think they should shut it off and then do public announcements on why the prices of energy have skyrocketed in Michigan is because of her.

  18. 150 psi is a bike tire pressure? Common sense jag off.

    Who stopped the guys the was going to kidnap her again? What were they thinking?

  20. I’d get that pipe line else where now, whitmer might destroy it just to create a crisis.
