Michigan environmental groups are frustrated with Ontario’s support for keeping an oil-and-gas pipeline running beneath the Straits of Mackinac.
The province’s Ministry of Energy sent Michigan a letter earlier this week. The ministry stressed the importance of Enbridge’s Line 5 pipeline to Ontario.
Environmental groups say this flies in the face of their efforts to shut down the pipeline. Line 5 carries crude oil and liquid natural gas under the Straits of Mackinac. Activists say it’s a massive environmental risk.
