    It is truly amazing how the general public has no idea how energy gets delivered. Warren Buffett, that old prune, has fought the Keystone Pipeline since day one. He owns railroad tanker cars up the ying yang. Amazing the inefficiencies in that delivery system. Pipelines are the only way to move fossil fuels. Period. All hail the "propellers". Wind should only be for political dialogue not BS energy production.

    Canadian Oil can stay in Canada. If and when the pipe breaks, let it foul their lands/water.

    She's a moron. The project she is blocking was to tunnel through the bedrock below the straights and run the pipe through the bore as a replacement for the underwater one that gets damaged by dumb ship captains who cant anchor their ships without floating away.

    Enbridge should shut it down now, when the UP and Northern lower Michigan have $10 a gallon propane this winter we'll see how long Whitmer lasts or the UP decides to leave Michigan and create their own new State.

    I'm with you on this. The reality is there will always be a pipeline of some sort crossing the straits of Mackinac It would be better to have one encased in concrete that is anchor proof, instead of the current one that is aging, and like you said, exposed to damage from whatever above.

    Hold on to your wallets, this is only the beginning.

    The tunnel probably would have been half way done if not completed by now. If it was for interference in Lansing

    So much for the word of the People. The legislature has already spoken.

    Do any of you know what gets piped through Line-5, where it comes from, or where it ends up at?

    Junk tar sands oil from Canada, piped through the USA (to save the Canadian environment) and ending up in Sarnia. Thanks God we get to keep their trash in our landfills!

    Eff Enbridge.

    They are responsible for the #1 and #2 worst inland oil spills in our history.

    Just watch your wallet, the price of fuel, and as a result, everything, is about to skyrocket.

    So be it. It is long passed time that we stop worrying about Me! Me! Me!

    We can’t safely eat fish from anywhere in our state. There are areas where we can’t safely eat the animals anymore either.

    But who gives a ****, it’s Me! Me! Me!

    I have had enough of listening to people in Michigan talk to me about how “outdoors” they are, only to run home to meet the True Green man or vote to have their lake sprayed to kill weeds.
