Why Michigan wants to shut down crucial oil pipeline, and why it would be disastrous for Canada

Already smarting from the shutdown of the Keystone XL pipeline, Canada’s oil industry is now facing the prospect that a long-operating oil line could be shut down.  Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer has revoked an easement for Enbridge’s Line 5, which ships oil from Alberta, through the U.S. and onto refineries in southern Ontario, but also several U.S. states.   This has raised concern, not only in oil-producing Alberta, but in Ontario and Quebec.  Financial Post energy reporter Geoffrey Morgan joins Dave to discuss Michigan’s concerns over the pipeline, how the Canadian government is responding, and what the ramifications would be in Canada and the U.S. if Line 5 is shut down.  Background reading: Ontario relieved Ottawa fighting for Line 5, but fears pipeline could become politically toxic  Learn more about your ad choices.
