Canada Issues Warning To U.S. Over Oil Pipeline Shutdown Order

I normally would tell America to do as you must as Canada is definitely NOT your ally, especially in Ontario.

We will see how this all unfolds however. I don't want to see many Canadians suffer because of the actions of Canadas immoral covert police system that spits on America and your interests. The cat has been out of the bag for the last couple of decades I'm sure, I warned former leaders that we are hurting ourselves by treating foreign nations as we treat our own citizens.

It seems Canada is taking the U.S to court over this pipeline in hopes of dictating to you how you can operate in your own country.



The federal Canadian government has warned Washington of Michigan's plan to shut down a pipeline transporting Canadian crude to U.S. refineries risks worsening bilateral relations.

In a legal filing, Ottawa said the shutting down of the Line 5 pipeline will harm relations between Canada and the United States, have a negative impact on jobs and gasoline prices, and violate a treaty from 1977, the Financial Post said.

Earlier this month, Canada's Natural Resources Minister Seamus O'Regan told Bloomberg that keeping Line 5 open is "nonnegotiable."

"Line 5 is very different from Keystone XL and we fully support it, and we will defend it," O'Regan said.

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer and the director of the state's Department of Natural Resources revoked Enbridge's easement for the operation of the twin Line 5 pipeline last November, citing repeated violations of the easement and the need to protect the Great Lakes.

Michigan's notice required Enbridge to cease operations of the pipelines in the Straits of Mackinac by May of 2021. Ten days after the state's notice, Enbridge filed a federal complaint at a U.S. district court seeking an injunction to stop Michigan's order for closure of the Line 5 pipeline, arguing that the state's shutdown order violates U.S. federal law and the Constitution.


Today is the last day for Enbridge to stop operating the pipeline, with Governor Whitmer threatening to seize the company's profits from Line 5 if it doesn't shut it down. Enbridge, for its part, has said it would only shut down the pipeline if a court or an energy regulator order it to do so.

Trump was told not to let that pipeline go ahead and he went ahead and did it anyway. He's just that STUPID. When the pipeline leaked into the water table, which was the reason the environmental report said it should not be built, Trump did NOTHING.

WHEN STUPID PEOPLE MAKE STUPID DECISIONS SOMEONE WITH BRAINS AND A MORAL COMPASS NEEDS TO INTERCEDE.

Ah, so, the crime here is that we pumped stuff up out of the ground and some of it went back into the ground where it came from? Ah Oh!!! :omg:

And Donald didn't do anything about it!!! :disbelief:

But thanks for reasserting for us that when the rest of the world doesn't do to please you, that you are on the ready to jump in, take over, run our fucking lives for us, and tell us what to do!

If it had gone "back into the ground where it came from" it wouldn't be a problem. The problem is that it went back into the ground thousands of miles where it came from, and where the native American people got their drinking water from and thus poisoned their water.

I realize the issues of American people having a safe supply of drinking water is of no concern to you so you don't see a problem with this. Conservatives always put profits ahead of people.

Joe doesn't hate pipelines. He cancelled sanctions Donald Trump placed on the Russian built Nord Stream
pipeline doing Vladimir Putin a tremendous favor.
