Line 5 is critical to Canada. It supplies roughly half of the oil used by Ontario and Quebec. It connects Alberta and Saskatchewan producers to vital markets in central Canada. It’s critical for jobs, our cost of living, the economy and thousands of products Canadians rely on every day.
The State of Michigan wants to shut down Line 5, which would cut off the essential energy it delivers to Canada.
We’re calling on the Canadian Government to engage its U.S. counterparts to find a solution that avoids an energy crisis in Canada during this COVID-19 pandemic.
Line 5 supplies critical energy for Canadians
Line 5 feeds central Canadian refineries, ensuring a safe and affordable supply of gasoline, diesel, propane, jet fuel, plastics and chemicals.
It supports critical energy supply chains, which in turn supports other sectors of our economy, including agriculture and manufacturing.
Line 5 supports thousands of well-paying jobs across Canada.
Enbridge has applied to build a tunnel to house the line deep under the Straits of Mackinac. While Line 5 has operated safely and reliably in the Straits for more than 65 years, this new tunnel will further protect the environment.
In the meantime Line 5 must stay open. It is a critical piece of North American energy infrastructure that benefits both Canada and the U.S.
The time to act is now.
