Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer ordered a Canadian energy company to shut down an oil pipeline long targeted by activists despite fuel shortages brought on by the cyberattack on the nation’s largest pipeline.
“These oil pipelines in the Straits of Mackinac are a ticking timebomb, and their continued presence violates the public trust and poses a grave threat to Michigan’s environment and economy,”

So Whitmer , as a governor , can make demands from other countries ?
That is only the POTUS's job.
Does Biden actually run this country or just anyone without a brain and has a mouth ?
Does Biden actually run this country ... ?

Gretchen is a POS, BUT, this
"The pipeline, and particularly its more than 4-mile underwater section in the Straits, have for years been a source of contention.
Enbridge was responsible for one of the largest inland oil spills in U.S. history — a major leak on one of its large oil transmission lines near Marshall in July 2010. That spill fouled more than 38 miles of the Kalamazoo River and took four years and more than $1 billion to clean up. Enbridge in 2016 agreed to a $177-million settlement with the U.S. Justice Department and Environmental Protection Agency, including $62 million in penalties, over the Marshall spill and a 2010 spill on another of its pipelines in Romeoville, Illinois."
Thats what, $800 million the US taxpayer had to foot?

Again she is overstepping her authority.

Part of me wants to see it shut down, at least for a short time.
No offence or ill-will intended to our US neighbours but Canada needs its own energy security. The enviro-weenies and their corporate backers managed to get the Energy East pipeline proposal killed off a few years ago that would have moved our own oil n gas from Alberta to the East. This would be a nice kick in the pants to ON and QC to rethink their hatred of Canadian energy.

How dare this young female use her influence in the MSM to call out an unscrupulous oil corporation!
This could even end up costing people a few cents extra to fill up their tank... you can’t get more anti American than that!
