LANSING – The Michigan League of Conservation Voters today issued the following statement after Enbridge Energy stated it would not comply with Gov. Gretchen Whitmer‘s November revocation of the pipeline’s easement.
“Enbridge’s irresponsible refusal to comply with Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s decision is a slap in the face to Michigan families who care about our Great Lakes and clean drinking water more than Big Oil profits,” said Lisa Wozniak, executive director of Michigan LCV. “Enbridge’s latest comments show this habitual corporate bad actor believes they can operate outside of the rules, above the law and only care about their massive profits – not our Great Lakes and the families who rely on clean drinking water to live. We continue to support Gov. Whitmer and state regulators in holding Enbridge accountable for its shoddy record on safety, transparency and their continued refusal to follow basic guidelines.”
