American Indians Join Flotilla Protest of Enbridge Pipeline 5 at Mackinac Straits


MACKINAW CITY, MICHIGAN—Each Labor Day some 40,000 people walk across the Mackinac Bridge, a bridge that spans five miles to connect Michigan’s two peninsulas under the Straits of Mackinac. The Labor Day walk is the region’s busiest time of the year.

Under the Straits of Mackinac lies two twin pipelines owned by Enbridge called Pipeline 5, which are 62-years-old. Using 1950s technology, the pipelines had a life expectancy of 33 years.
