Enbridge moves must be monitored

To the Journal editor:

Recently, Enbridge Energy, the Canadian energy conglomerate, spent serious money on full page newspaper ads throughout Michigan.

Titled Line 5 Project, the ads include a dramatic illustration of their proposed Mackinac straits tunnel.

I invite everyone to take a close look at the illustration and the wording of this … ad. As you will see, the picture includes a person in the tunnel to show its dramatic size.

Scale the picture and you will see that the person is about 3¢ tall. The ad wording includes the statement “Proudly delivering energy in Michigan” rather than …delivering energy to Michigan.

We certainly know that Enbridge is in Michigan, just ask the folks in Calhoun County victimized by the largest inland oil spill ever.

Please look and listen closely when Enbridge starts their spin.
