  • YEAH SURE. THINGS MADE BACK THEN WERE MADE TO LAST. THIS IS ALL SCARE TACTICS. MAKE YOU SUBMIT BY FEAR. PROBABLY GONNA TAKE YOUR PIPES AND REDIRECT THEM TO ISRAEL…SUCKERS.

  • How about….you go around the fucking lake? They have plenty of money for fucks sake…build the gallows because people need to hang!

  • I am looking at that bridge. Couldn't they put two pipelines on that bridge with large empty tanks at each end to empty the pipelines into in an emergency? (Earthquake for example?) Then they can keep those pipes pristine by hands on paint and service until the bridge is replaced. And if they are not self insured, they can save a fortune on insurance against catastrophic accident.

  • IF THE CANADIANS ARE IN CHARGE OF THIS PREVENTIVE SPILL WE BETTER PROTEST YOU GUYS SHOULD SEE WHAT CANADA DID TO MEXICO OVER 5000 HOLES FRAKINNG CONTAMINATED EVERYTHING WILDLIFE DESTROYED AND CONTAMINATED WATER THAT WILL BE THERE FOR 2000 YEARS.

  • If the life of pipe is 50yrs , the whole pipe line should be replaced thats the cost of the company doing business and making millions , if not they should be fined every day until it is replaced ! !

  • Vice came to Michigan to do the documentary about me and the Enbridge cover up but the contract they wanted me to sign would have gave them rights to my footage. I asked Vice and this film crew to leave my house. I support this entire film and we do need to stop line 5. But I couldn't give Vice 100% worldwide rights to sell my footage that I post for free all over YouTube. And I wasnt going to give Vice legal rights to show the footage of my daughters deformity that they wanted to video tape. Yes Vice was mad. I asked them to leave and they left my house and it looks like they found others to interview. Which I'm glad. bigoilwhistleblower.com

  • Yeah… and then this whiny faggot will get out of the helicopter, finish preaching based on some theoretical model no doubt made by some whistle blowing worst case scenario nobody that was cherry picked for this "documentary", stop by the gas station to fill up his soccer mom V8 gas guzzler, and complain about gas prices. Give me a fucking break.

  • So what? Life goes on despite past oil spills. It will go on after future oil spills. All these tree hugging hippies use oil every day of there lives. Hypocrites!!! These people always want to tell other people what to do and how to live…But their advise and demands never involve them doing any different then the way their doing now!

  • This confirms to me the Obama radicals were behind this spill and Deep water horizon ( both same week )

  • Body language at 13:21 says, I’m an f’ing paid liar. If their pipelines spill into the Great Lakes, you might see some serious movement from the people. This is not a joke, these lake are so important and we need to get some major pressure on this company and our government to replace these lines.

  • at the first sign…how about 16 years past the lifespan of the pipe. shut it down and replace them… they should be double insulated. How about fix it before it fails…

  • Thank you to who ever made this. Its sad how much the people have had to suck up because the people who are to money hungry or to damn scared. It breaks my heart . There little P.R. guy talked a lot of shit in two minutes. At the first sign my ass . I mean do you think all these people are blind. You clearly did not keep up with it all these years so why dont you take the shit your trying to peddle and find the paper to whipe your mouth. I know how many call Michigan home. I also know how many people love them lakes and its some peoples homes. When I say home I mean born raised and it pisses us off. But what realy pisses a person off is seeing selfish ass holes try to feed us a line of horse shit. Shame get that shit out of the water cuz buy the time you see it needing repair our fresh water is gone and its not just Michigan its so much more. Thank you to who ever took the time to do this report. Its very well done . Keep up the good work.

  • You got to be kidding me!!! Why in the hell would you put a oil pipeline at the bottom of the great lakes!!! That needs to be stopped asap

  • All about them dead white president's!! Too much to count so they need the 18 wheeler scale's. 😈 #KOUNTUP

  • I bought some three inch used oil pipe for the ranch to make coral. The truck dropped it off, it looked ok, I let it sit for a few months before I used it. When I started to use it I noticed a great deal of flaking off of the outside of the pipe. Crude oil one thinks would never cause rust to form. It does, I used the pipe. But, never bought used oil pipe again. My lesson cost me money, but this old pipeline will rupture one day because it is old. Billions of wasted money, time, and a big disaster. Replace it and get it done before trouble occurs, that is only good business.

  • It's said how even now embridge is still not doing anything after 3 years there like a child with there favorite toy no matter how busted up it is they wanna play with it and keep it till it's too late to replace it

  • Lets see how much more service we can squeeze out of these expired old tubes; after all, it's only North America's precious/vital vast fresh water Great Lakes at stake 😩⏳⌛💥

    Have they not heard the latest buzz???….."Fresh water is The New Oil!!!!" That's what mankind gets for worshipping technology…and the worst is yet to come!!! Shut Off Valves needed on Corporate Greed…

  • So this was posted FOUR YEARS AGO … and conveniently it pops back up at the start of a general election cycle.

  • So this is 4.5 yrs old and has anything been done yet and what can we do to make sure it's addressed? It's got to be fixed fast or we are FUCKED BIG TIME!!!!!!!!

  • You never hear about them because they are safer than anything else. The US is now the Worlds Biggest Exporter of Energy and is Energy Independent.

  • Lack of keeping safety first, corporate greed takes over and the people do have a right to know what is going on with their water, lakes, streams.

  • So I have seen oil on vegetation before and it grows like crazy. The real killer is the producer water on vegetation. Nothing will grow where the produced water is but it goes crazy when oil is on it…. I don’t buy this propaganda! I wish they would stop lying about fossil fuel industry

  • Stop using the line. Run a neutralizer threw it and FORGET ABOUT IT. Bottom line is you have to put a life span on a pipe.This is the word of walt

  • OH come on how dumb are we….WE killed the GREAT LIKES with DDT …Paper pulp ..Dumping raw shit etc etc…and You can't believe their is a PIPE LINE under one of the SHIT HOLE LAKES…..What the fuck are you gonna do about it????? not a damn thing…but run your mouth and BITCH

  • Why is a Canada owned company running oil through the US?
    Why does Our Government put oil pipelines in our waterways, knowing there is a chance of rupturing?
    Why are we paying our Government to monitor there pipelines, plus the ones watching or monitoring seem to be more wealthier by saying nothing.
    GET RID OF THESES DEMOCRATS IN POWER.

  • I’ve welded on both of those lines and I’m here to tell you they don’t do enough to make sure of a release!!!!

  • Who in the F would put and run oil pipes in OUR lake? Another F co Nestle pays a couple of hundred bucks to Steal Billions of Water from America they bottle it up to sell and make BILLIONS in profit … either In Wisconsin or Michigan WTF???

  • If they say the information given by private enterprise is inacurate then show us the proof-give up your record's and become transparent! You freaking lieing piece of spokesperson sheeple trash!

  • Isn't it called Karma, a result of too many negative 'Petro-Dollar' deposits into the U.S. Karma Bank Account ????

  • State congressional parties have to held responsible for allowing this type of oil transfer. Big Business equals Big Money Federal regulations must be legislated and held accountable for this. The future will always suffer the mistakes of the past. Pipelines are just the tip of the iceberg.

  • Every industry exists because of a single reason. Before you point your finger and blame a company or a person remember to point the finger at yourself. Demand drives everything.

  • With how catastrophic a leak would be imo if the suggested life is 50 years it should be replaced every 40. Would be much cheaper with a spill

  • again..LIVING PROOF OF WASTE OF MONEY..+INSTEAD OFF TRYING TO STOP THE PIPILINE…YOU SHOUL,D ING.. a PLASTIC MADE FROM…THE WASTE OF PLASTIC..GARBAGE…MELT IT ALL DOWN AND …PUT A SHELL AROUND..

  • only hypocrites complain about oil pipelines while driving a car, using anything plastic or using electricity. give it up or shut up.

  • The real question is who is paying our government officials to keep this quiet? Pipeline, oil companies, or the ostrich that has his head buried in the dirt? This is big money corporations dictating loss of lives or how much money.

  • So, they’re pumping crude oil OUT of the ground and then, when/if there is a problem with the pipeline they’re spilling it back on the ground?

    Why don’t they just stop pumping it out of the ground?

  • The bigger problem in the Geat Lakes is the old nuclear facility on Lake Huron in the city of Kincardine Canada . This is where all the spent fuel rods and radioactive materials from all the other nuclear power plants in Canada send the radioactive waste . So if that plant leaks that spent fuel into Lake Huron , the plant does sit on the lake because the plant used to take water from the lake to use as a coolant , Imagine the devastation of the fresh water supply in North America . Chernobyl happened 33 years ago and it is still a wasteland and the half life of the radiation there is 10,000 years .The deepwater Horizon incident in the Gulf happened 9 years ago and it has been cleaned up fairly well . So the nuclear secret is potentially way worse than the oil spill . Plus the new line they are proposing is actually 230 feet under the ground under the water . !0,000 year half life of devastation or 10 years to clean up an oil spill which one is worse they are equal in possibility of occurring

  • 13:38 watch Jason Manshum stare out the window and think to himself…… "I'm totally getting fired over this video"…..😂😂😂😂😂

  • Should we start a go fund me to replace these? Weather we like it or now, the end user and tax payer will pay for whatever happens with these lines.
    All around the Great Lakes we need to heat our homes in the winter, time to stop presenting problems and start presenting solutions . Open to any better ideas

  • Is incredible how this companies build stuff wherever without thinking of any consequence and then just leave it and let it be and then spend millions trying to fix something that is unfixible

  • We are now talking about ifs with oil and gas, what if it happens ? Well ill tell you quit buying gas and it wont happen for sure morons !

  • I love Canada, i support oil lines. Look at america . This is big buisness .Who is stoping Canada?. These douch bags

  • The problem is that they can be indemnified in such a way as to end up not being liable for the actual full cost in real world figures.

    It would still be cheaper to replace the pipe than clean a spill, but as a movie once said they're hoping to land the plane just as it runs out of gas.

  • That's really sad ! The government has seen already what has happened and took years to clean up! Now this would be devastating to the whole sea! That will eventually effect the whole world

  • I worked as a land agent for Enbridge in Wisconsin and we were told to tell the landowners only one pipeline was going thru and actually it was two.

  • Why would man entertain something so destructive to nature despite how useful or conveint it is. FOOLS OF $GOD.

  • Slaughter the owners of the pipeline in a public pay per view event, the proceeds will pay for the removal of the lines and the slaughter of the banksters on live tv will give everyone a warm fussy feeling in their stomachs which will last for years and years. Its the ONLY solution. Slaughter the Banksters while we still can.

  • "If it isn't broke, WHY fix it…?"
    Pffft'!
    That about sums it up for this Company, (& most others in this field)…
    Easier and cheaper to SETTLE Lawsuits on any 'alleged' mishandling & subsequent Clean-up than it is to (just do the right thing), and replace or FIX IT!
    Tsk', tsk'! Shameful

  • I can't help the way I feel right now I want to kill you fuckn EPA motherfukers. I'm just satisfied that Trump defunded you fuckin EPA motherfukers. GO TRUMP!

  • The gates that you write about are called mainline block valves. They are installed at regularly spaced intervals across North America’s pipeline infrastructure – 2.5million miles in the USA and over 800,00 kilometre in Canada. The block valves are also installed more frequently in high consequence areas such as towns, water bodies, rivers, etc. This approach and technology is well established and in place everywhere today and has been for well over 50 years.

    The problem in 2010 was as follows: Enbridge operators noted a pressure decrease, which was not enough to trigger an automatic closure of the valves. The second line of defence and the control room operators thought it was a false alarm and kept on pumping for many hours.

    PHMSA, the government body that investigates pipeline incidents was less than impressed – to put it kindly. These are publicly available facts. Since then, all pipeline companies have stepped up their personnel training and put in place better procedures to slow down, shut down and investigate any anomaly.

  • They are really rolling the dice it needs be decommissioned cleaned and removed it shouldn't have ever been allowed it's been hit by a anchor drag already it doesn't matter whose fault it is whether it ruptures or gets hit by a ship anchor the aftermath will be the same a catastrophe to the environment

  • Fact: You use Oil.
    Fact: It has to be transported to you.
    Question: What is your answer to this situation?

    Alternative #1: Substitute the word "electricity" for the word "oil" in the above.

    Last Fact: The existence of this oil pipe line was and is absolutely no "secret".
