Enbridge operates the world's longest crude oil and liquids pipeline system, with over 150,000 kilometers in pipelines in North America. It has come under repeated criticism by environmental and Indigenous groups for building its pipelines through tribal lands. Most notable are the Line 3 and Line 5 pipelines, which have been the subject of mass protests, including blockades, civil disobedience, and shutdowns. The company was found to have paid off Minnesota police to surveil and arrest protesters during 2021 protests against the company.

Line 5, almost 70 years old, runs through the Straits of Mackinac, which connect Lake Michigan to Lake Huron. A 2016 report to the U.S. Congress showed that the pipeline was missing bottom anchors that should hold it in place in 16 major locations. Engineering experts say that Line 5 is ‘one peak current event’ away from failure that could contaminate over 1,100 kilometers of the shoreline of the Great Lakes.
