Global News in Canada shows that the Canadian government is calling for a 1977 treaty to halt the closure of the Enbridge Line 5 pipeline after Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer promised to shut down its taps due to environmental problems.
The pipeline carries oil from western Canada to southwestern Ontario, but passes through Michigan along the Great Lakes shared by both countries.
Eric Sorensen observes how the bitter dispute is turning Canada against the United States, as well as economists against environmentalists.
Relations between the countries of Canada and the United States have historically been extensive, given the shared border of the 2 countries, which is the longest in the world, and ever growing cultural and economic ties. The shared historical and cultural heritage has resulted in one of the most stable and mutually beneficial important international relations in the world.
For both countries, the level of trade with each other is at the top of the combined annual import-export total. Tourism and migration between the 2 neighboring nations increased the ratio.
The United States has a population that is approximately 9.25 times larger.
Throughout history, the so-called War of 1812 has seen invasions across the border. In 1815 the war ended with the unchanged and demilitarized border, as well as the Great Lakes.
