Gov. Gretchen Whitmer finds herself in a place where a Michigan governor should not be – at the center of an international treaty dispute with America’s closest friend and trading partner.

Last week, Canada formally invoked a never-before-used 1977 treaty with the United States that it says prevents Whitmer from shutting down the Line 5 pipeline. The line carries Canadian petroleum products beneath the Straits of Mackinac.

While Whitmer is fighting this. Ford is building a battery plant in Kentucky and Tennessee with 11,000 jobs with no unions and cheaper power. Think about that. Those jobs and the tax base gone..and she spends her time fighting a battle governed by a treaty with the Federal Government. Worst Governor ever
