NWF Produces Video on Line 5, Local Businesses


The National Wildlife Federation has produced another video in a series on Enbridge’s Line 5 pipeline in the Straits of Mackinac. This short clip focuses on the impact a potential spill from Line 5 could have on northern Michigan businesses and the regional economy.

The video features three northern Michigan business owners who speak out against Line 5: Chris Shepler, owner of Shepler’s Mackinac Island Ferry in Mackinaw City; Rich Bergmann, owner of the Lake Charlevoix Brewing Company; and Noah Marshall-Rashid, co-owner of American Spoon Foods in Petoskey.

The National Wildlife Federation has released similar videos recently that feature Larry Bell, Bell’s Brewery owner, and former Congressman Mark Schauer. You can watch all videos and learn more at, and watch the most recent video below.
