Vatic Note: Lets see....... fishermen and oil workers foreclosing because of the gulf blowout and now after the crops are destroyed by the oil rushing into the breadbasket of American and killing the fish in the Great Lakes that are connected, I suspect BANKERS WILL OWN ALL THE LAND ALONG THE COAST OF THE GULF AND THE GREAT LAKES AREA ALONG WITH A LOT OF FARMS WHO WON'T BE ABLE TO MAKE THEIR PAYMENT once the crop is destroyed (I say, what a haul for only 3 months destructive work indeed, Board of directors of those wall street brokerage houses are probably happy campers) . Hmmm, another false flag again? Yes, since they refused to shut off the oil when notified. CRIMINAL PROSECUTION NOW is the only option for the government and if they don't do it, they are in on it.
In the midst of all of this its still prudent to take the time and make observations. Lets look first at the "TIMING". It was right after the oil spill in the gulf was announced to be under control. The very next day this happens. Then we check on the company involved and it turns out, even hours after being notified of the situation, the COMPANY DID NOT SHUT OFF THE FLOW OF THE OIL, knowing full well this was a major environmental disaster. That is close to evidence of INTENT which is the basis for criminal considerations on this blow out. A million gallons into Lake Michigan is not a "LEAK", its a "BLOW OUT" Then we ask, "if they are beginning already to act like BP, then is there a connection? Well, we could not find a list of the "partners" of Enbridge Partners, but we did check the board of directors and your going to love what we found, yes an ex big wig from BP, shock:
Dan Westbrook was elected a director of EECI and EEQ in October 2007 and is a member of the boards' Audit, Finance & Risk Committees. From 2001 to 2005, Mr. Westbrook served as president of BP China Gas, Power & Upstream and as vice-chairman of the board of directors of Dapeng LNG, a Sino joint venture between BP subsidiary CNOOC Gas & Power Ltd. and other Chinese companies. He held executive positions with BP in Argentina, Houston, Russia, Chicago and The Netherlands before retiring from the company in January 2006. From August 2002 to June 2004, Mr. Westbrook served as director and chairman of the finance committee of the International School of Beijing. He also serves on the board of Knowledge Systems Inc., a privately held U.S. company that provides software and consultant services to the oil and gas industry, and Synenco Energy Inc., a Calgary-based oil sands company.
Michigan Oil Spill Among Largest In Midwest History: Kalamazoo Spill SOAKS Wildlife (VIDEO)

As the Gulf Coast deals with the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history, the Midwest is now facing an oil spill of its own.
A state of emergency has been declared in southwest Michigan's Kalamazoo County as more than 800,000 gallons of oil released into a creek began making its way downstream in the Kalamazoo River, the Kalamazoo Gazette reports.
The trouble began Monday at 9:45 a.m., when an oil pipeline owned by Enbridge Liquids Pipelines sprung a leak in Marshall Township. Enbridge Energy is a subsidiary of Calgary, Canada based Enbridge Inc., the Detroit Free Press reports. According to the company, it is the largest transporter of oil from western Canada.
The cause of the leak is under investigation, and the pipeline has been shut down--but not before it did some serious damage. U.S. Rep. Mark Schauer called the spill the "largest oil spill in the history of the Midwest." Officials are suggesting all water activities in the Kalamazoo River be put on hold until the situation is resolved--and some are fearing contamination of local water supplies:
The Battlecreek Enquirer reports:
Besides the noxious fumes coming from the river, health officials already are worried that the oil spill could have lasting health effects. While he said that the site of the spill was a wetland -- which has a natural clay barrier that prevents water from seeping too far into the ground -- Calhoun County Health Officer Jim Rutherford said there was a concern that the magnitude of the spill could spell trouble for the area's water supply.
"It's not going to show up right now, but over time there is a real possibility that it will leach into the water supply," Rutherford said. "I think it's inevitable that, with as much as has leaked, that it will get into the water supply."
Residents living near Battle Creek and the Kalamazoo River valley have also reported strong odors and oil-soaked wildlife in the area.
