The Enbridge Line 5 pipeline runs across northern Wisconsin into the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. It is the subject of a lawsuit filed by the Bad River Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians. A proposed settlement made public last week by Enbridge has drawn criticism from tribal Chairman Mike Wiggins Jr.

Enbridge Energy Co. has offered the Bad River Tribe more than $24 million to settle a lawsuit the tribe filed over expired leases on a pipeline that runs across tribal land.

Tribal Chairman Michael Wiggins Jr. told the Ashland Daily Press that the tribe rejects the offer, which he considers “Enbridge smoke and bluster.”
