The project has expanded. After the April 1 anchor strike on Line 5, the story heated up like never before. So we returned to Mackinac, Traverse City, Petoskey, and elsewhere to follow the developments. It became clear that the story needs to be told as a three-part series, with the third and final installment coming this Fall. My crew and I were fortunate to catch these interviews with our candidates, including a surprise talk with Patrick Colbeck on Mackinac Island during the annual Policy Conference. This unplanned interview provided me with some critical insight into how a pro-business leader on the far right would build his Line 5 policy. Compare that with a progressive like Abdul El-Sayed, who wants an immediate shutdown of the line. It’s truly fascinating.
