Missing Coating Line 5The Canadian oil transport company, Enbridge, knew that the coating on their Line 5 pipeline has been damaged for at least three years. But time and time again, they have lied by telling us and the State of Michigan that their pipeline that runs through the heart of the Great Lakes is in "like new condition." 

Stop the Lies - Shut down Line 5

The State says they are frustrated by the Enbridge lies. But that is not enough. Attorney General Bill Schuette has the authority - today - to shut down the pipeline. It's not enough to be frustrated. Now is the time for him to act.

Monday, November 6 is a day of action. Make a phone call to AG Schuette and report your call below. It's time for all of us to demand that he revoke Enbridge's easement to use the Great Lakes and begin the process of decommissioning Line 5 now.

Will You Make the Call?

Call AG Schuette's office: 517-373-1110

Use the following TALKING POINTS to help develop your message:

  • Enbridge has repeatedly been caught with a failing, incurable Line 5 which it can no longer fix, and is covering it up. Last week they admitted they knew about missing protective coating in 2014 and didn't tell the state until this year.
  • It's a double standard to give this company chance after chance to comply with the law when the average citizen doesn't get such breaks.
  • The Attorney General has the authority and mandate to revoke the easement under which Enbridge is operating -- the public owns the waters and Enbridge is a guest. It’s up to Enbridge to prove it can operate It's time for the Attorney General to act.

    I got thru at 10:50 AM and voiced my opinion that a 1954-era pipeline that has not been maintained and is of no monetary value to the State of Michigan because of a free easement should be shut down.

    I asked the person who answered the phone whether Schuette had done anything yet about shutting down line 5, and she said she didn’t know.

    Busy signal 2X, got through on the third redial – asked if the AG was planning on taking any action to shut down the pipeline, and of course the rep “does not know at this time”.

    After several tries, I was put on hold during which time a Pure Michigan Ad talked about our beautiful shoreline and going fishing, and other wonderful things. Then a person answered who did not identify herself, and I told her about the ad – it was the perfect lead-in to my comments which ended with my request that Mr Schutte should revoke the easement and begin to decommission Line 5.
