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 called and let them know that I live in Oakland County but have property on Lake Huron, in Northern Michigan and that I was concerned that the pipeline has passed its design-life, and needed to be shut down.


    Aide was very pleasant and assured me she would pass my request to the A.G.

    The person on the phone told me that nobody in their office could speak to why AG Schuette hasn’t used his authority to revoke the easement. They told me to check out his website to find his stance on the issue.

    I love Canada and have always had great respect for Canadians. I do not understand this behavior trying to hurt the Great Lakes of which they too border. Please shut down line 5 and save our lakes.

    I feel this is a fruitless effort but had to try. Does this person care at all for our state and our wonderful Great Lakes.

    This is an important issue so I called.

    I also called, at your request, about the House vote on dropping Michigan’s tough ballast water law and learned that since MI is the only Great Lakes state with those tough laws, it is an ineffective law that just diverts shipping to ports in other . If you want me to call gov’t officials, make sure it isa worthwhile issue. I would like a call back from you on this ballast water issue. Perhaps I don’t have the full story.
