Join us on a bus from Ann Arbor & Lansing to St. Ignace to attend the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) meeting in St. Ignace. The USACE is asking for public comment as they scope the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) of the proposed Enbridge Line 5 Tunnel project. If Enbridge doesn't get this permit, it can't build the tunnel.
A strong public turnout is important. You can be sure that Enbridge will send their oil industry flunkies to ask that this permit be approved, so we need to counter that input with the truth that this is a dangerous and misguided project.
Bring what you need. Upon arrival, you will have a chance to purchase food in St. Ignace, but it will be a short walk from the Little Bear East Arena. Wearing masks on the bus is required. This bus has two departure points on Thursday, September 8:
8:15 AM from Meijer, 3825 Carpenter Rd Ypsilanti, MI 48197
-Please park in the Park & Ride spaces located just north of the IHOP Restaurant or risk being towed
-Please arrive at 8:00 AM for an 8:15 AM Sharp Departure
-Estimated return time is 11:45 PM
10:15 AM from Meijer, 1350 W Lake Lansing Rd, East Lansing, MI 48823
-Please park in the Southeast corner of the lot, closer to the Lake Trust Credit Union
-Please arrive no later than 10:05 AM for a 10:15 AM Sharp Departure
-Estimated return time is 10:15 PM
Your Bus Captain is Lauren Sargent. Her contact info will be in the email you receive after your ticket purchase. The bus will depart St. Ignace at 7:00 PM.
As a bonus, bus passengers will receive a free NO LINE 5 OIL TUNNEL tee shirt to wear to the meeting. Let's show the press, who is sure to turn out, that the public clearly does not want this tunnel to be constructed!
