Don't allow Enbridge to keep pumping oil through the Great Lakes and forever risk this little girl's ability to thrive in Michigan.

Attorney General Dan Nessel will bring legal action against Enbridge Line 5 on Thursday, but word is that Gov. Whitmer is not supporting this action.

Send a message to Gov. Whitmer: Either protect the profits of a Canadian oil pipeline company or the health of all Michiganders.


Make the Call & Report It Below

Call Gov. Whitmer: 517-373-3400

Use the following TALKING POINTS to help develop your message:

  • As Governor of Michigan, it is your job to protect the Great Lakes from a massive Line 5 oil spill. You ought to be leading on this issue instead of relying solely on the Attorney General.
  • Please stand up for the Great Lakes by revoking Enbridge’s easement to operate in the Straits of Mackinac and moving forward with decommissioning the Line 5 pipeline immediately.
  • The people of Michigan elected you to protect our Great Lakes, and we’re with you on this. Please don't give in to pressure from a foreign oil company and their allies who want to continue profiteering from the exploitation of our natural resources. The threats to the Great Lakes and climate posed by this pipeline are simply too great to accept.

Then REPORT YOUR CALL by adding your name here!

    I called the Gov’s office and spoke with a person who said she would pass my message to the Governor. I gave her my name and city and confirmed I voted for Whitmer because I believed she would champion my Lakes.

    I just called. Lines are open. I emphasized that Line 5 needs to be decommissioned. No tunnel. Keep her campaign promise.

    Only on the weekend able to leave voice message to the Governor, the AG’s office was closed for comments, til Monday.

    Said from Island, and we appreciate it, and hang tough, is tough environment to work toward what is a better future, but keep doing it, we are behind you, and every one will be, one day…

    Made personal comment to staff member at Governors office; said he’d pass it on to her. Unfortunately I was unable to talk with anyone in AG’s office (kept ringing once I got in the cue)

    Called both Governor Whitmer and AG Nessel. It took a few attempts to get through to both because of busy lines, but finally talked to a human being, in both cases, who listened to my opposition to Line 5 in the Great Lakes and pledged my support of the Governor and AG in opposing the pipeline. They assured me my calls had been noted and will be passed on.

    Made calls. Spoke to two real people who thanked me and told me they would pass on my message. I didn’t use script. I kept it short, identified myself as a MI resident who voted for both of them. Told them to keep up the good work on this very important project, perhaps the most important thing they’ll do in office.
