GOVERNOR WHITMER

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!

    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.

    Had no trouble leaving a message for Gov Whitmer. However when I called AG Nessel’s office they acted like it was very odd I wanted to leave a message, transferred me a couple times and then eventually gave me an email address. Which I sent a message too.

    I web posted Gov. Whitmer and emailed AG Nessel:


    Thank you for standing up for the Great Lakes and Michigan residents by opposing Enbridge Energy’s short-sighted scheme to build an oil tunnel under the Straits of Mackinac.


    I strongly urge you to continue to 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 as quickly as possible.


    The people of Michigan elected you to protect our Great Lakes and we are with you on this. Thank you and I strongly urge you to continue working to decommission Line 5. The threats to the Great Lakes and climate posed by this pipeline are simply TOO GREAT to accept.
