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.

    I called The Governor’s office and said (as a retired teacher) that I was opposed to Line 5 in any form.. The office took my personal info to pass on. I stated there was no greater security issue (Fed and State) than our fresh water and that NO deal whatsoever was of utmost importance for Michigan and the US. The deal struck by former Gov. Granholm with Nestle was a horrific example and stupid for Michigan.
