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 phoned the Governor’s Office, and had the opportunity to express my gratitude to a courteous member of her staff for her courageous stance regarding the (eventual) decommissioning of Enbridge’s Oil Line #5. Let’s hope that the legal challenges are surmounted, and that our precious resource is preserved safely and indefinitely. Bravo, Gov. Whitmer.
