Missing Coating Line 5The Canadian oil transport company, Enbridge, knew that the coating on their Line 5 pipeline has been damaged for at least three years. But time and time again, they have lied by telling us and the State of Michigan that their pipeline that runs through the heart of the Great Lakes is in "like new condition." 

Stop the Lies - Shut down Line 5

The State says they are frustrated by the Enbridge lies. But that is not enough. Attorney General Bill Schuette has the authority - today - to shut down the pipeline. It's not enough to be frustrated. Now is the time for him to act.

Monday, November 6 is a day of action. Make a phone call to AG Schuette and report your call below. It's time for all of us to demand that he revoke Enbridge's easement to use the Great Lakes and begin the process of decommissioning Line 5 now.

Will You Make the Call?

Call AG Schuette's office: 517-373-1110

Use the following TALKING POINTS to help develop your message:

  • Enbridge has repeatedly been caught with a failing, incurable Line 5 which it can no longer fix, and is covering it up. Last week they admitted they knew about missing protective coating in 2014 and didn't tell the state until this year.
  • It's a double standard to give this company chance after chance to comply with the law when the average citizen doesn't get such breaks.
  • The Attorney General has the authority and mandate to revoke the easement under which Enbridge is operating -- the public owns the waters and Enbridge is a guest. It’s up to Enbridge to prove it can operate It's time for the Attorney General to act.

    As a lifelong citizen of Michigan, (nearly 64 yrs) I requested a call back to discuss my issue with the States Attorney General and was told by the person answering the phone that calling Michigan citizens back is not something he does.

    Only hope the decomissioning of the Enbridge Line 5 Pipeline happens before we have a disastrous break and oil spill.

    Demanded that Schutte immediately revoke the easement that allows Embridge to operate Line 5. The government has spent long enough and studied the issue as a delaying tactic. We know that Embridge has lied repeatedly in meetings with the citizens of Michigan. As a taxpayer and employer of Mr. Schutte, I demand that he do the job he was hired and is paid to do and that is to serve and protect the people of Michigan not the businesses of Canada. I have attended various meetings with Enbridge and know them to be liers. Enough tax money has been spent studying the issue. It is time to act.

    The water that is surrounding the pipeline is critical to the State of MI. Everyones livelihood depends on the pristine waters of the Great Lakes. Shutting down that pipeline NOW is URGENT. An oil spill would be catastrophic !
