time-for-this-to-go.jpgEndless studies, backroom deals, and findings about the unconstitutionality of the tunnel law do not protect the Great Lakes from a Line 5 oil spill. A spill from a pipeline operated by a foreign corporation with a questionable track record would do irreparable harm to Michigan's citizens, tourism, and our blue economy.

Take Action Now and Endorse the Oil & Water Don't Mix Plan to Decommission Line 5

Help us make this stick! We need thousands of endorsements of this plan to show the powers that be that there is a way to take real action now to prevent disaster.

Make a difference now. Let's compel our current leaders to act with the knowledge that thousands support a plan that can actually work.

The Five Step Plan to Decommission Line 5

These are the highlights. Read the complete plan here.

  1. The Attorney General or Governor immediately files a legal action against Enbridge to enforce ongoing violations of the Easement Agreement pursuant to public trust law.
  2. Governor Whitmer directs the Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) to examine alternatives for providing propane to the Upper Peninsula.
  3. Governor Whitmer directs the MPSC to examine alternatives for transport of light crude oil produced in northern Michigan to refining operations.
  4. MPSC moves forward with alternatives to meet Michigan’s needs.
  5. Line 5 is disassembled and removed from the Straits and state has a plan for the removal of the rest of Line 5.

    Be proactive and shutdown the pipe. Don’t let this Canadian company decimate our Great Lakes and one of the largest fresh water reserves on the planet.

    This is a shame at this that people still don’t want to step up and say enough is enough. Well I will just keep letting donny run things, money is his own priority. Any person to through the country under the bus to palute the world.

    HOW LONG ARE WE GOING TO ALLOW THIS CANADIAN GESTAPO COMPANY TO DICTATE TO THE CITIZENS OF MICHIGAN. WE NEED TO WATCH EVERY POLITICIAN BECAUSE THEY ALL DANCE AROUND THIS ISSUE. THE ATTORNEY GENERAL TALKS TO SUIT HIS AUDIENCE. THE LT. GOVERNOR IS NOT CAPABLE OF ANY ORIGINAL THOUGHT AND HAS ESPOUSED BOTH FOR AND AGAINST ARGUMENTS REGARDING LINE 5. ENBRIDGE IS A MASSIVE PROPOGANDA MACHINE AND THEY WILL STOP AT NOTHING TO BUY OUR SHALLOW AND INSINCERE ELECTED AND APPOINTED OFFICIALS. THE DEQ AND THE EPA HAVE HAD THEIR LEGS CUT OUT FROM UNDER THEM BY THE TRUMP AND SNYDER ADMINISTRATIONS. THERE IS NO ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY IN EITHER STATE GOVERNMENT OR THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. THESE TWO REGULATORY AGENCIES HAVE BEEN DECIMATED BY THE SLASH AND BURN PHILOSOPHY OF DONALD TRUP. LINE 5 HAS TO GO NOW. WE NEED TO DO MORE THAN SEND MESSAGES TO THE POLITICIANS. IF THIS LINE IS NOT SHUT DOWN NOW IT IS IMPORTANT THAT ANY ONE IN OFFICE BE VOTED OUT IN NOVEMBER OR REMOVED. LINE 5 IS OPERATING DUE TO THE PROPOGANDA THAT ENBRIDGE SPREADS. THEY MAKE THE MONEY AND THE SACRED WATERS OF THE STRAITS ARE AT GREAT RISK. THE TIME FOR ACTION IS NOW. NO MORE MR. NICE GUY.
