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.

    How many people, animals (some endangered), plant species (some endangered), and how many acres of habitat vital are too many to throw away so that the few get even richer? They amass fortunes without even a thought given to who, what, and for how long the public is willing to to dispose of so that rich, not only get richer but more powerful. How much power (that we paid dearly for) will be needed for them to hang onto sufficient wealth to ensure that they won’t go to jail and will be able to peddle enough favors to never loose their positions of power and influence. We HAVE TO say ENOUGH! It STOPS right NOW!

    The impact and risk is too great to the level of activity and critical assets in the Straits near the connecting mainland shores and islands. Weather patterns also can be severe and prohibitive to managing that risk against the likelihood of an accident.

    Line 5 is older than Line 6 that dumped over 1 million gallons into the Kalamazoo River. Just think what this could do to the Great Lakes.

    I not only want Line 5 shut down, I am strongly opposed to Snyder’s plan to tie the MBA with a private Canadian company’s business! We, like many others, cross the bridge several times each week. When a problem arises, the NBA will be forced to hike the crossing fees to pay for Enbridges problem! We will stop crossing, as will many others, and it will have an adverse effect on the economy of the U.P. and the northern L.P.! A spill will devastate the lives of all of us!
