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.

    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!

    I don’t trust Enbridge any farther than I can throw them. The only interest they have in this issue is their own. Once that pipeline blows we will be the ones who suffer. It will be generations before we recover.

    An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. There’s enough evidence that this pipeline presents a huge risk to international and state citizens and economies. If more people saw the implications of a disaster in these precious waterways they would march in the streets like many did to stop underground nuclear testing in Alaska nearly 50 years ago. What’s more this line violates laws in the US and Canada under Public Trust Doctrine.
