SIGN THE PETITION

This is how we make our government accountable to the people. We'll deliver your signature to tell Gov. Whitmer the will of the people is to #ShutDownLine5

Building a tunnel for Enbridge Line 5 through the Straits of Mackinac is not a solution to protect the Great Lakes, 400 other water bodies including Lake Michigan, or our dangerously overheating climate.

Oil BurnSign to protect the Great Lakes from *another Line 5 oil spill

Dear Gov. Whitmer & Michigan’s Legislature:

An oil tunnel through the public bottomlands of the Straits of Mackinac won’t protect the Great Lakes from a 645-mile long aging Line 5 oil pipeline that has leaked at least 33 times into Michigan's environment. Even when its oil isn't spilling into the water, it adds to our climate crisis when burned by spilling carbon into the atmosphere every day. The time to end the threat of a catastrophic oil pipeline rupture is now. Instead of leaving a vulnerable and hazardous oil pipeline operating in the Mackinac Straits for years while trusting a dishonest Enbridge to protect the Great Lakes, I support your action to revoke the Line 5 easement and urge to you prevent an oil tunnel from being constructed.

* Yes, Enbridge Line 5 has already spilled 33 times and 1.1 million gallons.

    What the Canadian government is doing to the indigenous peoples of this country is disgusting and needs to be stopped. We have stripped away too much of their culture already and destroyed so many of their ancestral sites as it is. It’s time we treated them with love and compassion as they have way more to teach then the corporation of Canada.

    It is clear that for the sustainability of humanity and life, we need to reduce fossil fuel use. Building additional fossil fuel infrastructure that perpetuates the continuance of fossil fuels does not make sense. On top that, Enbridge’s safety record is dismal and their vision of the future is not the future I want nor the one we need.

    Reroute their “safe” tunnel a little bit to the East until they hit Canadian land, then proceed South. Should be no problems as it is Canada’s soil. If Enbridge feels that their tunnel is so safe, let them place it over their land, not Michigan waters.
