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 urge you to take action now to decommission Line 5 and do not allow an oil tunnel to be constructed.

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

    ALL new pipelines must not be built. Everyone knows this. It is morally corrupt to continue spewing and spilling fossil fuels.

    Our fourth grade students in Chicago, have a campaign to support shutting down Line #5 We do not understand why Canada is allowed to violate USA treaties with Indigenous Tribes and First Nations in the Lake Michigan Water Basin. We also know that oil is damaging to the echo system and students have made a video and designed their own t-shirt, for proceeds to go to Oil and Water Don’t Mix. We know that the outcome of this request to shut down Enbridge pipelines all over, and particularly line 5 will affect our access to safe, clean, affordable drinking water. Enbridge is investing in sustainable energy in France. Why should we accept anything less?
