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.

    Do NOT support this oil tunnel. The costs of failure to build or run it are not worth the risks to our precious fresh water. This insane proposal benefits a foreign oil company with a bad history of maintenance and truth telling. Why would you trust them with our great lakes?

    Our beautiful Great Lakes are too precious to take any chances with. So much tourism and money generated by them to risk not shutting down pipeline 5!!

    There is no economic justification to allow Enbridge to put in their tunnel through the Mackinac Straits! The risk is too great ! Shut down pipeline 5 now and forever!!

    I may live in Kansas but I was born and raised in Michigan and do not want to see our lakes destroyed by this pipeline.

    Fresh, clean water needs protection from any and all contamination, especially an inadvertant but foreseeable oil spill that would irredeemably pollute this precious resource for all future generations simply to satisfy fleeting energy profits of Enbridge’s few greedy Canadian corporate shareholders at the expense of US citizens. I feel we have rights to assert use of our territorial turf.
