SIGN THE PETITION

This is how we make our government accountable to the people. We'll deliver your signature in January 2020 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.

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

    Also home owner in Harbor Springs Michigan. Avid sailor and fisherman. There is no possible benefit or profit that can justify jeopardizing our fresh water. We can live without all other things, but not without fresh water. These lines are from Canada and to Canada and have no right to threaten United States fresh waters and people. They are our waters, not some irresponsible oil companies entitlement. The energy source is outdated and subsidized. There would be no oil profiteers if they were held accountable to pay for there environmental and human health repercussions.

    Please get rid of Line #5 completely!! It will kill our recreation as we know it! It will kill our fish! It holds no benefit for Michigan or USA just pollution. The company in charge is usually asleep at the wheel as they proved leaving pipes behind, etc. Please stand with us and eliminate this Line 5. Thank you.

    Do not sacrifice the safety of the Great Lakes by continuing to pursue putting a pipeline through a tunnerlunder the Great Lakes. This is not worth the risk of contaminating this fresh water system for generations to come. Remove the current pipeline and don’t build another one!
