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.

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

    This is not acceptable. We can’t drink or farm with pollution. Is oil & oil revenues really more important than the health of Michigan?

    This tunnel is NOT in the interest of Michigan’s economy, our environment, or the working people of this state! Non fossil fuel options will do much to improve our economy, environment, and create more lasting jobs.

    Enough is enough! As a Tax paying citizen I want to see how much Mackinaw City collects in tax off this enterprise and every other revenue contributed to state and local governments. So far Lee and Wayne and the Governor have testified there is none. How can that Be? I thought businesses and citizens pay taxes! Food for thought, wheres the money?
