Take Action

The Enbridge claim that the U.P. will freeze without the propane they supply is just one lie. The truth is Michigan is a high-risk, no reward shortcut for Canadian oil, 95% of which doesn't benefit Michigan. Line 5 threatens the Great Lakes every day it operates. Sign this petition to call on Gov. Whitmer 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 warming climate.

Call for real action to protect the Great Lakes from a disastrous 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.

    Also, Wisconsin has a land border with the Upper Peninsula. An entrepreneur from that state could offer propane to residents up there. We DON’T NEED the pipeline for that ! DECOMMISSION LINE 5 !!!

    This is a betrayal of the many who voted for you on the promise Line 5 would be gone. We’re sorly disappointed.

    I am not in favor of any kind of pipeline in the Great Lakes anywhere. When are these political leaders going to realize they are wrecking our Earth and our Earth can’t wait!

    I am a born and raised Michigan girl.

    We have sailed Lake Michigan, Huron for 30+years. Protect the lakes, Governor. It was one of your campaign promises. The people and during generations of constituents are counting on you.
