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.

    Greed – Pure and Simple – I can’t believe that these Politicians will put The Great Lakes at risk for future generations, just to line their pockets.

    That my fellow Michiganders is about as DIRTY as it can get. They should ALL be ashamed, and bounced out of Lansing.

    Response and follow up to past oil spill events clearly demonstrates that Enbridge cannot be trusted and is a poor steward of the environment.

    Enbridge has failed us several times before, they’ll do it again. we could lose so much from a catastrophe in the straits of mackinaw. Think even in terms of fishing and tourism, its not a good risk to be taking.
