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.

    Shut down Line 5 means shut it down. No tunnels. Shut it down.

    We count on our elected officials to act in the best interest of the public, not of corporations. Enbridge does not deserve to run Line 5 now or to create a more permanent replacement. Shut it down now and stop negotiating with them for a tunnel.

    Time is not on our side. Enbridge’s proven unreliability to provide a prevention plan in protecting the waters or soils from leaks is proof. Their clean-up operations ae unacceptable. The only way to ensure the protection of the water is to SHUT IT DOWN NOW.
