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.

    I voted for you in part because I thought you would shut down Line 5.

    These are our GREAT LAKES and as humans it is our responsibility to save them from our ‘selfish’ selves. No to a Tunnel. The last break it took them hours to respond- Look at the Kalamazoo break that effected the river and the MASSIVE amount of damage done- Enbridge does NOT care about our Michigan! We need people- elected Politicians to Protect Our State and the People in it!!! Do your F’n job or were you just lying like the last one?

    Good luck on getting Whitmer to do the right thing – her true colors seem to be bleeding through.
