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.

Goal: 15,000 signatures

    The Great Lakes are Michigan’s Greatest Resource that needs to be protected now and for future generations. All life depends on clean water, and Michigan is unique in comparison to other states, being surrounded by fresh water. Hopefully, we have learned from the PFAS nightmare and will ensure the safety of our Great Lakes. Enbridge needs to be accountable in this endeavor.

    Enough is enough. The environmental risks that Canada has been placing on Michigan need to end ASAP. The violations and number of lines from Enbridge would never be allowed in their home country…… Canada. The USA has a birds nest of Enbridge lines . Enough! Deny the tunnel as well. Shut down Line 5 and all alternative proposals , Enbridge has had violations since 1953.

    please stop Embridge and their disstructive ways of profiting off of US citizens by their illegal transportation of oil, without being held accountable for damages incurred from oli spills.

    The consequences of a spill in the great lakes is more detrimental than Enbridges loss of profit, or the financial investments into finding other sources of propane and light oil.

    Dear Governor Whitmer,

    Pollution may seem invisible when it’s under hundreds of thousands of gallons of water, but “the butterfly effect” is real, and we all suffer from toxic enablers like Line 5. Thank you for your time.
