SIGN THE PETITION

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.

    Why assume the risk for a company that has proven it cares more about profits then keeping our great lakes for being ruined for generations!!

    Trusting Enbridge is akin to asking a pedophile to babysit your child. No thanks!! They both have a HORRIBLE track record.

    My home is on the Straits of Mackinac. This is our chance to stop Enbridge and to help protect clean Michigan waters. We should ALL know better by now. Our Native American people know. Please listen to common sense and stop big oil money from making more horrible environmental choices for our children.

    There is no economic justification to allow Enbridge to put in their tunnel through the Mackinac Straits! The risk is too great ! Shut down pipeline 5 now and forever!!

    Line 5 Pipeline and a tunnel on the public bottomlands of the Mackinac Straits is irresponsible and would damage the water, commerce and recreational use of this public water and land.

    Enbridge has a terrible track record. Line 5 has 8 known violations with the state of Michigan. Enbridge is responsible for the largest land based oil spill in history and has destroyed the Kalamazoo River and beyond. Shut down Line 5 now before it is too late! Water is Life
