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.

    when all the animals have been hunted,

    when all the waters are polluted,

    when all the air is unsafe to breathe,

    only then will you discover you cannot eat money.”

    Please focus our efforts on renewable energy not continuing risking carbon polluting oil that is risking our very sensitive lakes, streams and marshes.

    Enough is enough. This line 5 must go! We don’t need a tunnel we need to just get rid of it. Do the job you were elected to do.

    With little or no benefits to the State of Michigan, and all the benefit going to a foreign company and country there should be no outcome but total shutdown and removal of pipeline 5A. Let Enbridge run their pipeline through Canada to Sarnia, not via Michigan, and avoid endangering the Great Lakes.
