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

    All of my research thus far has concluded that the Great Lakes shoulder all of the risk with little or even no reward.

    line 5 is NOT worth the consequence of failure . Enbridge has proven itself to be untrustworthy and it should be prohibited from the state of Mi. and let’s start with eliminating line 5

    I can’t even imagine the fallout from a disastrous break or leak in this line. As a life long resident born and raised in Michigan and a very regular visitor to Lake Michigan I know if this disaster occured I would not care to wait for the courts to decide who’s footing the bill. It would be INEXCUSABLE and something that should have been watched daily and shut down when common sense dictated this line is far too old to be allowed to remain open. If the powers that be in my great state won’t watch out for our greatest treasure then they too, need to go. One way or another. DO THE RIGHT, RESPONSIBLE THING.

    Enbridge and Trump are cut from the same cloth—they both refuse to accept responsibility.Please add this action to the many other good moves you’ve made since becoming our governor. Decommission Lin5 5.

    Fire Enbridge today!!!!!

    Cannot trust Enbridge with history of spills and now their refusal to be accountable.

    Guess who’ll pay? Michigan Residents.

    A spill in the Straits of Mackinac isnt if but when.

    Line 5 is 67 years old.

    Lots of propane companies ready to step in immediately.

    You’re playing Russian Roulette with the Crown Jewel of Michigan.

    Doing nothing is a “Recipe for Disaster”

    Your only legacy will be stamped as “The Spill Govenor”

    Act Now Govenor Whitmer !!!!!!
