Take Action

The Enbridge claim that the U.P. will freeze without the propane they supply is just one lie. The truth is Michigan is a high-risk, no reward shortcut for Canadian oil, 95% of which doesn't benefit Michigan. Line 5 threatens the Great Lakes every day it operates. Sign this petition to call on Gov. Whitmer & Legislature 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.

Call for real action to protect the Great Lakes from a disastrous 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.

    Our Fresh Water is infinitely more valuable than gold or oil!

    As for the labor union concerns, I believe there will be a lot of opportunity from the work involved in removing all of the 600 + miles of pipeline.

    Shut it down and remove it now. Do not drill into the lake bed of the Chippewa and Ottawa Indians last natural fishing ground. There should never be oil or gas lines in our Straits Area not now or ever.

    95% of the Canadian oil coming through Line 5 doesn’t benefit Michigan. Why should Michigan suffer all the risks and so little benefit.

    Enbridge failed to prevent a July 2010 spill on the Kalamazoo River. Can we trust them now to prevent future spills?

    I don’t trust oil companies with our environment, there is too much at stake here; more exactly TWENTY PERCENT of Earth’s freshwater is in the Great Lakes.
