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 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 warming 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.

    I’ve own a Monarch Waystation in West Michigan with acres of wildflowers for our pollinators, who are in decline as of late.

    And I cringe at the thought of the ticking time bomb that is line 5 and the legacy that we leave behind, it all boils down to next quarters profit.

    This pipeline is NOT safe. It should be shut down. Enbridge is not safe steward of the environment. It has a lousy track record for fining spills quickly. It should NEVER have been given the rights to send CANADIAN OIL through Michigan to CANADIAN refineries.. There are alternative ways to get propane to the UP.

    Being from the Upper Peninsula originally, I can see how my small fishing village relies so heavily on our Great Lakes to support them. We can’t let another spill happen and endanger the livelihood of our citizens (primarily the Native American population in my town!) Thank you for your consideration!

    As a concerned citizen, I am deeply against this. We need no more pipelines in our waters. So much has Already happened. Ask Kalamazoo how their river is now for example. If oil companies really were accountable for upkeep, repairs & should there be a disaster clean up, that would be at least something. Since we have yet to see this, best to keep our waters clear.
