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.

    Michigan has in its powers the opportunity and the obligation to do the right thing : SHUT DOWN the dangerous Line 5 pipeline before it’s too late. It will be a disastrous and sad day when this pipe breaks. The proposed tunnel is no good solution and we owe nothing to Enbridge to continue its lucrative cash flow at the expense of losing our Great Lakes.

    No Tunnel and No Line 5 in the Straits of Mackinac.

    Do the right thing!

    Bobby jo TESSMAN . Every year my family and I go vacation on the Lake Michigan Recreation area. In the last two years since Trump administration the amount of pollution on the beach had become staggering you have to clean a spot to lay in the sand. Mostly old balloons ,plastic bottles and cigarette butts. Please don’t allow oil to penetrate our drinking water and destroy what makes our state great.

    Dear Gov. Whitmer,

    I moved here from Chicago 4 years ago to give my children a healthier environment in which to grow up. The Great Lakes are one of our most important natural resources, and the need to protect them is at the top of my list of concerns, not only for our generation, but particularly for that of our children and grandchildren.

    My vote for you last fall was in part due to your commitment to remove Line 5 from the Straits of Mackinaw, and I spent a day in Lansing last November visiting legislators to oppose a tunnel.

    Please use the power of your office to help protect the Great Lakes.

    Thank you,

    Cindy Kamp

    Michigan is not here to serve Canada at the risk of our great lakes. End this once and for all..our tourism and beautiful state depend on the health of our waters.
