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.

    Please! Please! Please! Remove, and keep out – oil from our Great Lakes watershed! Our environmental health and human livelihoods depend upon it. Lead on behalf of human health (and happiness) instead of capitalism.

    I am very concerned for the impacts this pipeline could have on the sensitive Straits of Mackinac and the entire Great Lakes basin. Line 5 also runs through the area of Wisconsin where I live, and Enbridge’s actions have not been respectful toward local communities and indigenous groups in Wisconsin. Enbridge’s track record goes to show that it is not a trustworthy company. Please protect the precious waters of the Great Lakes from catastrophic damage.

    I was born and raised in south east Michigan, earned a bachelor’s degree from NMU in Marquette, have crossed the Straits more times than could be counted, and believe protection of The Great Lakes is a must!

    Line 5 serves Enbridge and the companies pumping oil through aging pipes along our pristine landscape and fresh water NOT the residents of Michigan.

    I grew up in Michigan and my family still lives there, so this concerns me. Also, we are all connected and interdependent, so an oil spill in the Great Lakes hurts e everyone. Climate change caused by fossil fuels hurts everyone. Pollution from use of petroleum products is linked to increased risk of death from COVID 19. Get rid of this pipeline please!

    Enbridge has proven lack of transparency a d concern for the well being of our water and the health of our people. They put profits above truth and health. Please STOP THE TUNNEL! Stop Embridge from risking our water, our health, our economy, our state’s beauty.

    The cumulative negative impact of Enbridge’s pipeline ruptures of oil into and on Michigan’s land, rivers and lakes is monumental. The possibility of oil rupturing into the Straits of Mackinac is totally unacceptable. Allowing this possibility to remain is unforgivable. We have alternatives. Fulfill the promise of you campaign. SHUT DOWN LINE 5.
