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.

    It’s far past time that people started to support and vote for public servants that actually represent the public. The fact that MAC has come out in support of a toxic corporation is no surprise. Anyone who has taken money or has used their position as an elected official to advance this disaster in the making should be voted out of office. Nothing is going to change until these corporate enablers start losing elections – Dems or Republicans it no longer makes a difference.

    Enbridge, the dirty oil company from Canada. Spending millions lobbying the people and politicians in Michigan so they can build the Line 5 tunnel through the Straits of Mackinac. Enough said.

    Oil & water really, really don’t mix! We must ALWAYS remember multiple millions of people DRINK the water from all of the Great Lakes system! This issue could very well turn out to be a life or death issue concerning millions of people, and wildlife. Let’s be brave, and finally put a stop to future pollution in the Great Lakes water system. Just say no to Enbridge !

    No, no, no tunnel. We need to protect the Great Lake and shut down Line 5 NOW. Deal with the tunnel idea separately. By the time 7-10 years go by, while a deal is looked at it, it will come to light that we will not need any of the 5-10% of that Canadian oil!

    Enbridge has a history of lying. Politicians have a history of game-playing, and the earth suffers. We as citizens have to use less of the resources that destroy the earth. Time is of the essence. There will be NO going back when disaster happens.

    When the full wrath of climate change comes, these lakes will be the most valuable resource on the planet. The fact this is even up for debate and that the politicians in Michigan are playing with fire and putting short term profits ahead of the vitality of this region for future generations makes me ashamed.

    Michigan needs to do all it can to protect the great banked reserves of water resource surrounding the state. In another generation water will vastly eclipse fossil fuels in its importance to the survival of humankind. Enbridge is not concerned about the long game, but our politicians should be. Line 5 is the next Deepwater Horizon or Exxon Valdez event coming to climax. Enbridge will go into receivership, regrets only, while principals take comfort in the elitist benefits they have accumulated by bilking the state and the public.
