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.

    This pipeline unlawfully cuts across native land!! Don’t risk our largest reservoir of fresh water in the country for corporate gain! This can not be ignored any longer and I have no idea how this is not a nationwide issue.

    The company would be just fine without using our State as a shortcut to Canada. Further, we don’t even need this pipeline’s resources and even if we used some of their resources now, we need to get off of fossil fuels as a society rapidly anyways.

    Charles Houghten – it’s time to stop the flow of oil under the Straits of Mackinac and for Canada to reroute the pipeline for their needs outside of the USA. No tunnel for fossil fuels!
