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.

    Keeping Line 5 open is like loading the gun to shoot ourselves.

    Saving our fresh water supply is a move to secure life on our beautiful planet for many generations to come close all avenues to reopen any negotiations in the future.

    My family has had homes/tents in Michigan since 1914. My great aunts helped settle the area on the east coast of Burt Lake, and my husband and I now own that property. We also lived in Marshall, MI for 14 years where Enbridge left an horrific impact. Line 5 is a very short distance from our cottage; this line needs to be shut down followed by thorough cleansing of all the trash it leaves behind. Line 5 is a disgrace; Enbridge needs to stop messing around and do what is right: NO OIL lines in the straits!
