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 and do not allow an oil tunnel to be constructed.

* Yes, Enbridge Line 5 has already spilled 33 times and 1.1 million gallons.

    A tunnel would just be another place for Line 5 to leak. We need to focus on protecting our environment, not on how to profit from it. Water is Life!

    The Great Lakes are too precious a resource for us to risk. We need to be focused on green energy sources and not endangering our irreplaceable fresh water source.

    I own a summer vacation hone on the Straits of Mackinac. I am fearful that we will experience the same catastrophes as those on the Kalamazoo River have had. Enbridge promised the no spill, and when it happened promised to clean it up. Ask a Kalamazoo River resident how well they kept their promises.

    Our Great Lakes must be protected from all forms of pollution including possible future oil leaks from the Enbridge pipeline under the Straits of Mackinac. It must be shut down now.
