Representatives want to know what their constituents want - especially at a state level. When you take the time to write to your representative, they listen!

It's going to take all of us to inform our lawmakers of the threat posed by Line 5 through the Straits of Mackinac. 

We encourage you to send a letter to your representative about Line 5 today.

    The potential of a rupture in line 5, not only in the straights of Mackinaw but also along the northern coats of lake Michigan, is far to great to allow the line to continue running. All of Michigan and every state out to the Atlantic would be affected. Current technology would allow different means of oil transportation and even an alternative to using oil in the first place. There is no need to risk the largest environmental disaster this country has ever seen. Especially in one of the most important areas in the world. Contaminating these waters would destroy the ecosystem for decades to come. Please do your best to shut down this line and propose other means of transporting this oil or at least rebuild the line so if a rupture did indeed happen it would not destroy the area everyone in this country holds dear.

    Think of the beauty of the great lakes and no oil spills, pretty grand. Oil company’s average at least 330 spills a year; it is dangerous problem! Shut down all underground oil.

    A potential accident of Enbridge Line 5 in the Straits of Mackinac could potentially destroy hundreds of communities and turn most of Michigan into a ghost town environment. Act now to save water, property, and possibly lives.

    The magnitude of this potential spill that’s only a matter of time should far exceed the work and money lost of shutting down this line under the straights. This is our lives. The Great Lakes are our life. Please shut down these lines under the Straights of Mackinaw. Have a soul.

    I wrote both my State Senator and State Representative. I saw the lines pulled across the Straits in 1953. I know how old they are. They can definitely be potentially disastrous.
