Last Day to Comment on Enbridge’s Line 5!

Help Prevent a Catastrophic Great Lakes Oil Spill!

Last June, the preliminary Line 5 Alternatives Study was released, and more than 23,000 people submitted their comment calling for the shutdown of Line 5 as the only alternative that will truly protect the Great Lakes from an oil spill. The revised and final Alternatives Study has just been released, which has triggered a second comment period that is now open.

If you’re not familiar with this issue, here’s an overview. Line 5 pipelines come in  from Canada and take a shortcut through Michigan and the Straits of Mackinac before crossing back into Canada near Port Huron. The Straits of Mackinac is one of the most ecologically sensitive areas in the world. The Great Lakes are home to 20 percent of the fresh surface water on the planet and  provides drinking water to thousands of people.

The deadline for public comments is TODAY, December 22, 2017, so please, join these supporters and sign on and submit your comment today via this online form. Let’s prevent a devastating oil spill in the Straits of Mackinac.
