Take action today to shut down the Line 5 pipelines and protect the Great Lakes from a potential pipeline disaste.
Line 5 carries nearly 23 million gallons of oil through a pair of 62 year old oil pipelines running along the bottom of the Mackinac Straits and threaten the Great Lakes, surrounding communities and Michigan’s economy. The pipelines are owned by Enbridge, Inc., the Canadian company responsible for the spill of 1 million gallons of heavy tar sands oil into the Kalamazoo River watershed in 2010.
Minnesota has been a national leader in protecting public health from toxic chemicals. In just eight years we’ve passed nine policies that protect families from BPA, formaldehyde, mercury and other toxins. Our ability to continue this leadership is under threat. Tell your Senators to make sure Minnesota retains this right.
