    Line 5 Shutdown - Thank Gov. Whitmer

    Thank You Governor WhitmerGovernor Whitmer, along with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and Attorney General Dana Nessel, have revoked the easement that allowed Enbridge to operate Line 5 in the Great Lakes. This is historic. If ultimately successful, this would be the first time an operating pipeline has ever been shut down.

    It is rare that a politician has the guts to stand up to the most powerful industry on the planet. Please join us in thanking Governor Gretchen Whitmer for taking a politically risky stance on behalf of all Michiganders, and for doing what must be done to protect future generations.

    We'll send your name and comments as a thank you card.

    Governor Whitmer:

    Thank you so much for your audacious action for the Great Lakes, the climate, and the people of Michigan. Thank you for applying public trust law, listening to the science of climate change, and for hearing the thousands of dedicated citizens and organizations that worked to elevate this issue in a way that will protect our environment for generations to come.

    Thank you for taking the courageous steps to shut down Line 5!

    Greetings,


    The League of Women Voters – Oakland Area is hosting an event that may be of interest to your members. We would be glad to welcome all. If possible, please promote this event on your website, facebook page, newsletter or other means.


    Below is some more information. Thank you for your consideration.

    LWV-OA Program Committee


    Oil and Water Don’t Mix

    Tuesday, April 2, 7:00 to 8:30 PM

    Bloomfield Township Public Library

    1099 Lone Pine Rd (at Telegraph Rd), Bloomfield Township


    The League of Women Voters – Oakland Area will host Sean McBrearty, Coordinator, Oil and Water Don’t Mix. The event will be held at the Bloomfield Township Library Auditorium from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.


    Sean will speak about environmental concerns relating to the Enbridge Oil Company Line 5, the 655-mile-long pipeline which carries synthetic crude oil through Michigan. Of special concern is the damaged pipeline which has been submerged in the Straits of Mackinac since 1953 and is still in use today.


    Sean will also update the audience about the status of Governor Whitmer’s January 2, 2019 directive to Attorney General Nessel to investigate legislation passed during the lame duck session following the November election. The Governor’s directive authorizes investigation into whether the legislation, which approved construction of a Line 5 Tunnel under the Straits, complies with the state constitution.


    Finally, Sean will talk with the group about newly created volunteer opportunities with Clean Water Action in Oakland County.
