Line 5 has already spilled over a million gallons of oil since it started operating in 1953. Our Great Lakes are in danger every second it continues to operate. This is why Governor Whitmer ordered the shutdown of Line 5 in 2021.

Instead of complying with Governor Whitmer’s shut down order, the Canadian company, Enbirdge, that runs Line 5 wants to keep their oil flowing by building a tunnel under the Great Lakes. They need a permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to keep sending millions of gallons of oil through the heart of our Great Lakes.

Join The Sierra Club Foundation Canada on Sept. 1st for a virtual public hearing and tell the Army Corps of Engineers that the shut down order must be enforced; that there must be no oil tunnel.

The Sierra Club Michigan have been fighting Line 5 for years and won a shut down order as a result. Canadians are invited to help them enforce it and stop the tunnel. They need hundreds of people to join the virtual hearing on Sept. 1st and it is vital that Canadians stand up to this project too.
