Protect the Great Lakes, Shut Down Line Five: Update #2
by David Holtz
This is the second of occasional updates on the campaign to shut down line 5 and stop the flow of oil through the Straits of Mackinac.
If you are interested in a primer on Enbridge Line 5 through the Straits the Oil & Water Don’t Mix website is a good place to begin. For those who aren’t familiar with the campaign to shut down Line 5, it’s something I’ve been working on as a Sierra Club volunteer leader for nearly two years. This update, however, is mine and doesn’t necessarily represent Sierra Club’s views.
?Pipelines Aren’t the Only Thing Hidden in the Straits
Anyone looking for political leadership in the effort to shut down Enbridge Line 5 through the Straits of Mackinac might logically start with Congressman Dan Benishek, state Sen. Wayne Schmidt, and state Rep. Lee Chatfield, all of whom represent areas directly impacted if a pipeline ruptured in the Straits of Mackinac.
