Learn more about the growing campaign to close Enbridge Line 5 beneath the Straits of Mackinac.
Line 5 is a pair of 64-year old pipelines running through the Straits of Mackinac. Environmental experts studying the Great Lakes have confirmed an oil spill stemming from Line 5 has the potential to wreak havoc on the Great Lakes ecosystem, which provides drinking water to over 30 million people and is the largest source of surface freshwater in the Western Hemisphere.
After the film, a panel of experts will discuss current updates within our state pertaining to Line 5, as well as how we can all take action to decommission the pipeline and protect our Great Lakes from a catastrophic oil spill.
