Shut Down Line 5

Line 5 is an oil pipeline that is owned by Enbridge. It was built in 1953 and transports an average of 540,000 barrels a day of mostly tar sands oil from Superior, Wisconsin, to Sarnia, Ontario.

From Ganawendan Nibi: Protect Water – “The Line 5 Pipeline threatens Tribal land, Treaty Rights in the ceded territory, the Great Lakes, and the climate. The pipeline, which is long past its lifespan, is currently pumping tar sands oil under expired permits. Despite the Bad River Band of Lake Superior Chippewa’s request that Enbridge remove Line 5 and not put a pipeline in the Bad River watershed, Enbridge has moved forward with their reroute just south of the reservation. This expansion is within the watershed, and the risk to the treasured ecosystem remains.”
