Line 5 Comment Workshop

Earlier this month, in eight hours of public comment, the Army Corps heard our call loud and clear: reject permits for Line 5. Hundreds of people turned out in Ashland because of their concerns for the Great Lakes! Comments at the hearing were overwhelmingly (2-1) in support of the shutdown of Line 5.

Now, it's time for the rest of us to add our voices. You can submit comments online until July 5. Learn more about the process here:

Tell the Biden Administration: No to Line 5
Enbridge Energy, a multi-billion dollar corporation, is moving oil dangerously through northern Wisconsin every day illegally in trespass, violating the Bad River Band's sovereignty. Now, Enbridge is trying to expand that pipeline and operate it for years to come, putting at risk the water, fish, plants and animals, humans, and so much more, with the threat of an oil spill.

The Biden Administration is taking comments on Enbridge's proposal and they need to hear about the dangers of the pipeline and the need to deny permits for the reroute.
