Rashida Tlaib: Biden must revoke Line 5 permit before it destroys Great Lakes

Damage to Grea Lakes anchor supportClean water is a human right. We cannot allow greedy polluters to take that right away from us here in Michigan, or allow them continue to exploit our water for profit.

The Line 5 pipeline transports crude oil from Alberta through the Straits of Mackinac, the most critical part of the Great Lakes, operated by a Canadian company called Enbridge with a disturbing history of faulty infrastructure and environmental destruction, including right here in Michigan. For more than a decade, tribal leaders, environmental activists, elected officials and people from all walks of life across Michigan have been fighting to shut down Line 5, because anything that threatens the health of the Great Lakes threatens the health of our communities and our collective future.

The Great Lakes hold 21% of the world’s fresh surface water. More than 40 million people across multiple states, Tribal nations and Canada rely on the Great Lakes for drinking water. And they’re so much more than just drinking water: The Great Lakes are home to precious ecosystems and wildlife, and tens of millions of people rely on them for jobs, fishing, and recreation.
