    Join us for a film about Enbridge Line 5. Line 5 is a twin set of pipelines that pass along the lakebed of the Straits of Mackinac, just west of the Mackinac Bridge. Currents in the Straits are strong, turbulent, and variable. The area is described as the absolute worst place for a pipeline. Placed in 1953, the pipelines are used to pump millions of gallons of crude oil, natural gas, and propane gas. The entire pipeline route travels through Wisconsin, through the southern edge of the Upper Peninsula, under the Straits of Mackinac, and down through the Lower Peninsula to Sarnia, where it again crosses to Sarnia, Ontario. The film discusses the risks to our Great Lakes, water, environment and economy. Please join David Holtz, Sierra Club Michigan Chapter Chair, to watch, discuss, and plan for action. Presented by Sierra Club Huron Valley. Free.
