We abuse land because we see it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect. -Aldo Leopold

The Mackinac Bridge Authority should NOT be responsible for an Enbridge oil tunnel in the Straits!

The Governor is trying to circumvent Michigan’s environmental laws by appointing new members who will support accepting this responsibility by the Mackinac Bridge Authority.  Seems like the Big Mac is doing well, and must have the MBA’s full attention – not taking on the huge financial responsibility for a tunnel to ship oil from Alberta to Sarnia, Ontario. Read more here, and then send an email to the Mackinac Bridge Authority's Bob Sweeney  now, before their March 8, 2018 meeting in St. Ignace, 9am-12pm at the Little Bear East Arena, 275 Marquette St.  If you can, attend the meeting (RSVP HERE). where Enbridge will pitch its tunnel proposal to members of the bridge authority for the first time.
