Canadians To Obama: Put Up Or Shut Up On Keystone
Canadian officials are urging President Barack Obama to move to end delays holding up the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline. Canadian natural resource minister Joe Oliver said the President risks damaging relations between the two countries in not doing so.
As the Environmental Protection Agency continues to keep the State Department from approving the project, the Canadian official said that a rejection of the Keystone plan “would represent a serious reversal in our long-standing energy relationship.”
He also wants environmental objectors to know that Canada is going continue to develop and export its available resources regardless of what the U.S. decides.
“Make no mistake,” Oliver said in a speech at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, “Canadian resource development and export, including from the oil sands, will continue, Keystone or no Keystone.”
He later went on, “Anyone who equates the rejection of Keystone XL with some kind of body blow to the oil sands is just plain wrong.”
