The impacts of nixing the Keystone XL pipeline on Canada-US relations

Global News published this video item, entitled “The impacts of nixing the Keystone XL pipeline on Canada-US relations” – below is their description.

Heather Yourex-West reports on Alberta’s premier condemning U.S. President-elect Joe Biden‘s plan to scrap the Keystone XL pipeline expansion on his first day as president. Jason Kenney said halting construction on the controversial project will be disastrous for both the Canadian and U.S. economies and their relationship.

Transition documents show that one of Biden’s to-do list priorities for inauguration day includes a plan to rescind the Keystone XL construction permit granted in 2019 by predecessor Donald Trump.

Plus, Eric Sorensen reports on its potential impact on Canada-U.S. relations, as Canada’s Natural Resources Minister Seamus O’Regan says the government is continuing to “make the case” for the Keystone XL pipeline expansion despite the reported plans from Biden.
