Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper Claims He Was Told This Month That Keystone XL Would Be Approved

Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, a conservative advocate of his nation’s tar sands boom, told CTV National News that U.S. officials said the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline would still be approved when he visited the United States earlier this month, but now he believes it will never get built. “When I was down in the United States recently it was interesting. I ran into several senior Americans who all said, ‘Don’t worry, we’ll get Keystone done. You can sell all of your oil to us.’ I said, ‘Yeah we’d love to,’ but I think the problem is now that we’re on a different track,” Harper said.
