Keystone Pipeline Supported by Canadian PM

President Biden said he planned to cancel the project.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said his office has already made the case to President Joe Biden’s incoming administration favoring the long-disputed oil pipeline known as the Keystone XL. President Biden, before taking office, had said he would cancel the pipeline project on his first day in office.

Trudeau said that over the last several days his office has communicated arguments in favor of the pipeline to the highest levels in the Biden Administration. The prime minister’s office released the following statement: “The Prime Minister stated that Canada has made the case for the project, including recently to President-elect Biden, and Ambassador Hillman and others in government have also been speaking with high-level officials in the incoming administration.”

Alberta Premier Jason Kenney said in a different statement that he urged Trudeau to tell Biden that “rescinding the Keystone XL border crossing permit would damage the Canada-US bilateral relationship.””

The 1,700-mile pipeline would carry approximately 800,000 barrels of oil a day from Alberta to the Texas Gulf Coast, passing through Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas. It would expand critical oil exports for Canada, which has the third-largest oil reserves in the world.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president’s administration as the Keystone XL pipeline project is considered.
  • That God’s wisdom would lead President Biden as he works with international leaders.
  • For the officials of both Canada and the United States as the advantages and benefits of the pipeline are discussed.
  • For the future relationship between the United States and Canada.
