Canadas government is joining President Trump in criticizing a Montana judges ruling that blocked construction of the Keystone XL pipeline.
We are committed to supporting our energy sector and the hard-working Canadians it employs. Our government has always supported the Keystone XL project, and we are disappointed by this decision, Vanessa Adams, spokeswoman for Canadian Natural Resources Minister Amarjeet Sohi, said in a statement.
It is important for good, middle-class jobs in Canada and for a successful energy export market. The project has received all necessary approvals in Canada, she said.
Adams said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's government is taking an approach to resource development that will grow our economy and protect the environment. These priorities go hand-in-hand.
Support for Keystone XL has been consistently strong in Canada since developer TransCanada Corp. first proposed it in 2008.
It would likely create thousands of jobs in Canada, while providing a major export opportunity for oil sands petroleum from Alberta.
Opponents of Trudeaus ruling Liberal Party are also mad, and are blaming him and his government.
This is a wake up call for Justin Trudeau. We cant rely on foreign governments to help us get full value for our resources, Andrew Scheer, head of the Conservative Party and leader of the official opposition in Parliament, said on Twitter.
We need to take matters into our own hands and build our own pipelines so all Canadians can benefit from our oil and gas industry!
Environmental and indigenous rights groups have cheered the decision as a significant win for the planet.
Trump, on the other hand, called it a political decision and a disgrace.
Montana federal Judge Brian Morriss ruling issued late Thursday found that the State Department didnt properly justify why it reversed the reasoning for rejecting Keystone XL in 2015, and it needs to more thoroughly examine issues like the impact of low oil prices and potential American Indian resources along the route.
Maybe Canada can find a judge to override the other judge. Seems like anything goes now.
Does anybody think that next time a dhimmicrate gets elected president that we can literally block every thing he does with the word of a single judge on some obscure court in a state that most educated dims could not find on a map?
It’ll get overturned. Just another Obama appointee legislating from the Bench.
I don’t know why but it still amazes me how the left can only get their way when a single unelected official in a black robe makes a new law for them. Otherwise the dems would be powerless. Nearly all of the lefts political victories are brought about by judges and not legislation.
Montana federal Judge Brian Morriss ruling … found that the State Department didnt properly justify why it reversed the reasoning … and it needs to more thoroughly examine issues like the impact of low oil prices and potential American Indian resources along the route."Based on what law does this judge get the power to act like God? He is just pulling stuff out of his butt. Nothing illegal occurred. How can he invent all these conditions out of the blue? Show me the statute which says the State Department needs " to more thoroughly examine issues"! Why does the State Department need to "justify" anything???!!! Who says so?
When I was a kid I tried to pull this crap on my Dad. His answer was "Because I said so!". If I didn't like it, it was the belt instead.
Liberal activist Obama judge. Not ruling on merits. Ruling on personal opinion. BS!
This Kentuckian agrees with you.
Dear wannabe Judge ... You seem to have come to a Conclusion, please Re-submit your Conclusion to the Supreme Court and this time show your work.
Pipeline... Continue without delay.
Another unfit for the bench Obama appointee.
