U.S. President-elect Joe Biden is planning to cancel the permit for the $9 billion Keystone XL pipeline project as one of his first acts in office, and perhaps as soon as his first day, according to a source familiar with his thinking.
President Donald Trump, a Republican, had made building the pipeline a central promise of his presidential campaign. Biden, who will be inaugurated on Wednesday, was vice president in the Obama administration when it rejected the project as contrary to its efforts to combat climate change.
The words "Rescind Keystone XL pipeline permit" appear on a list of executive actions likely scheduled for the first day of Biden's presidency, according to an earlier report https://bit.ly/3nP4993 by the Canadian Broadcasting Corp (CBC).
Biden, a Democrat, had earlier vowed to scrap the oil pipeline's presidential permit if he became president.
Canada's ambassador to the United States said she would continue to promote a project that she said fit with both countries' environmental plans. "There is no better partner for the U.S. on climate action than Canada as we work together for green transition," Ambassador Kirsten Hillman said in a statement.
The project, which would move oil from the province of Alberta to Nebraska, had been slowed by legal issues in the United States.
It also faced opposition from environmentalists seeking to check the expansion of Canada's oil sands by opposing new pipelines to move its crude to refineries.
Alberta Premier Jason Kenney said on Twitter that cancellation would eliminate jobs, weaken U.S.-Canada relations and undermine American national security by making the United States more dependent on OPEC oil imports.
TC Energy Corp., which operates the pipeline, said it would achieve net zero emissions by 2023 when it enters service. The company also pledged to use only renewable energy sources by 2030

It’s dead Jim.
If this is truly the “real Joe”, this is evidence he is bent on ushering in the NWO as he stated in 2013.
Perhaps Canada and the companies involved might have considered supporting the Trump campaign.
Any entity which failed to support Trump deserves to go under, and that includes voters.
It would be nice if that old degenerate would just cancel himself.
Canada should sell their oil to China. I suspect they will.
“.....according to a source familiar with his thinking.”
THIS IS NOT JOURNALISM THIS IS SPEECH WRITING!
Cut off ANY natural gas and petroleum supplies to DC.
No more coal for the Capitol power plant.
Get ready for $6/gal gas.
Canada should take the US to the International Agency on Trade (or whatever it is called) and sue Biden on the grounds he stole the election and therefore should not be allowed to change government policy with an adverse impact on Canada.
_That_ would be fun to watch...
More dependance on middle-east oil.
But wait. A Chinese blockade of the Straits of Malacca (Singapore) will end our oil supply.
He doesn't have to. I expect that Willie Brown's whore and the rest of the anti-Americans (democrats) will have him suicided within a month of being sworn in.
So many plans, so little time. 😆
Any one else suspect that Biden will NOT do this and Hunter will be on their Board of Directors within a year?
Is this the new line for reporters?
He has to beat 31 days. That was Wm Henry Harrison’s record. Of course that was natural causes.
Sounds like a thriller title:
“Arkancide in the Elipse”
