Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Wednesday said his administration was “disappointed” with President Joe Biden’s decision to revoke the permit for construction on the Keystone XL oil pipeline.
The 1,700-mile pipeline was planned to carry roughly 800,000 barrels of oil a day from Alberta to the Texas Gulf Coast, passing through Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, and Oklahoma.
“While we welcome the President’s commitment to fight climate change, we are disappointed but acknowledge the President’s decision to fulfill his election campaign promise on Keystone XL,” read Trudeau’s statement, released just hours after Biden was officially sworn-in as the U.S.’ 46th president.
The move was part of the Biden administration’s broader goal to crack down on fossil fuels. The new president is expected to direct sweeping environmental regulatory changes over the next four years and reverse some Trump-era deregulatory policies in an effort to tackle climate change.
The controversial Keystone XL pipeline initially proposed more than a decade ago, would sustain about 11,000 U.S. jobs in 2021 and generate $1.6 billion in gross wages.

Your are going to freeze in the dark soy boy
Get used to it Justine.
Gosh Justin, having second thoughts about not being more supportive of Donald Trump? Buyers remorse?
Gas prices should be rising as we speak.
Pound oil sand, Justin. You wanted Biden. Now you can live with him.
Not the first time Justin has taken it in the tush.
Wait didn’t Biden consult with our ally?
If I recall correctly the pipeline was an environmental plus with cleaner crude.
They are. hovering at $2 now in my community at the cheapest stations.
Cue 70s disco music under Jimmy Carter.
There were permits. It was settled law! < /sarc >
This is the kind of thing Congress should be overriding, but their heads are up their butts.
For Swamp Creatures $6/gallon gas is fine...they can afford it.For we members of the Great Unwashed...the middle class and working class...it’s a very different story.
Justin—we know you don’t have a spine, but can’t you borrow one somewhere and start calling Bidet some nasty names at least?
I just really hope that enough of my fellow Canadians come to their senses before the next Federal Election, that we can get a real adult in charge, and “Dreamy-Boi” can go back to teaching drama and playing Mr. Dressup.
We all are.
If you look at a map, the pipeline is just a direct path to an existing pipeline. The flow remains the same. In other words...stopping the new line does “0” to the environment.
Biden forget who Canada was—hard to consult with them when you don’t know they exist!
I don’t recall Biden making any election campaign promise about the pipeline. Must have been one of those “under-the-table” promises, because it would have damn sure been used by Trump. Oh well.
People should realize that the same people that created the Arab Spring, created and armed ISIS, are players in the Biden regime. We can certainly look forward to that again.
