Biden planning to kill KeystoneXL pipeline: reports

Joe Biden is planning to send a clear message at the outset of his presidency by moving to kill the KeystoneXL pipeline.

The incoming president has alarmed Canadian officials with his plans to cancel the controversial project by executive order on Wednesday, according to reports.

Report: Biden to cancel Keystone XL pipeline

President Donald Trump was a strong supporter of fossil fuels, and he took a number of actions to reverse his predecessor’s legacy on the environment, including his approval of the $9 billion pipeline project.

The pipeline would allow some 830,000 barrels of crude to flow from the Canadian province of Alberta to Nebraska. Advocates say it will create jobs, but the pipeline has faced opposition for years from environmental activists.

The project has been in legal limbo, Fox Business notes, but it could be killed off altogether by Trump’s successor, who made fighting climate change a priority on the campaign trail. A source close to him told Fox News that he “clearly needed to give an early win to the environmentalists on his team.”

Across the border, however, officials have responded with alarm and indignation, with officials calling it a “punch in the face,” according to CTV News.

Alberta’s premier, Jason Kenney, said that he is “deeply concerned” by Biden’s plans, which he said would kill jobs, weaken America’s ties to Canada and weaken America’s national security.

Backlash

Kenney will seek legal damages for the project, according to the AP. “We hope President-elect Biden will show respect for Canada and will sit down and at the very least talk to us,” Kenney said.

Meanwhile, TC Energy, which owns the Keystone pipeline, has made efforts to placate the Biden administration with promises to eliminate greenhouse gases by 2030.

“Since it was initially proposed more than 10 years ago, the Keystone XL project has evolved with the needs of North America, our communities and the environment,” Keystone XL president Richard Prior said Monday.

That’s not all Biden has planned. The incoming president will ask Congress to work on an amnesty plan for 11 million illegal immigrants on day one.

He also plans to issue executive orders on mask wearing, end Trump’s travel ban, and re-join the Paris Climate Accords, which Trump left.

  4. Jobs lost, we’ll no longer be energy independent, 11 million new democrat voters, he’s well on his way of destroying everything that was rebuilt over the past 4 years in record time.

  5. Voters should have given President Donald Trump another 4 years to finish the job he started. He is not a politician but he is a true American whose desire is to make America Great Again.

    1. Voters did give Trump four more years. Anybody who believes otherwise has no brain. How can people believe the devil got more votes in areas than there are people living there. Guess schools don’t teach math anymore.

    2. 174M Americans did vote to give Trump another four years, however, when the machines are rigged, ballots for Trump destroyed, mail in ballots changed, it is hard to win a race. Hopefully all these deceivers receive their karma within the next 90 days.
