Keystone XL is Dead, Again.
That didn't take long. President Joe Biden has revoked the presidential permit for the Keystone XL pipeline expansion. Word was out he'd kill KXL on Day One. He did just that.
Justin Trudeau added a touch of hilarity to the situation:
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he discussed the pipeline issue with then-president-elect Biden in a conversation “a number of weeks ago.”
“We have highlighted, including in a direct conversation I had with president-elect Biden a number of weeks ago, that Canada has… become a global leader on the fight against climate change… and that Keystone XL continues to be an important project for us,” he said.
Good one, Justin. I bet the "global leader" line got a few giggles.
