Wait and see on Keystone

The recent announcement by U.S. President Barack Obama saying no to the construction of the Keystone pipeline is not the final decision.

To the Editor,

The recent announcement by U.S. President Barack Obama saying no to the construction of the Keystone pipeline is not the final decision. The U.S. is having its general election in November 2016, and if the Republicans win government, the Keystone pipeline will be built. Both the new Liberal government in Canada and the Republican party in the U.S. want to see this project proceed as it would create jobs and when the pipeline is fully operational, it will bring in revenue from royalties and taxes to the governments on both sides of the border.
