PM Trudeau Says He’ll Make Sure Canada’s Views Are Heard on Keystone XL

Biden has indicated he plans to cancel the pipeline's permit after Wednesday's inauguration

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said today he will continue to press Canada’s case for the Keystone XL pipeline project with the incoming Biden administration in the U.S., which is poised to rescind the presidential permit allowing cross-border construction tomorrow.

However, the Prime Minister gave little details about the government’s next steps as the two countries begin a new phase of diplomatic relations.

“We’ve had a clear and consistent position supporting this project for years. Our government is making sure that Canada’s views are heard and considered by the incoming administration at the highest levels,” he told a news briefing today in front of his home at Rideau Cottage.

“I’m really looking forward to working closely with the new president and his team to create jobs and build back better together, for us all.”

Trudeau said he will talk about the project later today with Alberta Premier Jason Kenney, who has said he will claim legal damages if the project is cancelled.

When asked by reporters if the federal government would support such legal action, Trudeau said he supports the project and he, along with Canadian officials in Washington, will continue to argue Canada’s position.

Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole has called on Trudeau to reach out to the incoming U.S. administration to ensure Keystone moves forward.

Meanwhile, NDP Party Leader Jagmeet Singh welcomed Biden’s action, saying it contradicts Trudeau’s support for several natural resource projects.

Green Party leader Annamie Paul called Biden a “climate fighter” and said that Canada’s leadership “is not serious about addressing a climate emergency.”
