"Three Amigos" meeting brings no movement on Keystone


Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper appears to have made little headway in persuading President Barak Obama to speed up a decision over whether to approve TransCanada's (TRP) Keystone oil pipeline at the "Three Amigos" Nafta summit in Mexico.

Still, along with Mexican President Pena Nieto, they said that they are in favor of widening free trade via the Trans-Pacific Partnership with countries such as Japan and Malaysia.

The leaders also disclosed a series of agreements, including one that would ease cross-border travel between the countries, and another that would strengthen road, rail and shipping links.

    "...and another that would strengthen road, rail and shipping links..." looks like we will continue to ship Canadian oil by rail.

    If the pipeline was sending wind to a windfarm it would have been approved long ago.

    Buffet is giving MILLIONS to the DEMS to keep his railroad busy and making himself BILLIONS. Pathetic with all we know today. Time for Canada to INVEST in themselves and build their own monster refineries. When you can ship finished product-EVERYONE will want it!!! Build jobs & economic stability in Canada and our 100+ year energy excess can be sold worldwide at a premium.

     

    Waiting for Keystone is a FOOLS GAME. Dems would rather buy heavy oil from Terror countries than our wonderful Canada. We need to make ALL OF NORTH AMERICA energy independent together!!!

    Wyattkap you have a great idea, the Canadians build a string of refineries and power plants to run them, next to the refineries in Canada close to the oil, more jobs for the Canadians. Perhaps if the new refineries were more efficient they would force the US refineries to close and the US employment rate would go higher. Too bad they cannot get it done before the next election!
