Saskatchewan premier Brad Wall teams with 10 U.S. state governors in a letter to Pres. Obama lobbying for the Keystone (TRP) pipeline: "U.S. imports from Canada, a democratic friend and ally, could reach 4M bbl/day by 2020, twice what is currently imported from the Persian Gulf." Notably absent from the letter were Alberta's premier and Nebraska's governor.

  • Nice to see the concerns. BUT a better fit for Canada is to build to the west coast and to Montreal. Forget this Obama jerk and his silly politics!

  • Wrong! The greenies do not want it but the rest of Canada does which is why they are looking at pipelines running east to Ontario.

  • Someone should let Premier Wall know that Obama only listens to what foreign leaders have to say if they're a) dictators, b) radical Islamists or c) both a and b. He's out of luck getting the president to pay attention. That "democratic friend and ally" part blew it.

  • I' m ok with the letter but why Alberta is missing. To depend on Obama is not an option.

  • The pipeline will cross our farm land in eastern Kansas. Bring it down. I can smell the oil now. Love it. For the first time we can stop the flow of oil coming from the Middle East. Besides, it's a crummy oil anyway. BTW, purchased some gas in KC the other day for 2.64 a gallon. Love it.
