Kerry: No rush to decide fate of Keystone XL pipeline

|By:, SA News Editor

Sec. of State John Kerry meets with Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird and says the U.S. won’t be pushed into making a decision on the Keystone XL (TRP)  pipeline, despite pressure from Canada and other supporters for quick action.

Kerry's comments come a day after Baird expressed increasing Canadian impatience with the foot-dragging over the long-delayed decision.

Canada believes the pipeline project ultimately will be approved, Prime Minister Harper's chief spokesman reiterates, adding Baird's remarks didn't reflect a changed view by the government but that it would like a decision "sooner rather than later."
