White House Says Canada Election Unlikely To Affect Keystone Timing


WASHINGTON, Oct 20 (Reuters) - The White House said on Tuesday that the completion of the Canadian election was unlikely to affect the timing of a U.S. State Department decision on the Keystone XL crude oil pipeline.

President Barack Obama still expects to make a decision on the pipeline, designed to run from Canada to Texas, before leaving office in 15 months, White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters.

And is there any doubt what Obamas decision will be? Obama bites the hand of, maybe, the most important industry in the country and the world!
