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.
