Canada Resources Minister lays out case for Keystone XL pipeline approval

BY JERRY A. DICOLO

HOUSTON -- Canada' s Minister of Natural Resources Joe Oliver pushed for U.S. approval of TransCanada’s Keystone XL pipeline, calling Canada the "environmentally responsible choice" for the U.S. to meet its future demand for energy.

Keystone XL "would deliver more than oil to the United States," Mr. Oliver said in an address to the IHS CERAWeek energy conference, in which he laid out his case for approval of the politically controversial pipeline. He said the pipeline approval would create "tens of thousands of high-quality jobs" and "enhance energy security."

He also criticized opponents of the pipeline, which if approved would bring crude from Canada' s oil sands to the Gulf Coast, saying critics "engage in misrepresentation and hyperbole" regarding the environmental implications of the pipeline' s approval.

"The oil sands is not going to destroy the planet," Mr. Oliver said.
