Wisconsin's Republican Congressmen call for Keystone XL pipeline to be completed

The long-disputed Keystone XL pipeline's construction was halted Wednesday after President Joe Biden revoked the construction project's permit.

Psaki also said the administration would review all oil and gas leases on public lands.

McConaghy said Canada's attempts to convince Biden to restore Keystone XL's construction permit should be "as constructive and temperate as possible" despite the frustration and anger caused by the decision, particularly in Alberta.

Biden revoked the permit as part of an executive order related to public health, the environment and climate change.

NDP Opposition Leader Rachel Notley commented it was a hard day for the province's energy sector and that the Biden decision would harm thousands of Alberta workers and their families.

The pipeline would transport crude oil from Canada to an existing pipeline network in Nebraska with connections to the Gulf of Mexico, spanning the Canadian border in Montana and across 285 miles in six eastern counties in the state.

Trudeau said he previously spoke to Biden about the pipeline.

"Pulling the plug on a major project, hours after taking office, is a rocky starting point for re-setting Canada/U.S. relations", said PCAC president Paul de Jong.

Security officers piled furniture against the chamber's door and drew their pistols before helping lawmakers and others escape. She has not yet been named by officials, but police earlier said she was a civilian. "Just plain, simple decency", Biden said.

"The pipeline - the most studied infrastructure project in American history - is already under construction and has cleared countless legal and environmental hurdles", Durbin said in a statement.

Like in the United States, the issue of the Keystone XL pipeline is hotly-debated in Canada.

"Now is the time for our nations to strengthen our trading relationship, not erect further barriers to collaborative and sustainable development", he said in a statement. On Joe Biden's first day he decided to make things even harder.

The reasoning for eliminating the project stems from climate change theory, but the alternative to moving crude oil using the Keystone XL pipeline is another pipeline from Alberta to IL and Texas. Construction on the project had stopped earlier in the day in anticipation of the move. The project is meant to expand critical oil exports for Canada, which has the third-largest oil reserves in the world.

TC Energy announced a plan Sunday for the Keystone XL project to achieve net zero emissions by spurring an investment of over US$1.7 billion in communities along the Keystone XL footprint to create about 1.6 gigawatts of renewable electric capacity.

Keystone XL President Richard Prior said over 1,000 jobs will be eliminated in the coming weeks.

Kenney said he is calling on Trudeau to discuss Biden's decision with the new US administration.
