Article image Alberta wants compensation from United States over Keystone XL cancellation

Almost $2bn (C$2.5bn) in goods and services are exchanged between the United States and Canada every day. Trudeau raised Canada's disappointment with the United States' decision on the Keystone XL pipeline, according to a readout of the call.

Biden called Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Friday in his first call to a foreign leader.

TC Energy has attempted to build a larger, more direct pipeline from Hardisty, Alberta, to Steele City, Nebraska.

They ended the call by agreeing to meet next month, either in person or virtually.

They also discussed expanding co-operation on defence matters and working together in the Arctic region, as well as the "arbitrary detention" of two Canadians - Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor - in China, Mr Trudeau's office said.

Kenney has also appeared in a widely distributed photo with Texas Senator Ted Cruz, Alberta's worst export, ever, to the United States, and one of the men who along with the former president himself fomented the January 6 attempted coup at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. Had that coup been successful, it would have prevented President Biden from coming to power and possibly much worse.

The PM hailed Mr Biden's arrival as a "new era" for bilateral ties.

"Union labour is critical to Keystone XL", the premier pleaded.

Upon taking office on Wednesday, Biden rescinded a permit for the pipeline via executive order, blocking completion of the project started nearly a decade ago. Construction of the pipeline, which would have transported more than 800,000 barrels a day of oil sands crude from Alberta to Nebraska, had already started past year after the government of Alberta invested $1.1 billion into the project to jump-start work. The pipeline's construction has drawn opposition from many Native American and First Nations leaders.

For years now, Canada's oil and gas sector has been struggling, plagued by a lack of pipeline capacity and a steep discount in the price of Western Canadian Select crude.

Speaking to reporters this morning outside his home at Rideau Cottage, Trudeau said there are opportunities for cooperation between his government and the new administration - even though one of Biden's first moves was to effectively cancel the Keystone XL pipeline by revoking its permit.

Kenney has called for Canada to introduce economic sanctions against the US if Biden will not reconsider his decision.

And Mr. Kenney and the UCP would like you to think that's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's fault.

She said Mr. Kenney knew when he spent the money that Keystone was risky, given it was facing further legal challenges and that the Democrat contender for president at the time, Mr. Biden, had opposed it in the past.

It's all grandstanding to somehow get Prime Minister Trudeau to wear the blame for Kenney's foolish decision.
