Scott wants council to ask Trudeau to pressure Biden on Keystone XL

Scott wants council to ask Trudeau to pressure Biden on Keystone XL”

"I will express my concern for jobs and livelihoods in Canada, particularly in the west, directly in my conversation with President Biden", Trudeau said.

All of that came as bad news to Alberta Premier Jason Kenney, who wrote a letter to Trudeau asking him to defend Canada's energy industry with the same vigour and passion that he fought back against Donal Trump when he wanted to rip up NAFTA and impose punitive tariffs on steel. "And so many are hanging by a thread, they need help, and we are committed to doing everything we can to provide that help as quickly as possible", said Brian Deese, director of the National Economic Council. However, Yao doubted Kenney's calls for action would be heard by Trudeau. "But we have to do all we can", said Yao.

"The American people can not afford to wait", said Brian Deese, director of the White House National Economic Council.

"The president can and should refocus his administration on creating good-paying American jobs, not sacrificing our people's livelihoods to liberal symbolism".

Some 200 kilometres of pipe have already been installed for the expansion, including across the Canada-U.S. border, and construction has begun on pump stations in Alberta and several U.S. states.

"The prime minister reiterated his disappointment with the decision on Keystone XL, and emphasized that the federal government has engaged with the new administration in support of the project", it said.

"We are ready to work shoulder to shoulder (with the United States) to defeat COVID-19 and rebuild economies that benefit everyone", Trudeau told reporters.

Canada's Justin Trudeau and U.S. President Joe Biden agreed to meet next month, the prime minister's office said on Friday, following a call between the two leaders in which they vowed to join forces to combat coronavirus in North America.

While Trudeau welcomed that the USA would rejoin the Paris Agreement, revoking the permit will cost Canadian jobs, Trudeau said.

Kenney says Wednesday's decision came "without even giving Canada a chance to communicate", although Hillman insists she has been in near-constant discussions with the Biden team ever since May, when they promised to cancel the project.

Biden's decision has critics in the U.S. Republican party as well: Rep. Kevin McCarthy, the House minority leader, calls it a job-killing "virtue signal" to climate activists.

Biden and Vice-President Kamala Harris were scheduled to receive a briefing later Friday on that recovery effort before the president makes public remarks on their plans.
