Keystone Fallout

The President’s latest dodge on the Keystone Pipeline — he said no, but they can ask again after the election — has led to immediate responses from Canada and a flurry of commentary.  Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper says Canada will look to Asian markets for its abundant oil and gas supplies [see Bloomberg report here], Transcanada (the pipeline’s would be owner) says they might build it in segments since presidential approval is not required if they do not cross the international border [see Calgary Herald report here], and commentator William Tucker says the environmentalist opposition is a stark reminder that extreme environmentalism is the domain of the leisure class.  What do they care about jobs for the folks who might build and maintain the pipeline, not to mention the people who work in industries dependent on reliable energy supplies.
