Pipeline Decision Time for U.S.
Ottawa Citizen, Ottawa Citizen
U.S. President Barack Obama's move last year to delay a decision on a permit for the Keystone XL oil pipeline extension was widely -- and rightly -- regarded as self-serving. He was up for re-election and needed to curry favour with the eco-electorate. This year, with his second term assured, Obama has the chance to restore reasoned and coherent governance to his administration, at least on this file.
