David Khan releases statement on final approval of Keystone XL

CALGARY, AB (NOVEMBER 20, 2017): Alberta Liberal Leader David Khan released the following statement on the Nebraska Public Service Commission’s final approval of Keystone XL:

“I welcome the approval of the Keystone XL pipeline. Alberta Liberals believe in balancing our economic interests with strong environmental responsibility, and consultation with Indigenous peoples. I believe this project achieves that goal.

“While no method is perfect, pipelines remain the safest, most secure, and most environmentally responsible way to transport Alberta bitumen and oil.

“Alberta needs access to new markets and this project will provide it. I’m excited about the economic opportunity it represents for Alberta. Today is a good day for our province.”
