Keystone XL Welcomed

Alberta Liberal Leader David Swann welcomes US executive order advancing Keystone XL pipeline

Calgary, AB (January 24, 2017):

Alberta Liberal Leader David Swann welcomed today’s decision in the United States to advance Keystone XL.

“Alberta Liberals have long been in support of pipelines to get the province’s energy resources to international markets, so long as the best environmental protections are included and First Nations communities are properly consulted.

“In light of the significant challenges Alberta has faced relative to the prolonged slump in oil prices, the importance of this project proceeding cannot be overstated. Today’s decision is a positive development for both our province and our country.”
