Start learning Chinese.

This is good R2, the pipeline was only to move oil from CAN to TX for cheap processing and to be sold for the Chinese.

The Canadian oil companies can run that pipeline they want so badly west from Alberta through Canada to reach oil ports in BC.

Pure cheek risking the American environment for THEIR oil.

It is, R4, but let's not pretend that there aren't plenty of American oil companies which set up in Canada, destroy the environment, and then pull put when the area is tapped out and leave behind orphan wells for Canadian taxpayers to clean up.

I'm very anti pipeline and I'm glad the project is canned, but not because I'm on the side of Americans who don't want a Canadian pipeline necessarily.

American oil companies have wreaked havoc in Canada for decades without paying for the damage they've caused and now Americans want to be all offended over a pipeline from Canada??

Cite examples, r5.

My impression is that Canada has never let oil companies do whatever like the USA has, viz., Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska.

The Republican party would sacrifice every animal on the planet if it meant just one more job they could crow about.

Are you serious, R7? You must be American.... not being snarky, it's just that it's a huge issue here. It's not the Canadian government that allows it, many times it's a provincial issue usually involving Alberta.

Anyway Shell, Exxon, Esso are three of the biggest players and there are many, many other small time Americancompaniesthat drill and sometimesrun out of money, leaving us on the hook to pay for the cleanup of their abandoned sites. Google orphaned wells and you'll see the damage they have caused. Not all of those companies are 100% American owned of course, but oftentimes if you follow the money, many have large percentages of American investors.

Which is why though I'm happy the Keystone XL is canceled, the American outrage over a Canadian pipeline makes me roll my eyes just a little.

I don't mean to be rude at all, but why would Americans think that American companies aren't busy destroying other countries too? Do they really think that oil and gas money and associated issues stop at their borders?

As you say, any instances of American-chartered companies getting away with running roughshod over Canadian ecological concerns only do so with the approval of either provincial governments or Canadian federal energy policy.

It's not like they just come in uninvited and start tearing up the Canadian environment.

As for the Keystone, American oil companies and Republican state governments for sure aided and abetted.
