TORONTO Canada's prime minister says he made it clear in a meeting with U.S. President Barack Obama that Canada will step up its efforts to sell oil to Asia since the Obama administration delayed a decision on an oil pipeline.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper says Canada will continue to push the U.S. to approve the $7-billion Keystone XL project. Last week the U.S. State Department ordered that the pipeline be rerouted and subject to further environmental review, delaying a decision until 2013.

Are gainfully-employed people, who are not on the government dole, more likely to vote for Democrats, or for Republicans?
That’s all you need to know about this XL pipeline business.
Memo to PM Harper:
Hang on, baby.
Change is gonna come.
I'm not so sure of that.
...like you said...
One good turn deserves another.Obama votes present on the Keystone pipeline. Harper votes present on Obama’s request to maintain the current level of oil supply to the US.
So, China and others will get that Canadian oil that could be coming here...and that could be producing jobs here.
In addition, many, many more jobs are available, and even stronger positive impact on prices would be obtained by simply allowing us to drill for our own oil all over this nation and off our own coasts.
Obama is against America being strong, being independent, and coming out of this economic problem...the longer he governs, the more obvious it is.
The Man who despises America
If Obama thinks he can delay this decision until after the election, and that the oil will still be there afterwards, he's fooling himself.
Yeah, but voting "president" saved oboma from losing votes. A reasoned choice either way would have lost him either brown shirt votes or tree hugger votes. Can't have it both ways.
It's not about what's best for America. It's about what's best for Oboma. He likes playing king.
Fortunately, for the proponents, the staunchest envrio-fascists also tend to be the most anti-American. Now, the pipeline and port can be sold on the basis of “sticking it to the Americans”. What's an anti-American envriro-fascist to do? Oh the huge manatee!
The biggest stumbling block is the port for tanker traffic. If we don't get a northern pipeline, the railways stand ready to move the crude by train.
BTW, my preference would be to have both pipelines.
So in other words, take a long walk off a short pier, Barack
NAFTA doesn't cover new supplies. The Keystone project would have carried new production (that G.W.Bush asked for). It also doesn't prevent the U.S. from buying less oil — even completely boycotting all oil-sands oil, as many are calling for. If the U.S. ever cuts back on imports of Canadian energy; Canada is under no obligation to ever return exports to previous levels.
Oil is a fungible commodity — but, a supply coming by pipeline from a friendly country is more secure than oil from the Mideast or Venezuela.
There ya go again.....clouding the issue with facts, common sense and logic!
After something so idiotic you can’t help but feel Obama is purposely hurting America.
Way to go, Ubanga, you sick socialist scumbag.
Left, work began on the Motiva Port Arthur refinery in 2007. Right, when completed, it will be able to process 600,000 barrels of oil per day making it the largest US refinery.
The other half is the processing units.
Does Canada have that as well?
This has taken several years and billions of dollars to complete.
The tanker port I referred to would be a new one built in B.C.
If the U.S. wants this oil, it's there for you. If you don't want it, Canada has to sell it to someone who does.
As usual Mr. Dunham is burning off his political capital
well before it's earned.
But Susan Sarandon and friends rather the US buy Saudi conflict oil than get it from the “dirty” oil sands, even though the CO2 footprint of the oil sands is dwarfed by CO2 emitted via coal burning plans along the East coast of the US.
