Canadian Leader Promotes Keystone Pipeline in Washington

Alberta Canada Premier Alison Redford will be in Washington Tuesday putting pressure on the Obama administration to approve the Keystone XL oil pipeline.

According to The Hill, Redford plans to meet with officials at the State Department, which is spearheading the pipeline review, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the White House Council on Environmental Quality.

She will also see Sens. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, two of the Senate's biggest Democratic supporters of the pipeline project, which is being designed to transport tar sands crude from Canada, Montana and North Dakota to the Gulf Coast.

"We need to ensure American decision-makers have a clear understanding of the responsible energy development and the strong environmental policies we have in Alberta," Redford said late last month when announcing the trip, according to The Hill.

The State Department is putting the finishing touches on its latest environmental study of the project, according to the newspaper. President Barack Obama has the final say over whether the pipeline will be built. He's expected to announce his decision next year.
