The approval of the Keystone XL pipeline garnered a positive response from Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall.
Wall says he was happy to hear that the go-ahead was given by U.S. President Donald Trump, which means Canada can move it’s oil to tidewater as well as the States. He predicts there will be about 2,200 jobs for people in Saskatchewan building the 530 kilometers of Keystone XL in Alberta and Saskatchewan.
However that will cost about 1-point 2 billion dollars.
Wall also says it’s good news for Evraz as the Regina-based company participated in the project until it was shut down by the Obama administration.
Wall went on to repeat his statement that “if Keystone had been judged on its merits and on the facts, it would have been approved years ago.”
