Sierra Club Canada Welcomes Obama Administration Decision on the Keystone XL Pipeline.
MEDIA RELEASE, January 18, 2012
"We welcome the decision by the Obama Administration to say no to the
Keystone XL pipeline," said John Bennett, Executive Director of Sierra
Club Canada. “Obama listened to Americans and shared their concerns
about the environmental and social impacts. He made the right decision.”
"The Keystone XL pipeline is a bad idea based on bad economics.
Today is a victory for the environment and future generations,” said
Mr. Bennett. "We only wish the Canadian government would act as
thoughtfully when it comes to other proposed mega-Tar Sands
projects like the Northern Gateway Pipeline.”
