Premier Hancock statement on the Keystone XL delay
Premier Dave Hancock issued the following statement on April 18, 2014:
“I am disappointed in today’s announcement of yet another delay in the regulatory approval process for the Keystone XL pipeline. Thorough, predictable and independent regulatory processes are in the interests of all participants.
“Keystone XL has been rigorously studied. We believe the project is in North America’s best interest as it provides energy security, jobs and a dependable energy source from an environmentally responsible and democratic friend and ally.
“Our government has been clear that opening markets is our number one economic priority because more markets mean more long-term opportunities for all Canadians.
“Alberta’s commitment to responsible environmental management strongly positions us as the safest and most secure energy supplier to our American neighbours.”
