(LibertySociety.com) – The Keystone XL pipeline was one of the most important projects during President Donald Trump’s Administration. His predecessor Barack Obama refused to allow the project to move forward because he believed it would “undercut” America’s position as a leader in the fight against climate change. Now, it looks like Joe Biden, should he take office, plans once again to put a stop to it.
According to a January 17 report by the CBC News, a Canadian website, the words “rescind Keystone XL pipeline permit” were seen by sources on Biden’s transition paperwork.
This weekend stakeholders have seen a longer list of Biden’s planned executive actions than what was publicly reported in a memo from incoming chief of staff Ron Klain.
That purported list includes a reference to cancelling Keystone XL on Day 1 — Wednesday.

When complete, the pipeline will carry oil from Canada to the US Gulf Coast.
Unfortunately, Biden seems intent on stopping the pipeline, killing it and the jobs it created. The news came as the US learned the Democrat also wants to legalize millions of illegal immigrants who will take more jobs from the American people. If Biden follows through on either of those policies, it’s safe to bet the economy will be in peril at a time when Americans are still recovering from COVID-19.
