What a President Biden means for Canadians

TC Energy says that the pipeline would create 13,200 jobs, with 10,400 being in the U.S. and 2,800 being in Canada.

USA unemployment benefit applications jumped by another 1.3 million applications last week.

Kenney has called for Canada to introduce economic sanctions against the US if Biden will not reconsider his decision. "In the meantime, the basin will continue to play a key role in supplying other non-LNG related natural gas demand in other USA regions such as the Northeast and the Midwest", Folse said.

"Much, much more is needed".

"The bottom line is this: we're in a national emergency".

Mr Deese said: "These steps are created to help ensure the federal government is a model employer".

Biden signed an executive order on his first day in office revoking a Keystone XL permit granted by his predecessor, Donald Trump. They will know he killed two made-in-Canada pipelines, brought in a new regulatory regime that makes future pipelines all but impossible and failed to raise much of a stir when the Obama administration cancelled Keystone for the first time in 2015.

"His record shows the American people that he's committed to clean energy jobs, to jobs that are not only good, high-paying jobs, union jobs, but ones that are also good for our environment".


These orders arrive as the Biden White House has declined to provide a timeline for getting its proposed relief package through, saying that officials are beginning to schedule meetings with lawmakers to discuss the proposal.

Jen Psaki, the white House press secretary, said: "I can't give you a timeline".

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau stressed the common ground Canada and the United States share ahead of his first phone call with U.S. President Joe Biden later on Friday, adding that it was the start of a "new era" for the two countries.

Neil Bradley, chief policy officer at the Chamber, told reporters Thursday that Congress should act fast to approve the roughly $400 billion for national vaccination and reopening schools and other elements of the plan with bipartisan support, rather than drag out negotiations.

While Trudeau welcomed that the United States would rejoin the Paris Agreement, revoking the permit will cost Canadian jobs, Trudeau said.

He said: "Obviously the decision on Keystone is a very hard one for workers in Alberta and Saskatchewan who've had many hard hits over the past years".

"I will express my concern for jobs and livelihoods in Canada, particularly in the West, directly in my conversation with President Biden".
