Trudeau congratulates Biden on victory in U.S. presidential election


Prime Minister Justin Trudeau eagerly ushered in a new era of co-operation with U.S. President-elect Joe Biden on Saturday, as Alberta’s Jason Kenney made a thinly-veiled request to preserve the Keystone XL pipeline. “We will further build on this foundation as we continue to keep our people safe and healthy from the impacts of the global COVID-19 pandemic, and work to advance peace and inclusion, economic prosperity, and climate action around the world.” One bone of contention could be the fate of the Keystone XL pipeline, which carries Alberta oilsands crude across the U.S. to the Gulf of Mexico. Many observers, including George W. Bush’s former envoy to Canada, David Wilkins, have said Biden will rescind the pipeline’s permit, which would hurt Alberta’s economy.
