Oil Change International reaction to State Department’s denial
of TransCanada request for suspension of KXL application

In response to the State Departments rejection of a request by TransCanada to suspend its application for the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline, David Turnbull, Campaigns Director at Oil Change International released the following statement:

“Today’s denial by the State Department is about as surprising as an eventual rejection of the Keystone XL pipeline will be at this point. TransCanada knows a rejection is just around the corner and made a desperate attempt at a political maneuver to avoid such an outcome. The President can end these games by rejecting the pipeline today. Our country, and our climate, would be better for it.”
