Alberta premier: Rejection would mar relations

Alberta's premier says if the Obama administration rejects the Keystone XL pipeline it be would be a significant thorn in Canadian-U.S. relations. Premier Alison Redford said in a telephone interview that the issue would keep coming up. Redford is in Washington for her fourth trip to lobby on behalf of a pipeline that Canada sees as critical to its economic well-being. Alberta has the world's third-largest reserves of oil. The proposed pipeline would carry oil from the Alberta oil sands to Texas Gulf Coast refineries. The Obama administration is considering whether to clear the project. A decision is expected this summer. Obama's initial rejection of the pipeline last year went over badly in Canada, which relies on the U.S. for 97 percent of its energy exports.
