"There will always be residual risk in any project," says the report.

But "no regulatory concerns have been identified for the vessels, vessel operations, the proposed routes, navigability, other waterway users and the marine terminal operations associated with vessels supporting the Northern Gateway project."

Obama is holding up the pipeline while talking about tapping the Strategic Reserve. Don't you think the Keystone would provide longer-term relief than a one-time drawdown of the SPR??

Pipelines have been proven safe compared to oil tankers who spill monstrous amounts of oil products into the ocean all the time....

Nothig is 100% safe but moving oil by pipeline is safer than by ship.

We have gas lines all over the country. I believe that it is safer to transport through pipe than over the roads.

Obviously they do not have to contend with an EPA like the one in the US. NEWS FLASH! The US EPA is going to require humans to wear filters to reduce carbon emissions from breathing and farting. The filters are being manufactured in China and imported through their ports in Mexico.

Look at the Alaska pipeline, in operation for more than 30 with no major spills. It can be done safely.

All gas companies sell gas within a penny or two. Otherwise there would be no gas sold. Go Canada Go for your pipeline to the West Coast

It doesn't matter the whole delay has been just a stalling action. They were suppose to approve it originally in the first quarter of 2011. They have stalled about a year. A year longer even if they approved it today & they have no intention of that. That was obvious when Canada agreed to reroute it over all the debate & washington ignored that statement.

If nobama really cared about US jobs he wouldn't block this, there are a ton of jobs that could be created either directly on the pipline or in related fields of support before, during and after it construction
