LCV Statement on TransCanada Requesting Suspension of Keystone Permit

Nov 2, 2015

Washington, DC – In response to TransCanada requesting a suspension of their Keystone XL pipeline permit, LCV Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld issued the following statement:

“Suspending the Keystone XL permit application at this point would be absurd. This is nothing more than another desperate and cynical attempt by TransCanada to build their dirty pipeline someday if they get a climate denier in the White House in 2017. President Obama and Secretary Kerry have all the information they need to reject this dangerous pipeline, and we are counting on them to do just that.”
