Canadian ambassador Doer push for Keystone XL oil pipeline
pipeline in Tilden, Neb. More than three fourths of Nebraska landowners have signed agreements to let pipeline developer TransCanada run the oil line through their property. Many have received six figure payments for easements and temporary crop losses while the Adidas Neo Grey Blue pipeline is installed. North Dakota Sen. John Hoeven and Canada's ambassador to the United States are continuing their push for quick approval of the Keystone XL oil pipeline.
Hoeven and Canadian Ambassador Gary Doer (DOO' ur) met with North Dakota trade representatives Wednesday in Bismarck. They say TransCanada's proposed pipeline will help provide energy security and economic growth for both nations.
