America’s loss is China’s gain. In the aftermath of the Keystone XL fiasco, which will see not only a number of jobs “uncreated” but a natural source of crude lost, Canada is already planning next steps.

Canadian Natural Resource Minister Joe Oliver said relying less on the U.S. would help strengthen the country’s “financial security.” The “decision by the Obama administration underlines the importance of diversifying and expanding our markets, including the growing Asian market,” Oliver told reporters in Ottawa.”
