Canada’s natural resource minister rebuffed calls to issue sanctions on the United States over President Joe Biden‘s move to cancel the Keystone XL pipeline expansion.
“Madame Speaker, I have not yet heard a single argument that would convince me that a trade war is in the best interests of our oil and gas workers,” Seamus O’Regan said during an emergency debate in the House of Commons Monday evening.
He said the government has a “responsibility to Albertans to safeguard our relationship with the single largest customer for Canadian crude.”
His comments come after the federal government faced calls to impose sanctions on the U.S. after Biden signed an executive order just hours after taking office to revoke a permit that would have allowed the expansion to continue.
