Article: Keystone Be Darned: Canada Finds Oil Route Around Obama

Long article on how Canadians have responded to American dithering about the Keystone pipeline.

The article describes the situation and a proposed solution: using existing rights-of-way to build a pipeline from the oil sands in northern Alberta to the Saint Lawrence Seaway (about 2900 miles).  It describes the people involved. I am impressed by the number of people willing to risk large amounts of their own money to bring this about.

It would take to 2016 to get the project approved. And 2018 to get it built. And it would cost $11 billion (American).
