Blow to Keystone XL pipeline as judge revokes key permit

The Keystone XL tar sands pipeline has been dealt a major setback, after a judge revoked a key permit issued by the US Army Corps of Engineers. The judge in Montana ordered the Army Corps to suspend all activities until it conducts formal consultations compliant with the Endangered Species Act. The ruling is expected to cause major delays to the controversial project.

It's funny that they're worried about the building of a pipeline causing endangered animal problems, while there are millions of stray cats across the country causing mass extinction.

Never done when you have rich n powerful trying to route project in a way that let's them not sacrifice for integrity of laying the pipe in first place... Keep it off native lands.

A great example of how American constitution works. In a socialist=communist country the military gets total power and rolls over anyone standing in their way. Our constitution protects the individual and places the individuals rights Above the collective. Tyranny of the majority can only be stopped under our constitution.

As an Albertan who’s economy depends on the development of pipelines like these it is disheartening to see things like this happen.
