White House says Canada election unlikely to affect Keystone timing
WASHINGTON Oct 20 (Reuters) - The White House said on Tuesday that the completion of the Canadian election was unlikely to affect the timing of a U.S. State Department decision on the Keystone XL crude oil pipeline.
President Barack Obama still expects to make a decision on the pipeline, designed to run from Canada to Texas, before leaving office in 15 months, White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters.
