    On February 5, 2014, the Washington Post editorial board issued a statement on the Keystone XL pipeline. The board noted that, "The real downside to rejecting the project concerns jobs (construction would create at least several thousand), relations with Canada, and the message that arbitrary decision-making would send to investors and other nations." 

    Paul Koring, columnist for The Globe and Mail, weighed in on the KXL pipeline issue as well. Canada Institute Director David Biette is quoted in the article, stating: "It's politics, American politics, and has little to do with Canada." 

    On March 7, 2014, a new poll from ABC and the Washington Post indicated that public opinion in the United States strongly supports the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline.
