Webcast Recap

As the mid-term elections approach, one of the biggest questions this November will be about the future of the Keystone XL pipeline. On October 7, the Canada Institute convened a panel of experts to discuss the reasons for the KXL pipeline becoming the political football it is today, as well as what the proposed project means for the upcoming elections, the legal underpinnings of the approval process, and where the pipeline will go from here, both in Nebraska and in Washington, D.C.
