Harper Says U.S. Approval of Keystone Pipeline ‘No Brainer’

Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper said U.S. approval of TransCanada Corp.’s proposed $7 billion Keystone XL pipeline is a “no-brainer” because it will create jobs and add to America’s secure energy reserves.

“The need for energy in the U.S. is enormous, the alternatives for the U.S. are not good, on every level,” Harper said in an interview on Bloomberg Television. Harper said he’s “confident” the pipeline will be built.
