Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he's "disappointed" the Obama administration has rejected the proposed Keystone X-L pipeline, which would have taken Alberta oilsands bitumen to refineries in Texas. Trudeau released a statement saying he respects the right of the United States to make the decision, and adds the very close relationship between Canada and the US "is much bigger than any one project." Foreign Affairs Minister Stephane Dion says even though the US rejected the Keystone project, Canadian oil will still get moved. (There's a critical reaction from TransCanada, the Calgary-based company behind the project. TransCanada CEO Russ Girling says in rejecting Keystone, the US chose misplaced symbolism "over merit and science -- rhetoric won out over reason.")
