President Biden spent eight years as VP to Barack Obama, and everybody remembers the “Solyndra” years ostensibly devoted to taking action on climate change when “dirty” jobs were axed in favor of “green” jobs.

Justin Trudeau is one of the most liberal leaders in the world and even he supports the Keystone Pipeline.
Because he knows the project's cancellation will be an economic disaster that is NOT based on science. https://t.co/youUN3ucFl
