While President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau may seem like political opposites they do share at least one common goal -- approval of the TransCanada 830,000 barrel per day Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.
In October 2013, when Trudeau visited Washington as a Montreal MP he said that he supports TransCanada’s proposed pipeline that would carry crude oil from Alberta to refineries on the Gulf Coast because it would be “good” for Canada and U.S. He added that his position may surprise some, the CBC reported.
"My support for Keystone is steadfast. ...The fact that I'd be talking positively about the project I think got people thinking about the fact that perhaps it's not as bad as it's been caricatured," said Trudeau.
