KXL's long uphill grind

Peter Foster analyzes the many obstacles in the way of the Keystone XL pipeline:
... Keystone has become the most contentious issue in U.S.-Canada trade relations since the 1980 National Energy Program. ... 
... Keystone XL’s opponents are not reasonable people. It has become a “pipeline in the sand” for a radical U.S. environmental movement, which sees stopping it – and holding up development of the oil sands – as a symbol, and evidence of their coercive power, from which governments, and corporations should learn. Or else. 
... What is truly astonishing is how these activists, who have little or no concern for either science or jobs, are given equal time – and even supported — by Canada’s media. ...
