I believe it was because the keystone was not going to give a lot of americans long term jobs.  There are other reasons also.  Like, america was going to get a bad deal.  Also, a lot of the oil was not for the USA.

    You kidding me?  That project would have meant thousands of short term (high paying) construction jobs and hundreds of permanent jobs.  You have mortgage payments?  Or you on subsidized housing?  If you have huge bills to pay, any freaking job is better than none!  Jesus Christ man!

    Yea, and some of that oil is going to other countries.  So what?  Its going there anyway.  Through our pipeline or not.  I'd call that a good deal.

        Whats the construction schedule?  A year?  Two?  Whats your alternative?  McDonnalds or Walmart?  What do you do for a living anyway?  You don't seem to care about people who work for a living.

          Deals like that should be long term for AMERICANS!  Not long term for Canadians on AMERICAN SOIL.  Buying homes, raising a family = LONG TERM support.

                  How would you know?

                  The only way to get an idea of what percentage votes will be from the exit polls, but if Trump continues to insult five star families, part of the base will be voting for Hillary.

                      just put Bernie back in.

                      Bernie is an independent that ran as a Democrat. Only time will tell if his agenda continues.

                        How does a design engineer act?  Why are you getting mad?  It's just opinions.

                          That is why I can not see myself voting for trump.  Trump should have changed buy now, but he is not going to change.  He needs acting classes to start to act presidential.

                            Trumps team had nothing to do with it.  A year ago he wasn't the nominee.

                            He had no say, but he was informed of the dates last September and had no problem with them until now.

                              bigbear you're too much.  Who will Hillbilly debate?  Herself?  They'll reschedule the debate dates.  Nice to have a Presidential candidate with conviction.  Tired of wishy-washy politicians.  Did you know Hillary (a proven liar) was thrown off the Watergate commission for stealing evidence?  That's the type of person you want as President?  Really?

                              There were no presidential debates in 1964,1968 or 1972 so it's certainly possible they cancel them all, i don't think either candidate wants to debate right now.
