Canada approves new pipeline to carry tar sand oil to US

While the decision to build the Keystone XL pipeline has stalled in the US, Canada is pushing forward with its own transnational pipeline. Canada’s National Energy Board approved the Line 9B Reversal pipeline, which will carry crude oil from Alberta’s tar sands in the west to Montreal in the east. From there, it will connect to the Portland/Montreal pipeline in Maine. RT’s Ameera David takes a look at the path of the approved pipeline, and how environmentalists are reacting to the decision.
