That is what the Keystone XL project is all about. When built, it will be a part of the nation's energy future that, of necessity, calls for diverse sources. It will bring oil from Canada — our "stable, steady and reliable" neighbor, to quote President Obama, to the nation's heartland. That oil, by the way, has almost the same chemical composition as much of the oil that already flows through our pipeline system. The pipeline will also create jobs — thousands of them — at a time when Americans all over are desperate for work.
