(FINKEL):
"
THE PRESIDENT'S REJECTION OF 'KEYSTONE X-L' IS A CLEAR EXAMPLE OF POLITICS COMING BEFORE THE INTERESTS OF AMERICAN WORKERS--AND AMERICAN CONSUMERS.  IT'S IRONIC THAT THE U-S WOULD STRIKE A DEAL TO ALLOW IRANIAN CRUDE ONTO THE GLOBAL MARKET--WHILE REFUSING TO GIVE OUR CLOSEST ALLY ACCESS TO OUR REFINERIES.  THIS DECISION IS AN ASSAULT ON AMERICAN WORKERS--AND AMERICAN ENERGY-SECURITY:  MOST AMERICANS HAVE SAID [THAT] THEY WANT THE JOBS AND ECONOMIC-BENEFITS THAT 'KEYSTONE X-L' REPRESENTS; UNFORTUNATELY, THE WHITE HOUSE HAS PLACED POLITICAL CALCULATIONS ABOVE SOUND-SCIENCE.  EVEN THOUGH MORE THAN SIX YEARS OF REVIEW HAS DETERMINED THAT THE PROJECT IS BOTH SAFE AND ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND, THE ADMINISTRATION HAS TURNED ITS BACK ON CANADA--AND ON AMERICAN ENERGY-SECURITY."
