Biden's energy policies 'hard to understand': Premier of Alberta
Premier of Alberta questions Biden’s stance on Keystone XL, Nord Stream 2 pipelines
Premier Jason Kenney said it is hard to understand Biden turning to OPEC for more oil after canceling the Keystone XL pipeline.
The premier of Alberta, Jason Kenney, questioned why the Biden administration would cancel the Keystone XL pipeline, then ask OPEC for more oil, in an interview with Fox News Digital, saying he "would prefer that the administration look to Canada, rather than OPEC, to be a greater source of energy for the American economy."
On his first day in office, President Biden signed an executive order revoking the permit granted to the Keystone XL Pipeline, a promise he made during the campaign.
Kenney noted Canada is the largest source of imported U.S. energy, and it is a benefit for Americans to have energy coming from an ally, rather than OPEC (Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries) or Russia.

"Alberta is the largest source of energy for the United States," Kenney said. "Over half of U.S. oil imports come from the province of Alberta in Canada, far more than the U.S. brings in from OPEC. And that’s a great thing for Americans, to be able to have access to a secure and friendly source of energy from your closest friend and ally."
Kenney said he did not understand Biden’s move to cancel the Keystone XL Pipeline on his first day in office, because the pipeline could have displaced oil imports from Russia and OPEC.
