If Keystone XL Pipeline Is Approved, I’m Blaming LA Kings’ Coach Darryl Sutter.

Darryl Sutter - President ObamaI don’t follow NHL hockey much but if I did, my team would be the Vancouver Canucks. Now, assuming the Canucks were my team, and President Obama approved the Keystone XL pipeline project, the first shirt I would buy would say:

“My favorite team is the Vancouver Canucks. My second favorite team is whoever is playing the LA Kings.”

Why? Because yesterday, President Obama met with the two Los Angeles teams that won their respective league titles – MLS’s LA Galaxy and the NHL’s LA Kings – and one member of the party, LA King’s coach Darryl Sutter, wanted to lean on the Prez a little and talk about the Keystone XL pipeline. Alberta-born Darryl Sutter owns a 3000 acre ranch near Viking and he wants to see the pipeline get built. From The Globe and Mail:

“I’m gonna ask him about it – damn rights I am. It’s 20 feet underground. How can we not want to keep North America [energy self-sufficient]? Why does the border have to separate that? It doesn’t make sense. For sure, I’m going to ask him.”

I hope Coach Sutter wasn’t as successful with the President as his team was in the Stanley Cup finals – we don’t need Canada’s dirty tar sand oil.

So if by some miracle, President Obama decides against the KXL pipeline, I think there’s an opportunity for TransCanada to domestically refine their own tar sand oil in Alberta and they can do it on 3000 acres of land near the town of Viking. Sorry coach. [The Globe and Mail]
