I doubt Redford needs a job: Anyone disagree?Obama has promised a decision by year's end on the $7 billion, 2,700-kilometre pipeline that would ship Canadian oil from Alberta to the Gulf of Mexico, traversing six U.S. states.
The project promises 20,000 jobs and the economy has been perhaps the only issue in the U.S. campaign so far.
Now, it is being described as a "defining political issue'' for the U.S. president as two of his core constituencies, the environmental movement and the U.S. labour movement line up against each other........
On Tuesday alone, readers of The New York Times website could watch a video by Robert Redford and read a story of heavy handed actions by TransCanada.
Redford called the Alberta crude "the dirtiest oil on the planet" and delivered a tough message to the U.S. president.
"Stand up for the future you know we deserve," he said. "Say 'no' to the Keystone XL."
