KEYSTONE XL .. the mythic new jobs

Dwight Burke on Facebook:  “A Journal called “Penn Oil News ” reports that the Canadian company involved with the construction will be using Canadian Subs for at least the major portion of construction. “Oil and Gas Journal” is reporting that the steel pipe, pressurization valves, and ancillary conduit will be supplied by China, Ukraine(?) and a consortium based in Germany. These are the normal suppliers of material for the Canadian Company. There will be a benefit to the refineries which are working at 50% capacity. However the benefit will be unlikely to add any new jobs. I am not seeing any benefit to anybody but the owners of the refineries!!”
