Hilary Clinton, the presidential candidate for the Democratic party, has said that the Obama administration’s decision regarding the Keystone XL pipeline is overdue.
Clinton commented: "I worked in the administration, I started the process that was supposed to lead to a decision, I can't wait too much longer and I'm putting the White House on notice. I'm going to tell you what I think soon, because I can't wait.”
Clinton has yet to state whether or not she favours approval of the pipeline.
In August, the White House said the US State Department continues to review TransCanada Corp.'s proposed Keystone XL pipeline from Canada's oilsands to Gulf Coast refineries.
