Company Behind Keystone XL Oil Pipeline Sues U.S. Government


"TransCanada also plans to file a $15 billion claim under the North American Free Trade Agreement, arguing it had every right to expect the Keystone XL would be approved because the U.S. had approved similar projects."TransCanada, the company behind the Keystone XL pipeline, is suing the U.S. government because President Obama struck down the next step in the pipeline plan in November. The company says Obama's rejection exceeded his authority under the Constitution, NPR's Jeff Brady reports."


And mentions NAFTA as giving them a right to sue! ARRRGGHH

1. If TPP and TTIP becomes the law of the land, every corp will be suing

We won't run our own country anymore --- not that the American people do, but TPP hand even the decisionmaking of the pols and courts to foreign corps.

NAFTA - one of the worst things ever inflicted on our country, the start of domestic manufacturing downfall, and a gift to corporate America wanting to outsource for cheap labor.
