Keystone Opponents Want Access to Documents Related to Project’s Approval

GREAT FALLS, Mont. — Opponents of the Keystone XL oil pipeline want to see emails and other documents related to President Trump’s approval of the project.

Canadian environmentalists who have sued to stop the nearly 1200 mile TransCanada pipeline say the documents could bolster their case that Trump’s decision was arbitrary and therefore illegal.

Government attorneys say the disputed documents include internal deliberations that don’t have to be made public.

Formal arguments in the matter are scheduled for Wednesday in Great Falls.
