In mid-April Premier Allison Redford made her fourth trip to Washington to reiterate her government’s support for the Keystone XL Pipeline project. She said the visit was to provide more information on Alberta’s regulations and she felt the trip was worthwhile. “We know there’s an awful lot of campaigning going on against Keystone. We want to make sure the other side is heard,” Redford said.  She added that while Alberta respects the regulatory process that needs to be carried out, she will return to the US as often as is necessary in order to promote the line. “It is a matter of building the case over time,” she said. She was joined by Cal Dallas, Minister of International and Intergovernmental Relations, and Diana McQueen, Minister of Environment and Sustainable Resource Development.
