BC Premier Christy Clark believes Keystone pipeline decision is good for Canada

Canada's reaction to U-S President Trump's approval of the Keystone XL pipeline seems to be positive.

Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr says the pipeline would be very positive for Canada, creating 45-hundred construction jobs and deepening relations with the U-S.

BC Premier Christy Clark says she is in favour of jobs and resource development if it's done sustainably, ensuring it protects the environment.

"I'm sure there will be lots of days where many British Columbians look down south and don't agree with the things Mr. Trump said, but I think that today on Keystone, I think most Canadians will say, good, good on you, right decision."

Clark says the Keystone pipeline will create a lot of jobs and revenue for things like healthcare.
