Pipeline Company Warns About Tactics Of Opponents

A spokesman for TransCanada defends the company for warning law enforcement that the tactics of opponents might well cross the line. TransCanada spokesman Shawn Howard accuses some opponents of the Keystone XL pipeline of going too far in their rhetoric. . .

Howard defends TransCanada’s presentation to Nebraska law enforcement that suggests anti-terrorist laws could be used if opponents get out of hand, should the president issue the permit to build Keystone…he’s quick to say extreme measures should be used only against extremists. . .

Howard says opponents have broken the law during construction of the southern part of the route…from Cushing, Oklahoma to the Gulf Coast.
