Letters of support

Keystone XL is about more than building a pipeline; it's about building relationships, supporting and building communities and bringing something positive to the many lives and communities we improve. For years, we have worked hard to be a trusted neighbour, building strong relationships with hundreds of communities along the pipeline route and beyond. We welcome the letters of support we receive from people, associations and communities we impact in a positive way.
