"Meet Canada, Keystone's Marquee Lobbyist"

Canada is "making itself seen and heard inside the Beltway, lobbying for approval of the Keystone XL pipeline, the controversial project that's become a lightning rod in the debate over climate change."

"A public-relations campaign the Canadian government first launched in May put advertisements in Metro stations throughout Washington, at Ronald Reagan National Airport, and in national media publications. The government plans to step up the campaign in September for what is expected to be the long-awaited homestretch fight over the project, which would send 35 million gallons of oil along the 1,700 miles from Alberta's oil sands to the Gulf Coast each day."
