....Harper also addressed the fact that foreign money is going to Canadian environmental groups to fight the pipeline.
"It's one thing in terms of whether Canadians, you know, want jobs, to what degree Canadians want environmental protection," said Harper. "These are all valid questions, but just because certain people in the United States would like to see Canada be one giant national park for the northern half of North America, I don't think that's part of what our review process is all about."
Harper added that the pipeline is crucial from an "energy security standpoint," especially now that Iran is threatening to block the Strait of Hormuz.
"I think that just illustrates how critical it is that supply for the United States be North American," he said, according to Reuters.
