Not only does the Inspector General need to look at conflict of Interest etc, someone needs to ensure that all aspects of the EIS are accounted for. As I understand, the production and sale of petcoke, a byproduct of the refining process of tar sands oil, has not been included in the EIS and should be. Since this is even more dirty than coal and it is being sold as a cheaper fuel to other countries, it needs to be included because its effects will be felt globally.

We can not stop fighting, till it is over, even then if Keystone XL pipeline continues. Too many people will be harmed for the greed of a few.

What happens if the Inspector General finds the other way and, after investigation, does not confirm that the ties constituted corruption? What if the investigation finds that ERM's consulting contract with a company in which TransCanada owns shares did not constitute a current business-relationship for the purposes of legal conflict of interest?

When demanding that people investigate, it is always important to remember that the investigation is not already done. I want to see investigation into such possible corruption too, but not a demand that a particular result be found from an investigation.

Noted and shared. Anything that can be done to expose the corruption is a very good thing. Unfortunately, mainstream media never seems to quite report these things so as to impart any "real" information about what's going on surrounding this pipeline; and so again, we have an uneducated public.

Shine a spotlight on the underhanded tactics that are being used to push the destruction of the boreal forest forward.

Another example of the old adage --"One hand washes the other"-- being true. Unfortunately, neither hand ends up clean and innocent people have to live with the consequences.

Hope they will listen. FACTS: NOT ONE UNPAID PROFFESSOR; GROUPS OR THE MAJORITY IN THE SCIENCEWORLD OR THE REST OF SOCIETY will go for fracking! The only one who wants are either paid and or are making a lot of money. It really should be very easy for the president to turn fracking down for good! AND that goes for every governements in the world!!!!

I don't understand articles like these that still insist Obama can get out of his commmitment to the pipeline..
He signed with the Canadians, and pipe has already begun to be placed....
