Citizens -- Voices, Crying in a Wilderness

 The Keystone XL hearings held by the State Department were conducted by Cardno Entrix, which just happens to be employed frequently by TransCanada   Cardno Entrix made sure a large number of construction workers were transported in to the hearings, many from hundreds of miles away, all repeating the same mantra:  this pipeline will give us jobs.

For a close-up of what it was like to testify at the hearings, read this:
