Why do Conservatives support Canada's Pipeline; to provide oil to China; with less than 100 permanent American?

jobs as the outcome. But subsequent analysis suggests that Keystone's job-creating potential is more modest. The U.S. State Department calculated last year that the underground pipeline would add 5,000 to 6,000 U.S. jobs. One independent review of Keystone puts that number even lower, with the Cornell University Global Labor Institute finding that the pipeline would add only 500 to 1,400 temporary construction jobs. The authors of the September report also said that much of the new employment stemming from Keystone would be outside the U.S. Transcanada itself cast doubt on its employment forecast when a vice president for the company told CNN last fall that the 20,000 jobs Keystone would create were temporary and that the project would likely yield only "hundreds" of permanent positions. http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-505123_162-57361212/keystone-pipeline-how-many-jobs-really-at-stake/

You are mixing up two different things. The first is that the XL Pipeline was suppose to go to Texas. Now that Obama has shot it down the Canadians are looking at piping this oil to the West Coast and selling it to China... More

The oil is not going to China. It is very clear that the oil will be sent to REFINERIES in Illinois and Texas. This means that we will have to recieve one less oil tanker per day since this pipeline will carry about 700,000 barrels per day. Furthermore, any number of additional real jobs is a plus.
