Has the Keystone Pipeline Stopped Being Controversial?

December 11, 2009

From the department of unfortunate timing:

On the same day the Mitchell Daily Republic says the Keystone pipeline has stopped being controversial, there’s news coverage of a racial discrimination lawsuit brought by a Keystone pipeline worker against the Keystone pipeline contractor for whom he worked. (The two links here are republished and do not have the same date, but both stories were originally published on the same day.)

Given that the Keystone pipeline was promoted in South Dakota as providing local employment, one of the interesting things about the lawsuit story is that the worker is from Illinois and the contractor is based in Pennsylvania.
