Christie heads to Canada, beating drum for Keystone XL pipeline

Chris Christie will arrive in Calgary today on a Canadian trade mission with a specific focus on energy issues, and insiders familiar with his plans say he will again call for $8 billion Keystone XL pipeline to be approved as part of his broader remarks about energy. The Canadian trade junket carries distinct political benefits for Christie, who’ll get to burnish his foreign policy credentials while once more calling for completion of the environmentally controversial, a cause long championed by arch-conservative oil magnates Charles and David Koch, whose combined net worth is above $100 billion and whose Koch Industries is the second largest privately held company in the U.S.
