'Look, Joe': Kenney wants Trudeau to push Biden on Keystone XL

"He understands that we are a partner and ally of the United States, which is a marked change from the last four years".

U.S. unemployment benefit applications jumped by another 1.3 million applications last week.

Biden's second order restores collective bargaining rights to federal government employees, and instructs agencies to do the preliminary work to allow him to issue a new order requiring federal contractors to pay their workers a minimum of $15 an hour and provide them with paid emergency leave.

But there's little doubt the fight is far from over, particularly if Alberta Premier Jason Kenney has anything to say about it.

"We're not going to let areas of disagreement prevent progress on areas where we can find common ground", Bradley said.

Biden's main initiative to turn the economy around is a $1.9 trillion "rescue" package that he outlined last week, followed by a promised proposal aimed at fueling job creation and spurring hiring.

National prevalence of the virus increased by half, from 0.91% in early December to 1.58%, the latest React study showed. Nearly 5 million people have already received a first shot.

Mr Biden's also restored collective bargaining rights to United States government employees, and moved toward providing them with paid emergency leave.

The decree, one of two executive orders he is to sign on Friday, represents one of Biden's first actions to revive the world's largest economy after Covid-19 caused mass layoffs that have left many people scrambling to pay the bills. "The Keystone XL Pipeline has been through more than 10 years of extensive environmental reviews, and today's announcement is a slap in the face to the thousands of union workers who are already a part of this safe and sustainable project".

"The president can and should refocus his administration on creating good-paying American jobs, not sacrificing our people's livelihoods to liberal symbolism". I will say that what is important to the president.everything we do must help advance working families and the American middle class, and that certainly includes any trade agreements.

Neil Bradley, chief policy officer at the Chamber, told reporters Thursday that Congress should act fast to approve the roughly $400 billion for national vaccination and reopening schools and other elements of the plan with bipartisan support, rather than drag out negotiations.

A federal official familiar with the call, speaking on condition of anonymity in order to discuss the details, said Kenney and several others urged Trudeau to take a hard line with Biden.

Prime Minister Trudeau raised the cancellation of the Keystone XL pipeline in a Friday telephone conversation with U.S. President Biden, but from all accounts Biden is sticking to his decision to call the whole thing off. "Biden really has a fondness for Canada".
