Clinton gives hope to both sides of Keystone debate

Washington (CNN) – Hillary Clinton didn't say Monday what she thinks the U.S. State Department should do on the Keystone XL pipeline, but the former secretary of state did give hope to both sides of the debate over the 1,179-mile-long project that would move oil from Canada to refineries in the United States.

Both pro- and anti-pipeline activists, for which there are many, will hear positive notes from Clinton's remarks at the Toronto event. While tweaking and heralding both positions, Clinton said she hoped the United States and Canada would not "put our relationship on the backs of this decision."

It's official: Ted Cruz a citizen of the U.S. – and the U.S. only

(CNN) – It's official. Sen. Ted Cruz is now a citizen of the United States - and the United States only.

If you remember, the Texas Republican was born in Canada to an American mother and a Cuban father. As such, he was a dual citizen - an American because of his mother, and Canadian because the country, like America, grants automatic citizenship to anyone born there.

Petition to deport Justin Bieber may be reviewed by White House

(CNN) - It looks like the White House may have to weigh in on the Biebs.

A petition calling for the deportation of Canadian-born Justin Bieber surpassed the 100,000 signature threshold, meaning the White House must, by its own rules, issue a response.

Titled, "Deport Justin Bieber and revoke his green card," was created less than a week ago and quickly amassed the required signatures long before the 30 day deadline for the "We the People" petition program.

Canada will look to China to sell its oil

Ottoway (CNN) - In a phone conversation that came as little surprise, President Barack Obama called Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper Wednesday afternoon to explain why he had rejected the Keystone oil sands pipeline project.

In a statement released by Harper's office, the president is quoted as saying that the decision was not a decision based on the "merits of the project" and that TransCanada, the company looking to build the pipeline, could reapply for permission after a new route had been developed.
