In Vancouver, Clinton declines to comment on Keystone pipeline

(CNN) – Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton declined to comment on the ongoing debate over the controversial Keystone XL pipeline at an event Wednesday night in Vancouver.

According to multiple people in the room for Clinton’s speech to the Vancouver Board of Trade's Women's Leadership Circle, the former first lady was asked by Frank McKenna, former Canadian ambassador to the United States and the deputy chairman of TD Bank Group, about her opinion of the prospective pipeline project.

“She was asked to comment on both the climate change legislation in Canada and then it was tied to another question on Keystone,” said Iain Black, the president and CEO of the Vancouver Board of Trade. “She immediately differed to answer the question on Keystone.”

Washington (CNN) - Long before the ink had dried on the Senate deal to end the government shutdown and raise the debt ceiling, the writing was already on the wall for the Republican Party: The last three weeks have hurt them.
