TransCanada attacks Cornell report on Keystone XL jobs
TransCanada has criticized a study from the Cornell University Global Labor Institute stating that the company's Keystone XL project would only generate up to 4,650 temporary direct construction jobs for two years.
"Why groups like (the Natural Resources Defense Council) and Cornell continue to question job creation in the United States is a concern," said Terry Cunha, a spokesman for TransCanada. "We fully understand the jobs that are needed to build a piece of infrastructure of this size. We like to think of ourselves as the experts," Cunha added.
