NB MP calls for eastbound oil pipeline

A New Brunswick MP says oil from Alberta could be piped eastward to be processed in Saint John.

John Williamson says the recent decision by the United States to delay the Keystone XL pipeline is just one reason for his suggestion.

The Conservative MP who represents New Brunswick Southeast says getting Canadian oil to Saint John could renew talk of building a second Irving Oil refinery and create jobs.

Irving Oil spokeswoman Lesley Dickson says the company has processed Canadian crude oil in the past and could do so again if it is logistically viable.
