Stop Stephen Harper's Assault on our National Parks

If Stephen Harper wants to boost tourism, why has his administration cancelled all advertising for Canada in the U.S. market?

In her note, Ms. May states that she sent Mr. Kerry "4 facts about Keystone XL." Unfortunately, two of Ms. May's facts aren't actually facts, and two of her facts are so lacking in context as to constitute merely factoids.
