Jim Flaherty concedes that the Keystone pipeline will create 40,000 jobs... in the United States

Today Jim Flaherty was in the United States to promote the Conservative vision on the Keystone XL pipeline.

He didn't talk about economic benefits for Canada, but he did talk about its benefits "for employment in the United States — more than 40,000 well-paying jobs"

What?

You mean you don't want the 40,000 jobs in refining and upgrading to be in Canada Jim?

The Minister of Finance should know that Canada lost 55,000 fulltime jobs last month.

Canadians deserve better.
