Various premiers met on Thursday and communicated their dismay at the attitude Trudeau is taking over the summary cancellation of the Keystone XL Pipeline on Wednesday.

According to anonymous sources, the discussion got "pretty heated", with many of the premiers being furious over the scuttled deal which threatens to have a very chilling effect on Canada's oil industry.

According to Global News, Ontario's Doug Ford is one of many premiers furious about the cancelled deal, allegedly calling Biden a "bully" during the meeting. Ford also pointed out the harrowing possibility of America buying less bulk metal and other goods from Canada if the trend continues, which could devastate Canada economically.

"Some premiers want to go to war," one aide close to the situation told Global.

Jason Kenney and Scott Moe, the premiers of Alberta and Saskatchewan respectively, also publicly slammed both Biden and Trudeau on Twitter:

"The United States is our most important ally & trading partner. As friends & allies, we are deeply disturbed that one of @POTUS first actions was to rescind the Presidential permit for Keystone XL Pipeline border crossing. That’s not how you treat a friend & ally."

"President Biden’s Executive Order to cancel the Keystone XL pipeline expansion comes as a devastating blow to North American energy security. Will the Prime Minister stand for the future advancement of sustainable and innovative pipeline development? Read my full statement:"

Trudeau has promised to bring up the issue on a Friday phone call with Biden, although sources also indicate that Trudeau may end up sacrificing the deal in the interests of a better overall relationship with Canada's southern neighbours.
