Hillary Clinton weighing 2016 White House bid

Former U.S. secretary of state Hillary Clinton discusses her new book "Hard Choices" in Toronto on Monday, June 16, 2014.


TORONTO – Former U.S. secretary of state Hillary Clinton says she hasn’t decided on a second bid for the presidency.

Clinton also mentioned the Keystone XL pipeline in a speech to a business audience.

She said Washington’s long-awaited decision to approve or reject the pipeline should not become a symbol of the Canada-U-S relationship.

Clinton said the project — designed to move Alberta crude oil to the Gulf Coast — has become “a proxy for everything” as proponents and critics lock horns over its fate.

The U-S decision on the pipeline has been stalled while the Obama administration drops hints that Canada must do more on the environment.

Clinton also gave a nod to Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne, who last week became the first woman and the first openly gay person elected to the post.

Clinton said it was encouraging to see Wynne run a “very positive, agenda-driven campaign” and said it was something that was “overdue” in many parts of her country.
