Keystone Protestors Attend Presidential Visit

Posted: Updated:
Not everyone who came to Cannon Ball was there to see the president. A handful of protesters from other states as far away as Alaska showed up to voice their opposition to the Keystone XL Pipeline.

President Obama has yet to make a decision on the project and these demonstrators want to make sure the project is never built.

"I'm not against oil, I came here in a car. A gasoline operated car. I'm not against oil, we will always need oil, but the things is that there's more responsible ways to drill for it. There are more responsible ways to transport it, there are more responsible ways that we can use it," says Floyd Braun of the Aleut Nation in Alaska.

The protesters set up a teepee at the security checkpoint and held up signs that the President didn't see because he flew in on a helicopter into Cannonball.
