Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - During Heidi Heitkamp's stop in Fargo this week, the freshman U.S. Senator had a pipeline criticism to level against the Obama administration.

Heitkamp, a proponent of the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline, says it's time to build.

Senator Heidi Heitkamp/(D) North Dakota: "If you talk with people who oppose Keystone, it's not about the pipeline. This is state of the art. It would have tons of safety precautions. It's not about the pipeline itself. What it’s really about is the development of oil sands up in Canada."

Heitkamp says she believes the United States relationship with Canada has been hindered as a direct result of the failure to pass the Keystone XL project.
