Renewable Rider Tom Weis will conclude his 2,150-mile Keystone XL "Tour of Resistance" at the fence line community of West Port Arthur in the shadow of oil refineries spewing emissions. He will be joined by Goldman Prize winner Hilton Kelley in denouncing the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline. Weis launched the tour 10 weeks ago at the U.S./Canada border and has pedaled the entire U.S. length of the proposed pipeline in his "rocket trike" in support of landowners and communities in six states fighting Keystone XL. Pipeline opponents will join him in demanding that President Obama reject TransCanada's presidential permit without delay.
