John Kerry Owns Stock in Canadian Pro-Keystone XL Firms

InsideClimateNews -- John Kerry's expected cakewalk to the U.S. State Department has delighted American environmentalists due to his stance on climate change, but the longtime senator owns stock in two Canadian oil companies that have pushed for approval of TransCanada's Keystone XL pipeline.

Federal financial disclosure records show Kerry has investments of as much as US$750,000 in Suncor, a Calgary-based energy company whose CEO has urged the U.S. to greenlight TransCanada's controversial project.

and that's of any surprise to anyone? I rather would be surprised to find out that there is someone high up who doesn't own stock in companies that support Keystone or other petroleum-related businesses.

LOL, Kerry will likely nix the pipeline but reasons far from environmental.

It would be a great way to have a capital loss on his taxes to reduce his tax bill!

Actual link to the original article.

John Kerry’s investments are in a blind trust. He may or may not own those stocks and, if he does, he most likely did not make the buy himself and most likely is unaware of such holdings. There is no news here; move along.

I am guessing a lot of wealthy people are invested in that, and maybe it is his wife. I am guessing he will put it in a blind trust or sell it if he get the Secretary job.

they are good investments, and they were no doubt made on his behalf by his wealth management advisors. He may not even know of those specific investments. YOU may hold shares in these companies and not know it if you have pensions or mutual funds.

I see absolutely no relevance or connection to Senator John Kerry's approval or to being our newly appointed Secretary of State. So he's been a smart investor. He's also been a great Senator and served the United States of America very well! Should every elected official be flogged for making great investments? I guess that we're going to have to clear out every governor, state official, to every office in our US government for their investments. When you have money, you make money. There are likely to be some great investors in GasBuddy members. Please take the negative energy some of you post & do positive things to help those trying to make a better & safer place for all!

Wow. He has almost as much wealth as a professional ball player or an entertainer. It would be hard to invest that much money without owning significant shares of a lot of companies. What are Obama's investments?

I don't begrudge him his investments and his $193 million if they were honestly gained. I do wonder why taxpayers are on the hook for his generous lifetime pension, lifetime healthcare, free travel other perks all our "public servants" receive from a broke country.
