U.S. President-elect Joe Biden may end the Keystone XL pipeline project as one of his first acts in office, a source familiar with his thinking told Reuters it could happen as early as day one. Biden, who will be inaugurated on Wednesday, was vice president when Barack Obama rejected the $9 billion project in 2015. Then two years later, Donald Trump issued a presidential permit that allowed the line to move forward. Since then the project has seen opposition by environmentalists seeking to check Canada's oil industry and Native Americans whose land faced encroachment. Construction of the pipeline is well underway and if completed, would move oil from Canada's Alberta province to the U.S. state of Nebraska. In his 2020 run for president, Biden vowed to scrap its permit once elected. The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reported on Saturday, the words 'rescind Keystone XL pipeline permit' appeared on his list of Biden's executive actions likely scheduled for his first day. Biden's team did not respond to a request for comment, but Canada's ambassador to the U.S. said she looks forward to a decision that fits both countries' environmental protection plans. In a statement, Ambassador Kirsten Hillman said: "There is no better partner for the U.S. on climate action than Canada as we work together for green transition." Meanwhile Alberta's Premier tweeted he was "deeply concerned" by the report, adding the decision would kill jobs, increase U.S. dependence on foreign oil, and weaken U.S.-Canada relations.

Boris Johnson hailed a new "milestone" in the race to vaccinate the country, as more than five and a half million additional people will be invited to get their jabs from today. The Prime Minister said one million of the clinically extremely vulnerable, who have been shielding, and 4.6 million over-70s in England will join the coronavirus jabs drive. Ten new mass vaccination sites opened this morning. NHS England chief Sir Simon Stevens said the health service would start 24-hour hospital vaccinations within 10 days - something resisted by management consultants paid to speed up the programme. Ministers are increasingly optimistic they can reach their target of vaccinating the 15 million most vulnerable people with at least one dose by Feb 15. Are they on course? View our vaccine tracker and see the priority list for Covid jabs. Meanwhile, it emerged that carrying out tests of entire regions is being considered by ministers to help get the country out of lockdown. It came as Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said that by the "early spring, hopefully March" some restrictions would be lifted "gradually". As Political Editor Gordon Rayner reports, mass testing by whole regions could be used to swiftly move the worst-infected areas down the tiers. Donald Trump allies 'paid to lobby for pardons' A lucrative market has emerged for presidential pardons and clemency, with associates of Donald Trump allegedly being paid to lobby on individuals' behalf. Thousands of dollars have changed hands, according to documents filed by lobbyists to Congress. While there is no suggestion of illegality, the allegations will be embarrassing for Mr Trump. It came amid speculation he is seeking a pardon for himself and family members. As Mr Trump leaves office this week, Tim Stanley argues that it is rare for a president to have shown such little personal evolution in office.

China was the only major economy to avoid a contraction in 2020 as it brushed aside a collapse in global demand and strict lockdowns to curb Covid cases. The world’s second-largest economy ended the year on the front foot but still suffered its worst annual growth in decades, expanding 2.9pc, Beijing revealed. Growth in the fourth quarter beat expectations to hit 6.5pc year-on-year, the strongest level since 2018 even as global demand is hit by restrictions tightening in Europe and the US. China is expected to be the only major economy to enjoy growth in 2020 once final GDP estimates have been calculated despite being the first to use strict lockdowns to battle infections.
