TV coverage:

FOX23 went to a Keystone protest Monday and learned what some say is being overlooked.

"People need to wake up and know that this isn't your grandfather's pipeline. This is tar sands. And we don't know how to deal with it."

Early Hatley, an organized protestor, said, "These pump stations are going to be some of the largest users of energy in those states."

The Environmental Protection Agency has admitted it hasn't found an effective way to clean up tar sands oil spills.

People opposed to the XL pipeline point to the 2010 spill from a different Canadian company in the Kalamazoo River.

"To this very day it is not cleaned up after spending a billion dollars on that project," said Hatley.

Other protesters said tar sands itself is the problem. It's a form of oil they say is not worth the trouble.
