The proposed Keystone XL pipeline is likely to be discussed when Canada's Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird meets with newly appointed U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry Friday afternoon in Washington, D.C.

With the fate of the controversial $7-billion proposed pipeline still up in the air, there's "no doubt that that subject will come up, as it always does with our Canadian counterparts," said U.S. State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland during Thursday's daily U.S. press briefing.

Kerry and Baird are expected to discuss "ways to deepen co-operation across the extensive U.S.-Canada relationship, including in bilateral trade, investment, energy security and environmental stewardship, as well as securing and streamlining trade and travel at our shared border," said Nuland.
