"Never again will a company such as TransCanada so seriously underestimate the power of grassroots opposition," Paul Seamans, a member of opposition group Dakota Rural Action, said in a statement. "Thank you President Obama.

"It's just like somebody lifted a ton off my chest," said Paul Seamans, who leads the grassroots conservation group Dakota Rural Action.
From Bismarck, Wayde Schafer, conservation officer for the Dacotah chapter of the Sierra Club, joined Seamans in his support for Obama's decision.
Earlier this year, Seamans said TransCanada had bullied him into an easement agreement that would allow the Keystone XL pipeline to traverse one mile of his rural Jones County land. After his dealings with TransCanada ended with a perception of disrespect, Seamans said it felt great to have his time and effort validated.
Seamans said Dakota Rural Action will persist in their opposition of both the Keystone XL and the 1,134-mile Dakota Access Pipeline that would run through southeast South Dakota.
For now, Seamans will soak in Obama's decision.

"The Keystone XL is slated to cross my land by Draper," Paul Seamans wrote in his party status application. "I feel I was bullied by TransCanada in that they threatened me with eminent domain in my first contract with their land agent. Eminent domain is the government power to take private property for public purposes if just compensation is paid.
Seamans is also the chairman of Dakota Rural Action, a grassroots agricultural group that has opposed the pipeline since it was first proposed.

In South Dakota, rancher Paul Seamans says he initially opposed Keystone because of the way TransCanada "treated us, bullied us. Now, he says he's also concerned about the potential environmental damage, citing possible pipeline spills into waterways and the climate change impact of Canada's oil sands extraction.
So Seamans, who leads the grassroots group Dakota Rural Action, along with 42 other individuals and groups are challenging TransCanada's bid to extend its construction permit in South Dakota.
Still, Seamans says there are nearly three times as many groups or individuals challenging the construction permit now than did five years ago. "The tribes have got involved quite a bit more," he says, noting their concern about protecting tribal lands.
