Natural resources - from shale natural gas and oil sands to uranium and silver - are abundant in North America. These huge reserves have the potential to transform global commodities markets and contribute to the region's energy security. Increased production of energy and minerals could turn the U.S. and Canada into leading suppliers to China and other emerging markets. How can the U.S. and Canada encourage development of these natural resources? What policies are needed to open up access and allow industry to make long-term investments? What commitment should the industry make to the integrity and safety of their operations, and how can they be held accountable?
