KAMLOOPS — With all this post-Trump inauguration talk of NAFTA and America’s return to a 1930’s style of isolationism, I’m wondering if we are missing something. Something, if you will pardon the pun, that trumps our oil, pipelines, natural gas, forestry and yes, even copper and gold.
It represents undreamed of national wealth yet holds the potential for unimaginable controversy and conflict. It is an economic resource and we own close to 20% of the world’s supply. And unlike oil and gas, it is impossible for humans and most of the planet to survive without it.
