Panel Discussion
“Water, Energy and North American Integration”
Andrew Nikiforuk

Drawing on expertise from various perspectives, this 2007 “day of discussion” was designed to raise issues and stimulate dialogue on emerging domestic, bilateral and continental water policies of significance to Canadians. It focused on the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) that many contend is a blueprint for both the deep economic integration of Canada, the United States and Mexico, as well as a sharing of continental energy. The discussion was focused on the Discussion Paper, “On the Table: Water, Energy and North American Integration” by Andrew Nikiforuk. “On the Table” explores recent events relating to water export, including increasing water supply problems in the U.S. and Mexico, recent activities in Canada and the U.S. that promote the export of water from Canada, the myths of water abundance in Canada, the Security and Prosperity Partnership, and the water-energy nexus in a continental context.
