Oil price differential's benefit? It honed Canadians' focus
The Globe and Mail
For the first time in three years, Canada is close to getting world price for its valuable oil. Trends and indicators suggest that sending out 3.3 million barrels of oil every day at bargain-basement discounts, sometimes as steep as 40 per cent, may now be behind us. So, instead of peddling our barrels to U.S. refineries at $80 or less, we're now back above the century line, getting almost $110 for our best light crude.

They may contain a group of versatile minerals the periodic table called rare earth elements.
