January 4, 2019 – On Nov. 7, 2018, Justin Trudeau became the first sitting prime minister to address the Canadian Electricity Association (CEA).

“How electricity connects us as communities and runs through our daily lives,” he said. “At CEA, that’s what you do. You power our lives every day.”

Trudeau spoke to the association’s board of directors, corporate partners and stakeholders at its Powering Partnerships dinner at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa (see video). His keynote speech highlighted the importance of the electricity industry to Canada’s people and economy. He also discussed federal government partnerships in renewable energy projects, among other initiatives.

“The Canadian electricity sector, with low-carbon-emission nuclear generation and huge hydroelectric producers, is one of the cleanest in the world,” he said, noting 82% of electricity in Canada comes from sources that do not emit greenhouse gases (GHGs).
