Media Advisory - Minister of Energy And Infrastructure To Visit Ottawa



    TORONTO, April 16 /CNW/ - George Smitherman, Deputy Premier and Minister
of Energy and Infrastructure, will tour Energy Ottawa's Chaudière Falls Number
2 Generating Station tomorrow. Originally built in 1891 and recently

recently certified by the Environment Canada EcoLogo program.
    The Minister will be in the area to discuss the proposed Green Energy
Act, part of the McGuinty government's commitment to protect the climate and
stimulate a green economy.
