    WHY:   Today, wind energy is the fastest growing energy source. Canada's
           wind energy industry is growing quickly too, powering more than
           860,000 Canadian homes. CanWEA estimates wind energy can satisfy
           20 per cent of Canada's electricity by 2025, elevating Canada to
           real player status in the wind energy sector. Achieving this goal
           will generate $79 billion of investment; create 52,000 high
           quality, full-time jobs, while adding 55,000 MW of clean
           generating capacity and reducing Canada's annual greenhouse gas
           emission by 17 Megatonnes.
