Keynote Sneak Peek: The Honourable Gary Doer

The Honourable Gary Doer, Co-chair of the Canada Institute Advisory Board at the Wilson Centre, Former Ambassador of Canada to the United States of America and Former Premier of Manitoba, will be joining us as the East Coast Energy Connection’s first keynote address.

Few Premiers can claim they won three consecutive elections with successive, increased majorities, and even fewer still can say they did so while delivering balanced budgets during each of their 10 years in office. As the 20th Premier of Manitoba, Doer did just that, cutting taxes and leading strategic investments in health care, education, training and infrastructure. Beyond these achievements, he also worked closely with US Governors to strengthen Canada-US cooperation on trade, agriculture, water protection, climate change and renewable energy. 

In 2005, Doer was named by Business Week as one of the Top 20 International Leaders on Climate Change, and during his time as Premier advanced hydroelectric power’s role in Manitoba's long-term economic strategy. This commitment to renewable energy has consistently kept the province among the country’s energy leaders.

Mr. Doer will join us Tuesday, June 14, at the Saint John Trade & Convention Centre for East Coast Energy Connection’s first keynote luncheon address. We look forward to hearing his insights and expertise on energy and the environment, Canada-US energy relations, global energy markets, and the business of energy.
