The View From The Canadian Embassy
The Canadian Embassy in Washington hosted an event for innovative renewable energy companies on the same night as the State of the Union last Tuesday evening. Canadian Economic Minister Paul Robertson spoke at the reception about the need to create sensible policy to protect the environment and move the economy forward.
Seeing the Capitol Dome from the outdoor deck of the embassy on Pennsylvania Avenue made me think about how the United States and Canada are so intertwined. Imagine the potential if the two countries collaborated on a new clean energy foundation for our economies.
Later that night President Obama spoke about unleashing America's clean energy potential by investing in science and technology. Altogether it was an inspiring night in our Nation's Capital.
A couple more pictures from the event, including a look down Pennsylvania Avenue and Robertson speaking to the guests:
