Ben Lobb, Member of Parliament (MP) for Huron-Bruce, on behalf of Prime Minister Stephen Harper, presented a certificate of recognition to Bruce Power as a leader in Canada’s nuclear industry and as the Country’s largest public-private partnership last week.

I’m honoured to present this recognition to Bruce Power as not only a respected employer in my riding but as Canada’s largest public-private partnership,

Lobb said.

“The Bruce Power public-private partnership model has worked and is positively recognized not only across Canada but around the world. Bruce Power also generates 30% of Ontario’s electricity at 30% below the average cost, and that’s good for our economy.”

Last week, Bruce Power launched a new outreach effort to communicate the facts about Ontario’s Nuclear Advantage at www.ontarionuclear.com.

About Bruce Power

Bruce Power operates the world’s largest operating nuclear generating facility and is the source of roughly 30% of Ontario’s electricity. The company’s site in Tiverton, ON, is home to eight CANDU reactors, each one capable of generating enough low-cost, reliable, safe and clean electricity to meet the annual needs of a city the size of Hamilton. Formed in 2001, Bruce Power is an all-Canadian partnership among Borealis Infrastructure Management (a division of the Ontario Municipal Employees Retirement System), TransCanada, the Power Workers’ Union and the Society of Energy Professionals. A majority of Bruce Power’s employees are also owners in the business.
