April 28, 2016

The Center for Canadian Studies partnered with the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions to host Alberta Premier Rachel Notley for the 2015-2016 Thomas O. Enders Memorial Lecture on U.S.-Canadian Relations. The event was hosted at the Peterson Institute for International Economics.

In her first official visit to Washington as premier, Notley discussed Alberta’s climate and energy policies, as well as outlined opportunities for the province to collaborate with the United States. She discussed how Alberta seeks to become more innovative in fueling its economy, while being more environmentally conscious – such as phasing out coal emissions by 2030 and embracing renewable resources like wind and solar energy.

The Thomas O. Enders Memorial Lecture is named for the diplomat who served as U. S. Ambassador to Canada for presidents Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter. Enders held other important posts during his career including Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Political-Military Affairs, Assistant Secretary of State for Inter-American Affairs, and U.S. Ambassador to Spain. The annual lecture on U.S.-Canadian relations with a focus on economic issues is sponsored by the Thomas and Gaetana Enders Foundation.
