OTTAWA — Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne is in the nation’s capital today to deliver a speech on energy strategy, climate change and infrastructure spending ahead of a meeting with her counterparts at the end of the month.

Wynne, set to make the keynote address at a Canada 2020 luncheon, will propose a new infrastructure partnership between the federal government and the provinces.

An official in Wynne’s office says energy and climate change will also be on the premier’s agenda.

Her speech, entitled A Vision for Canada at 150: Building a Real Economic Union, comes in advance of the premiers’ meeting in Ottawa on Jan. 30.

Wynne recently invited Prime Minister Stephen Harper to attend the meeting after the two met on Jan. 5 for the first time in more than a year.

The Prime Minister’s Office says Harper won’t attend, saying he meets regularly with the provincial premiers one-on-one.
