CBC News | November 02, 2016

Environment Minister Catherine McKenna said Wednesday the federal government will run all its operations on renewable energy by 2025, but that doesn't mean we should expect solar-powered tanks and fighter jets.

"We're talking about greening buildings," McKenna told CBC Calgary, after making the announcement at the Canadian Wind Energy Association earlier in the day.
