Tesla Day

July 10th is Nikola Tesla Day in Ontario, in honour of the great inventor who changed the world by creating the AC power generation system with its roots here in Ontario, with the world's first hydroelectric power plant being built in Niagara Falls.

This visionary Serbian-American inventor dreamed of clean energy over 130 years ago and had many other scientifically revolutionary patents. I am proud to have passed the bill in 2021 to recognize him and his link to Ontario.
