Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, June 4, 2010 – Professor Stephen Hawking is a Distinguished Research Chair at Canada’s Perimeter Institute and, on June 20, 2010, he will be officially welcomed to Canada by the Honourable Tony Clement, Industry Canada Minister, and to the province by the Honourable Dalton McGuinty, Premier of Ontario. The greetings will be followed with a special presentation by Prof. Hawking. The activities will be broadcast on TVO on Sunday, June 20, 2010, at 8:00 pm EDT.

Dr. Neil Turok, PI Director, said, “We are very happy to have Stephen here doing science with other researchers at Perimeter Institute. On June 20, he will take time out to be welcomed by our many public and private partners, including the governments of Ontario and Canada, and to give a special broadcast lecture. Stephen is an exceptional communicator, and we are delighted to be able to share his talk on television. We are also looking forward to his impressions of the ‘Stephen Hawking Centre at Perimeter Institute’ now under construction.”

Stephen HawkingThis past October, when the expansion to PI’s facility was named in his honour, Professor Hawking said, “Our field of theoretical physics has been the most successful and cost-effective in all of science. Where would we be today without Newton, Maxwell and Einstein? Many great challenges lie ahead. Where this new understanding will lead, is impossible to say for sure. What we can say with confidence is that expanding the perimeter of our knowledge will be the key to our future.”
