Watch the video

An image of an atom appears on a background of various shades of blue, along with a flash of light that fades to reveal the gold and blue CNSC logo with a maple leaf in the centre. The logo moves to the right of the screen and the words “65th anniversary” appear on the left. The logo fades away to reveal the words “CNSC 65th anniversary message from Alan T. Prince”.

Mr. Jennekens appears on screen to deliver his message. He is seated and occupies the right-hand side of the screen. On the left is a picture of a man in a helmet working at a nuclear power plant. He delivers the following speech:

"My name is Alan Prince.

I’m very happy to be here to help you celebrate the 65th Anniversary of the Nuclear Safety Commission. It was the Atomic Energy Control Board when I knew it... it’s now the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission.

I was pretty glad to be in on the early days of the Atomic Energy Control Board. Everyone thought atomic energy was a joke at that time but eventually, and now, it’s a principal source of energy throughout the world.

I’m glad I was in on the early days of its development and I hope people continue to manage it with care and safety.
I want to offer my congratulations to all involved."

Upon the speech’s completion, Mr. Prince’s face fades out and the CNSC logo reappears with a flash of translucent light passing over it. The following sentence appears: “Copyright Her Majesty, the Queen in Right of Canada as represented by Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission, 2010” The word “Canada” written in white, along with a Canadian flag, then appears on a black background, and the video ends.
