HOUSTON - Several big names are in town for CERAWeek including Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Trudeau was the keynote speaker at the annual oil and gas conference Thursday evening.

He spoke about the strong connection between Texas and Canadian economies.

"Texas exports to Canada worth nearly $20 billion dollars, imports from Canada: $15 billion. That translates into thousands of good Texan jobs, my friends. By our reckoning, 460,000 jobs."

Trudeau was also given an award Thursday evening for his push to balance energy production with environmental protection.
