No one in his right mind is ready for this charade about to be forced upon us. Has no one learned anything from the storm on the coast two weeks ago? Idiots!

LIE-berals plan to use their carbon crap and trade scam to make sure we cannot heat our houses!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Make sure we cannot afford hot water to clean and bathe with!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Make sure we cannot get to work since gas powered cars will be illegal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And our public transit is ALREADY OVER LOADED and worn out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And of course those costly electric TOY carws that are beloved of LIE-berals will be too costly for most of us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Of course it wont really matter what the electric toy cars cost because the carbon crap and trade scam will kill off most of our jobs anyway!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


So we can just hang out around the "temporary homeless shelter and wait for some civil service union Hog to hand out the bowls of soup and bread!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Staying home and having LIE-berals laying us might not be so bad?????????????????????


But will LIE-berals respect us in the morning?????????????????????


HELL NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


THEY DONT RESPECT US NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Even though Our idiot Boy and his loser LIE-berals have not yet managed to turn Canada into a Soviet dictatorship just yet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


But LIE-berals ARE WORKING ON IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


DECEIT ABOUT LIE-BERAL GOALS AND TRUE MOTIVES IS THE ORDER OF THE DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Police departments starting to adopt electric vehicles
\they make sense for commercial purposes given their lower operating costs.

Canada is definitely NOT ready for electric vehicles. Most of our rivers have already been compromised and much of our animal habitat has been flooded, while we in the enviable situation of having billions of barrels of a valuable resource sitting in the ground and ready for use. Only idiots would wish otherwise!

The point was, "why switch when gas is as plentiful as ever and it will be cheap for some time'.

The part they are missing is gas may become 'rare'.

There are scads of Teslas around where I live. It has become quite a common car marwue, in fact. It is downright trendy to own one and the local Tesla dealer (Yes, there is one in Oakville) can't get enough inventory to satisfy the demand.

You might ammend your statement to read "Rural Canada is definitely NOT ready for electric vehicles."

88% of us live in urban areas, btw.

Just like gun laws, car suitability for major Canadian cities depends on how they work for farmers.

You KNOW IT AINT GOOD FOR YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !

iF LIE-BERALS cared about farmers they would not be ramming wind towers down their throats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


If LIE- berals cared about farmers they would do more to protect farmers from drunken idiot thieves like Coulton Boushie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



If LIE-berals cared about farmers they would not be giving farmers a hard time about owning guns they use to protect livestock from coyotes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This could have happened a long time ago, we would have never used petrol and diesel cars and polluted our cities.

But I am happy that it is happening now.

Germany just announced a plan to decommission all 84 of its coal-fired generating stations over the next 20ish years.

Another good day for the green side

POOR STUPID HOID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Still trying to sell his mouldy green vision of the future - that sensible people recognize as a mouldy green DELUSION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Last fall the Germans signed that multi billion dollar natural gas deal with Russia- so they would have the fuel they NEEDED to replace the coal fired plants!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


So now the services are in place - since Germany does not have any racist natives on reservations to black mail their govt into paralysis like Canada does- and now they can start closing the coal plants and replacing them with natural gas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


But our foolish Hoid does not mention that neither Germany nor Spain- two of the FORMERLY most enthusiastic supporters of investment in green power WILL NOT be expanding their mouldy green options!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Yes- the Europeans are no happier with their mouldy green than Ontari-owe is with the Wynne- bag LIE-beral version!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Oh Hoid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


With supporters like you - LIE-berals are truly DOOMED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


That $42,700 USD looks PRETTY SICK next to the $20,000 Cdn for a nissan Qashqai!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!


And HOW MUCH ARE you going to pay in extra taxes to support the LIE-beral sponsored electric TOY car subsidies??????????????



And how much will you PAY to get a fast charger installed in your home so it wont take too long to get your electric Toy recharged????



And how many places will you NOT BE ABLE to drive your electric Toy while on holidays for fear of travelling out of reach of a suitable charger?????????????????


And how much more in taxes will you pay to have LIE-berals install faulty, easily broken and COSTLY fast chargers?????????????


You DO REMEMBER what a HASH LIE-berals have already made of their first contracts for installing chargers mainly in Toronto dont you??????????????????????????


And what kind of CLUB will LIE-berals have to BEAT US WITH in order to persuade us to BUY those COSTLY electric Toy vehicles with their LIMITED RANGE, modest cargo capacity, absolutely ZERO trailer towing capacity and awkward refueling system???????


As for NO BRAKE JOBS- I have not herd that the El CHEAPO Tesla 3 base model has that dandy dynamic braking system so I call BULLSH+T on your brake claim!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Come on now Hoid- admit it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


You are just as disgusted as the rest of us with LIE-beral BULLSH+T and you are saying all that CRAP just to injure our LIE-beral overlords!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!1

This is actually looking to be the case.

GM is going all-electric by early next decade - which means within 5 years.

The decision has been made. I hope hydrogen technology continues to evolve. It might be an all around better solution.

We'll go back to burning coal to satisfy the sudden spike in demand for electricity to charge cars and generate hydrogen gas.

... coal-fired cars in our future ...

So............GM is going to produce costly NOVELTY electric Toy cars for a tiny niche market until it folds up and disappears completely!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I am so glad you straightened that out for us HOID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!


After all- TESLA has set the electric Toy car marketing bar pretty high!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Offering high cost and requiring lots of insulting tax subsidies that are all being revoked by Cdn govt at the instruction of disgusted Cdn voters!!!!!!!!!!


And Tesla has YET to make a profit..........................though Musk assures it it WILL HAPPEN at some point in the future!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



If only he can bamboozle investors for another decade or so!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And of course Cdns are breathless with disinterest regarding how badly electric Toy car batteries will do in a major cold spell!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Does ANYBODY want to ask how many electric cars WOULD NOT HAVE MADE IT HOME in the GTA on one single battery charge in the last couple of weeks with the snow and extensive traffic delays!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And in related news- General Motors has decided to PHASE OUT production of sedans entirely because Cdn motorists prefer SUV`s and pick up trucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And a $42 grand U.S. dollars BASE MODEL Tesla still looks STUPID compared to a $20 grand Cdn dollars Nissan Qashqai!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



And poor HOID thinks he can SELL Tesla cars based on LIE-beral Faje News and bait and switch LIE-beral financing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tesla and Mercedes said to be in deal to produce e version of Sprinter vans.

The long and troubled relationship between these two companies notwithstanding, I have long said that an e van is required to cement the commercial viability of the e vehicle. The Dodge Caravan currently holds the position as the most widely used commercial vehicle in the North America and needs to be displaced.

It is good to see Mercedes swallowing what little pride it has left to throw in with Tesla again.

It must be hard to cooperate with the company that is putting you out of business.

Since beating them is out of the question joining then (again) may be the only answer.

Electricity is a finite resource. I would agree with them when the technology is developed to the point of them being able to run from Solar panels mounted on the roof.
