US or Canada, sometimes you can't tell which nation is stupider. Do they leave it idling between uses?

Even better. I've seen an EV run out of juice on the road and had an ICE powered truck recharging it with diesel generator

It is pretty sad when basics like music, headlights, windshield wipers and heat affect your "fuel" mileage in an EV. What an amazing technology. God forbid you ever try running a/c in one.

As I've said repeatedly, EVs would be great in the city for those short drives. The cleaner air wouldn't hurt any. But you're pretty much screwed if you have any wanderlust. I just don't get why hybrids weren't good enough.

There is no such thing in reality as "liebarrel" education.

...as opposed to a conservative religious education of course.



I'm sure gawd made electrons, I wonder if these dumbies know they are white...like light.

The problem is with charging. The electrical distribution system simply does not have the capacity for every house on the block to be charging at the same time.

My bet as well. GM is building hydrogen multi use carriers for the Army. Unfortunately the hydrogen busses we had proved to be high maintenance. CNG ones seem to be working.

So basically EVs are big in Norway because of government financial incentives, not because they are any good.

Good GOLLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


How did I miss that piece of MADNESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I Must have been on holiday????????????????????????


In other electric TOY car news - my prediction that LIE-berals would end up..............................



providing civil service union HOGS with free or CHEAP access to electrical chargers.......................................... ......


for their electric TOYS IS COMING TRUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!


Durham Regional Headquarters has recently installed half a dozen electric TOY car fast chargers...............................


in the Region Parking garage for the use "of the public"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


But of course the location is such THAT ONLY HOGS can make use of the chargers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And if it was not for that LITTLE column in a local paper -nobody in the general public would know about the new chargers!!!!!!!!!!!!!



And the Region spokesperson does admit that "most of the costs will be recovered in fees from users"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


In other words - its NOT YET A FREEBIE....................................


BUT GIVE THEM TIME and it probably will be!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And of course the Region Parking garage has a NOTORIOUS HISTORY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


There were LOUD complaints in the area a dozen years back when the grand poohbahs chose to build a new headquarters................


in order to "improve govt efficiency" since previously various govt departments had been scattered around town........................


and by putting them all in one building - efficiencies were expected!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And of course the public worried that our HOGS would build a political Taj Mahal at public expense.....................................


and the price tag did give people pause for thought........................................... ....


but the HOGS assured the public that govt biz would be done faster and CHEAPER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


So the place was built even though cynics pointed out that at the rate our HOG population........................................ ..


was expanding with new hires - the building would be at capacity .....................


IN THREE SHORT YEARS and HOGS would return to being scattered around town!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The new building was completed and and opened with much fanfare - among HOGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And then the SQUEALING STARTED.....................................


as HOGS began looking for their PARKING PLACES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Because YOU KNOW PIGS MAY FLY - to Florida................................


and they may ride SeaDoos and atv`s and such BUT YOU KNOW.................................



but they dont ride no stinking public buses!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And after a hasty conference - the BOSS HOGS ADMITTED they had "FORGOTTEN" to plan for parking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


But - BY AMAZING COINCIDENCE there was a suitable large plot of vacant land available FOR SALE ..............................


right next to Hog headquarters!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!


And so $14 MILLION DOLLARS in "unplanned and unexpected" expenses later.....................................


the Region has a brand new 4 story parking garage!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !


Naturally parking in the new garage IS FREE for HOGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



And now they ALSO have access to those MONEY LOSING fast electric chargers......................................


courtesy of disgruntled local tax payers as well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A few years ago I might have agreed. I like them myself. The clean running of an EV with performance and mileage that is comparable to gasoline powered cars. But, govts are spending money on EV infrastructure. I don't see them going all out for hydrogen power as well. It'll really be up to the automakers to force the change.

Here is an article detailing the creeping poison LIE-berals are feeding our kids. With some comments of my own in brackets):

Toronto District School Board chair defends controversial Islamic guidebook

BY ANTHONY FUREY, POSTMEDIA NETWORK

Simon Wiesenthal Center calls on TDSB to pull Islamic guide

A letter written by the chair of the Toronto District School Board concerning their controversial Islamic Heritage Month guidebook chastises a national Jewish group and reveals the board was not as eager to tone the guide down as previously thought.

(Gosh- what a surprise that LIE-berals do not want to give up pushing Muslim issues on us! The chosen supporters of LIE-beral party are to be defended at any cost by muddled LIE-berals who think Cdns born here are INFERIOR to those who chose to come here- so says Our idiot Boy Justin!)

On Monday, I reported that the TDSB was temporarily recalling and revising their Islamic Heritage Month guidebook following a complaint from advocacy group B’nai Brith Canada.

The guide, compiled by volunteers but stamped with the TDSB logo, recommends a number of religious intrusions in the classroom ranging from the explaining and reciting of the Muslim greeting “As-salamu alaykum” (peace be upon you) during morning announcements to having children make paper cut-outs of famous mosques.

(As we already know- TDSB staff would be outraged if a Priest showed up with an invite to make cutouts of famous cathedrals! The separation of church and state does NOT apply to Muslims! This is LIE-beral bigotry!)

But it was the guidebook’s definition of the phrase Islamophobia that caused B’nai Brith to send off a complaint, calling it “fear, prejudice, hatred or dislike directed against Islam or Muslims, or towards Islamic politics or culture.”

The Jewish advocacy group in their original press release saw big problems with this: “The TDSB definition, if enforced, could lead to punishment for students or teachers who display ‘dislike’ towards the persecution of LGBTQ people in the Islamic Republic of Iran, harsh restrictions on women in Saudi Arabia, and Palestinian terrorism against Israelis, all of which are examples of ‘Islamic politics’.”

(LIE-berals appear to be working diligently to use Islamophobia as a hammer to silence critics of ANY LIE-beral policy! You can like them or love them but you are NOT permitted to hate them no matter how BADLY wrong they are!)

The board promptly informed B’nai Brith Canada that they’d be temporarily recalling the guide and altering its definition of Islamophobia to align with that of the Ontario Human Rights Code. It was unclear if they’d be addressing the document’s other troubling elements.

(Telling us they will be “aligning with Human Rights code” is an admission they will be adhering to LIE-beral reverse bigotry!)

But a letter from TDSB Chair Robin Pilkey not only suggests there will be no more changes, but that the one change they’ve agreed to was only made begrudgingly.

Pilkey writes about B’nai Brith’s concern with a “small section” of the guide and states that “it is not in any way, shape or form, a directive, nor is it enforceable as a policy would be.”

(No- its NOT official- its just unofficial- like the M-103 motion that is not official- but LIE-berals are working hard to MAKE IT OFFICIAL- just as soon as they think our guard is down! As some people have stated- M103 appears to have been a trial balloon to give LIE-berals feedback on how big they can make it legally!)

She then spends about a third of the letter chastising B’nai Brith over their complaint: “The TDSB welcomes important input from the community and from organizations such as B’nai Brith, however we must say that some of the suggestions made in your letter and subsequent news release are outrageous. To suggest that the TDSB is encouraging students to stay silent about what they experienced in their countries of birth or that the TDSB is somehow banning students and educators from criticizing executions and other human rights abuses around the world is categorically untrue.”

(And WHY should we accept TDSB assurances? Supported as they are by LIE-beral moves to BAN Islamophobia- WITHOUT even bothering to define it! Other than to make it clear that being critical of LIE-berals is COVERED by Islamophobia and WILL bring down the wrath of Human Rights but too often Wrong Commission! The attentive citizen will see an OMINOUS pattern here! )

The 170-page guidebook addresses issues such as women’s rights in Islam in an entirely positive light without acknowledging its challenges and controversies.

(If LIE-beral teachers are so certain of positive female civil rights under Islam then why not make female circumcision legal here? Why the LIE-beral silence about an operation that mutilates little girls for life? And since our legal resources are so limited that SEVEN accused KILLERS were released by LIE-beral hug a thug judges this past summer- without the bother of a trial because LIE-berals could not arrange trials in suitable time periods- WHY THEN should we be concerned about Muslim honour killings of Muslim women who are a disappointment to husband!)

“The TDSB is secular and the curriculum and teaching in schools does not promote any particular religious practice, denomination or sect,” Pilkey said in a separate e-mail to the Toronto Sun, addressing parents’ and educators’ concerns with the guidebook. “At the same time, cultural and creed-based heritage months are celebrations of Canadian diversity.” The goal of the guide, Pilkey explains, is “to create awareness and understanding”.

(That`s odd- I certainly have NEVER of a Jewish Heritage Month before? And what of The Holocaust- no special mention of THAT EITHER! In fact the last time I looked- LIE-berals had pretty much given up teaching WW2 history for fear of offending various groups! So why the big push for Muslims- who just happen to be engaged in a WAR with western values and politics?)

The TDSB’s Islamic Heritage Month Twitter account shows some schools are already into the swing of things, retweeting one North York vice principal’s post about reading a children’s book that discusses Islamophobia..

afurey postmedia

(On the plus side- maybe some of our kids WILL eventually get an HONEST education on Islamophobia? All they will need to do is look at the crap spouted at school and compare it to the violence and mayhem on their tv screens? But LIE-berals are not likely to like the conclusions the kids come too with that? Oh well, that`s what LIE-beral will have their legally enforceable version of M 103 for- to SILENCE DISSENT!)
