Joe Clark is pushing 80 years old, there was only one guy who actually accomplished a "second coming" and he was considerably younger than 80!

Oh that`s right............................................. .


you just keep on with the completely irrelevant observations...................................... ...


there is a stinking big auto plant in Aliston Ont as well.............................................


making Honda cars.............................................. .............


and a Chrysler plant in Streetsville Ont............................................... .....


and there WAS a GM plant in Oshawa................................


but GM makes rather crappy vehicles.......................................... ............


and as it turns out............................................... ................


NOT EVEN AN OUTRIGHT GIFT of several billion dollars...........................................


of our tax money could save GM Oshawa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


There IS A MORAL in there for LIE-berals!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


AND FOR silly old RED Tories as well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


regarding the FATE of Tesla.............................................


with its high costs........................................


and its products suffering from SHORT RANGE...................................


and awkward refueling issues...........................................


and....................................


MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL............................................... .........


Tesla batteries BECOME VIRTUALLY USELESS by the time they are ten years old!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !


Considering that THE AVERAGE AGE of a gas powered car on Cdn roads is ELEVEN YEARS OLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


We can SEE THE PROOF that ONLY an elite FEW Cdns will bother screwing around............................................ ...


with an electric TOY car that will be dead and useless while the gas car is going strong!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



The average Cdn simply DOES NOT HAVE the kind of cash needed to get into an electric TOY car....................................


that has NO MORE THAN HALF to TWO THIRDS of the service life of a gas powered car.......................................


AND STILL COSTS 25 to 50 percent MORE .................................................. ...


even with assorted LIE-beral subsidies applied!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!


If there is any justice in Canada..............................


then the word Tesla will pass into Cdn slang!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!


AS in : "its a Tesla"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!


Meaning any costly fiscal mistake!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!


Of the sort LIE-berals PREFER to support!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Or we could use the word another way................................


and suggest that anybody who thinks Toronto Maple Leafs.........................................


will win a Stanley Cup this year.............................................. ..


is "Tesla minded"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!


Cause IT AINT HAPPENING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And you have to be crazy.....................................


or "tesla minded" to assume Leafs will succeed this time around!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Maybe the Leafs could get Tesla to sponsor them????????????????????????

As long as those "big stinking auto plants" are paying wages it's probably not a bad idea to give them a pass!

WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!


BIG TIME WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Your thinking explains in GRAPHIC DETAIL......................................


why Joe Clark............................................. .......
WHO??????????????????????????????????


And his followers - muddled thinkers like you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Have been forgotten by history!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Every penny EXTORTED by LIE-berals............................................



and by Red Tory Donkeys........................................... ...........


and given to General Motors................................


or Bombardier........................................ ........


or Lavalin..........................................


or to Loblaws for those infamous freezers.......................................... ....


means YOU ARE CRIPPLING ANOTHER OTHER Biz...............................................


that had the guts and brains to make products people actually WANTED.....................................



and yet we are crippling the most successful groups with those idiot taxes...........................................


to SUPPORT A PACK OF HOGS...........................................


so that LIE-berals can BUY ENOUGH VOTES..........................................


to be able to continue their campaign of WASTE AND EXTRAVAGANCE.....................................


that we cannot afford and are well on our way to repudiating......................................


in the October election!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!

you can smell the fear

Ford announces it will bring an all-electric F150 to market "before 2022".

Ford was originally going to concentrate on hybrids but the auto sector is changing so rapidly those plans are gone.

There will be 3 all electric pickups on the road before Ford gets one, and that is a sector they simply cannot afford to get beaten up in.

It remains to be seen if legacy makers can and will survive the e tsunami.

They are so change resistant that I sort of doubt they are going to be able to survive in the new world.

And exactly were do you expect these charging stations to be getting their electrons from?
3/4 of our half educated and educationally brainwashed voters think that nukes are evil and that windpower can generate the power needed. ROFL

Maybe if or when Geez returns in his kosher interstellar mother ship, he will gift us with a functioning fusion power source or possibly a zero-point energy source.

Or maybe not!

The bicycle industry is going electric quickly.

5 years ago there were very few e bikes. Even 2 years ago they were rare.

This year I see as many e bike as traditional bikes.

He kills 2/3 of all people on the planet as His first move. You only have to not be part of that group. Simple, right??

How much of that has to do with vehicles being expensive, insurance being expensive and more and more people making a lot less money?

HemerHOID "SMELLS FEAR"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!


What he really means is.......................................


that HE SMELLS LIKE FEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Because if LIE-berals stop throwing gravy at companies...........................


that are PLAYING with electric TOY vehicles...............................


then the ENTIRE INDUSTRY WILL DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!


HemerHOID quietly IGNORES the fact that Tesla HAS YET TO MAKE A PROFIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


IN SIXTEEN YEARS of operation...............................


Tesla HAS YET to break even!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The continued existence of Tesla IS A TRIUMPH..................................


of SALESMANSHIP...................................... ......


OVER ENGINEERING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!


With that engineering FAILING to overcome the short life span of Lithium batteries..............................


with their RAPID reduction of already limited range.....................................


as the batteries age!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


LIE-berals are obsessed with electric simply because of the GRAVY they expect to GRAB...........................


if only they can find a way to FORCE US.......................................


to accept their COSTLY ELECTRIC TOYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What is driving the e bike revolution?

Baby boomers.

People who have tons of money and would love to ride a bike but they just don't have the physical capacity anymore.

E bikes make cycling accessible to everyone.
