BC Electric Vehicle Owners To Attend
Honourable Todd Stone, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure, invites Electric Vehicle owners to attend.
Next week, an important announcement in front of the BC Legislature will be made with the news media, members of the legislature and EV owners in attendance.
I am asking all EV owners to consider attending this event to show Canada how far we have come in BC in the adoption of electric vehicles.
As your President, I have been invited to speak following the announcement by the Minister. There will be a group picture taken for the record with all first time EV adopters in attendance. Our children will be proud of our efforts in helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in our province.
We will gather in front of the Legislature at 10:30 AM Wednesday November 4th. The Minister will be making an announcement at 11:00 am.
I am calling on you to please consider participating in this event as this will be an historic event for British Columbia. Please email me any questions you might have.
Manfred Wissemann, President
