Time to Stop Ford Government from Unplugging Ontario from an Electric Car Future

A Message from Ontario’s Green Party

Posted August 16th, 2019 on Niagara At Large

This week, GM and Volkswagen announced they’d no longer be making hybrid vehicles.

The reason – THEY’RE GOING ALL-IN ON FULL ELECTRIC VEHICLES.

The writing’s on the wall for gas-guzzling cars, but the Ford government refuses to read it.

Tell the Premier to stop unplugging Ontario from an electric future.

Over the next 5 years, the global auto industry is spending a whopping $255 billion to develop electric vehicles.

MEANWHILE, ONE OF FORD’S FIRST ACTS AS PREMIER WAS TO CANCEL EV REBATES.

Auto makers are planning to release 200 new EV models by 2023, withn companies like Toyota pledging to make all its vehicles emissions-free by 2050.

MEANWHILE, THE GOVERNMENT HAS REMOVED EV CHARGERS FROM GO STATIONS AND

ELIMINATED EV CHARGING REQUIREMENTS FROM THE ONTARIO BUILDING CODE.

Ford’s anti-EV strategy is economically foolish and is holding us back.

Sign here if you want FORD to prepare Ontario for the EV future rather than sabotage it.
