The future is electric

Re: Electric car industry gets a jolt of reality, June 28.

Oh really, no future for the electric car? Premier Doug Ford is right to do away with government measures to make the change easier on those who want to drive a superior car that lasts much longer with fewer repairs?

There is no worse contributor to air quality and human health than the internal combustion engine. With the EPA in America dropping goals and standards, while Europe and China are fully engaged in the development of technology that will leave us behind, we are at a critical point in deciding where we belong. Do we want to have government promote changes that will fight climate change and provide hundreds of thousands of jobs, or do we want to hold back a technology for short-term gain?
