Signed. The rest of the Provinces not offering incentives need to step up to the plate too.

Hi, sorry if this has been covered but couldn't find anything. Anyone hear if there were any new incentives in the recent BC or Canadian Federal budgets?

I found this table at the end of the Federal budget showing $30m per year for electric vehicles (see attached) but not sure if that's just part of the previously announced investment in charging infrastructure

The budget item is for $30 million a year for 4 years beginning April 1, 2018. This is new money but it is not specific about the purpose. Best guess it is the money for NRCAN to implement charging infrastructure across the TCH. About 40 high speed DC stations needed. It is really disturbing that there is nothing for EV incentive while there are hundreds of millions to mitigate effects of climate change. Cart, horse?
