Electric-vehicle plan hits roadblock at minister’s office
CBC News August 18, 2016
A Liberal promise to "rapidly expand" the federal fleet of electric vehicles has stalled at Natural Resources Canada, a showcase department for green technologies.
A project to replace the minister’s gas-guzzling Chrysler 300 with a plug-in electric car has been abandoned, after officials decided Ottawa doesn’t have enough charging facilities.
The promise mentioned "rapidly" expanding the federal fleet of electric vehicles - it would seem that plan is currently put on hold because of a lack of charging stations, thereby breaking this promise.
