The Canadian government is taking heat for depriving its citizens of locally built electric cars. Specifically, the ZENN electric car being made in Quebec and being sold in the U.S. and Mexico is getting volt-blocked by the government. Transport Canada has been vague about their reason for not allowing the companies to sell their cars, so of course there are those who see it as a great conspiracy. Another electric car company, Dynasty, is moving out of Canada because of problems with the Government.
The Canadian Green Party has started a petition to get the cars approved, so we're sure that all of this will go away soon as the Canadian PM is totally BFF's with the Green Party. It makes us happy to live in a country where where the government encourages electric car companies like Tesla, or at least lets them take deposits for cars. [CBC]
