Thanks, Paul, I can always imagine you talking to me when I am reading you. Very interesting as so many of us mull over the purchase of an EV. Also, while I have you, I am LOVING Alex on Twitter !! He projects positively like no one I have ever met. You must be delighted.

Hi Paul, I read it this morning and want you to know that it was really a great piece. Having read of your sojourn while it was happening provided an exciting way to keep informed of much of what was in your column. To reread parts it in the G&M was perfect as the info needed to have a much wider audience. Kudos to you!!!!!

That was a great column Paul. I really liked that big picture look at your adventure. The only nits I would pick -- and I hasten to add I carry no water for Tesla, nor do I own one (yet) -- involve: a) your reference to the $80,000 Tesla. An entry level Model 3 could be purchased in Ontario today for about $49,000, after the federal subsidy. If you were to, say, trade your Leaf in on one, your net cost would be about $29-k for said Tesla (before taxes and fees) and... b) it's worth noting that while it might not be of much benefit to Leaf owners with their unique CHAdeMO charging ports, the increasing move by non-Tesla car makers to Tesla-styles NACs charging standards will revolutionize long distance electric driving in Canada since almost all EV owners will be able to charge at ultra-reliable Tesla Supercharger stations.
