Building Canada’s Electric Highway: Charging Up in Stewiacke, NS

Last week, we opened the first of over 50 sites that will make up Canada’s Electric Highway™ in Stewiacke, NS. This site is one of two sites being built in Nova Scotia; the other will be in Halifax. We were pleased to host several special guests, including Mayor Wendy Robinson and MP Bill Casey along with several electric vehicle owners and members of Next Ride.

Mayor Robinson spoke about how she was pleased that Petro-Canada has chosen Stewiacke to kick off Canada’s Electric Highway. She and the town council have been looking for ways to help Stewiacke and its residents become more sustainable, and is happy to see Petro-Canada providing leadership in this area.

MP Bill Casey addressed the importance for Canada to move forward in tangible ways to a low carbon future – supporting electric vehicles is one of those ways. The federal government was proud to support and contribute towards this initiative.

Below is a video of the launch of the site where you can view the full remarks from our guests.

Thanks to everyone who came out to the event! We’ll keep you up to date as we open more sites along Canada’s Electric Highway!
