This was a tough day for our event, raining the first 3 hours.
Plenty of people still attended, but down significantly from last year.
We had a Tesla Model 3 from a member. Definite one of the stars of our show this year.
Other interesting exhibitions included a Model X, several Model Ss, many LEAFs, a bus, a Citicar and a 20 ft pontoon boat.
We shared the venue with Rise for Climate Action Winnipeg. Likely why attendance was still fairly good. Ross Redman gave a simple speech: I have driven an EV for 7 years. It creates zero pollution ANYWHERE, not even at the hydro dam. Each year it creates less CO2 then one litre of gasoline. There are options. You don't have to give your money to oil companies and pipeline companies. Drive an EV.
The Environment Critic for Manitoba attended (an opposition member in the Manitoba Legislature, who supports electrification of all transportation).
