    Canadian Tire missed an opportunity here to kick start a national network of fast chargers at their stores. Shame.

    Some Canadian companies are short sighted. They like mature business, earn money that can be forecasted. They tend to be more conservative than American counterparts.

    Canadian tire does significant sales in both auto parts, fuel, fluids and auto service. None of these businesses are going to improve with the development of EVs. I can see why they may not be particularly motivated to promote them.

    Canadian Tire is a franchise system of stores. Nothing is easily done with this model.

    The Huntsville, ON is supposed to be open by the end of this summer.

    I'm excited to hear that York Region will be getting some superchargers!

    EVs require all of these things.

    OnRoute did apply for a grant to cover all of its locations, but it was not retained.

    There were three or four applications for every one accepted.

    The major problem with their bid was probably that they partnered with an out-of-province network. KSI had an edge due to being in Ontario and being supplied for L2 by GE Canada, which is also heavily Ontario-based.

    :) I think EVs don't require a lot of fuel. As far as parts, service and fluids... I suppose I've bought a couple of jugs of windshield fluid - but nothing else. And I'd never let the clowns in the Canadian tire service department near the car. :)

    Sure they do -- we sorely need more places to "fuel up" (Level 3 chargers) and a national network across the nearly 500 Canadian Tire stores in Canada would go an awful long way in encouraging mainstream EV adoption. IKEA is well on the way to having such facilities at their locations, Canadian Tire has a much bigger footprint. Plus I'd gladly grab a few things for the car or my kitchen while fast charging at a CT.

    I'm not disagreeing, but once EVs are mainstream, I'm sure CT will be in the business of servicing them. Especially for banal things like tires and brakes. Ultimately they will have to prove some capabilities in this department, but creating a national network of chargers would be a great signal to the marketplace that they want to service and support all vehicles, not just conventionally fuelled vehicles.

    McDonald's is a franchise system and they signed up for dozens of fast chargers in the new program, so it's easier done than you claim.

    I've been out of the loop for a while, so this is the first I'm hearing about these chargers. Do we know what type they're supposed to be (Superchargers, CHAdeMO, HPWC, L2, etc)? I see the interactive map lists them as L3. Surely they can't be Superchargers?

    The L3 are s
    The L3 are dual CHAdeMO/CCS. An S85 should get about 225 km/h until tapering kicks in at 76% SOC.

    Hurray! Two L3 chargers, at McDonalds & Tim Hortons, in Thunder Bay, two L3s in Fort Francis, and two L3s in Sualt Ste Marie. Circumnavigating Lake Superior just got much easier (though the Wisconsin part is still tricky). Do we know what payment network these Ontario chargers will be using?

    I'm sure it's going to be over budget and a boondoggle of some sort, but it's good to see the L3 chargers across the Western chunk of the province, making EV cross country/long distance driving manageable. It looks like Tesla met its match in Ontario as far as Canada is concerned. I've done a trip to Kenora in the past, and can see myself doing it again in the future a few more times, so having that there is a bright light.

    Do you mean the Tesla Supercharger in Huntsville or one of these L3 chargers?

    I think you are correct but that is a different thread, the chargers being discussed in this thread are not Tesla supercharges.
