    So, finally, we have liftoff of the Ontario Superchargers on Brookline in Cornwall.
    They were deposited in the corner lot of the Ramada Inn last Tuesday and yesterday, the workers started digging. I stopped by for an hour to chat with them and they said they should be ready in 3 weeks. They will have six stalls. Kingston and Toronto are next they say.
    They are in the Ramada Inn parking lot near the front.
    A few questions though. Why put them in a tired looking Ramada Inn lot instead of across the street where there is a big mall with amenities. Could it be the Ramada was desperate for some sort of payment from Tesla so they can renovate the hotel? Perhaps they feel we will use their restaurant?
    Another safety concern is that when you come down from the 401, you go slightly past the hotel and make a circle at the traffic circle, which is just before the bridge. Unfortunately, you have to immediately cross over a couple of lanes while inside the circle in order to get to the hotel entrance. Very dangerous.

    Anyhow, I cannot wait for them to finish and get the Kingston one going too. That should be their next priority over Toronto.
    Drummondvile has a permit and that should be starting soon. They need them in London, Barrie, Casselman, and St. Sauveur, Qc, for those heading to the Laurentians, north of Montreal.

    Here are a few pictures from Tuesday.
