    Last year, you made a similar comment about Canadian Superchargers and ended all debate by saying you wouldn't be commenting further.
    However, since you need to bring it up again, "doubling" of Superchargers doesn't mean much when you start out with so few. Quebec only had four seven months ago.

    I don't recall the post that your talking about. Just trying to provide some perspective here.

    Plus ev does have a point that we're obviously a little spoiled (certainly here in the Toronto area) when we have added, in the last 6 months:

    20 in barrie
    20 in concord
    20 in Markham
    20 in pickering
    20 in etobicoke
    16 in Cambridge
    20 in downtown Toronto

    ...but we're all moaning that the Belleville Brockville Hamilton London etc aren't starting fast enough :)

    If they do Brockville as well, the 401 corridor will be amazingly covered.

    North York must happen soon if there is to be any space at Laurence - good luck finding space to get to the shop

    Out to Woodstock is pretty good coverage, assuming that Meadowvale/Miss get built, but beyond that it gets very sparse.

    Yes, but so does the province. :)

    They could put something at London, but between London and Comber, ON the 401, I can't find anywhere you'd want to put one. If you go off the 401, your choices don't improve much. Ridgetown, Rodney, West Lorne, Dutton; none of them appear to have the amenities that we'd expect with a super charger and only one of them appears to have a Tim Hortons!

    I think they should have one at the Wellington Rd exit in London, and then one down half way between London and Comber - but as you mentioned there aren't a ton of amenities. But not all SCs will have a Tim Hortons nearby - some of the ones being built between Sudbury and Winnipeg certainly won't have fast food places nearby.

    Espanola, Blind River and the Sault all have Tim's, so panic averted. You are correct about most of the places after that but hey, when I want to visit Winnipeg there's usually a train involved. :)

    Do we have any spies in St. Catharines? I'd be curious to know if construction has started out there yet.

    Can’t we put in the Canadian Section? Maybe it is Off Topic, but most importantly, it’s CANADIAN.

    No. We have to apply the rules consistently.

    Other than Mississauga (which is still seemingly nowhere in sight) what are the other most anticipated new supercharger locations that people are looking out for?

    Personally I kind of don't need anymore with the thorough build out that just happened in the past 8 months. Pickering Vaughan Markham etobicoke Hamilton and Cambridge mean I'm pretty much covered no matter what direction I set off in for a 500 km round trip.
