    Thanks for checking in.

    That's sad to hear. I make the commute from Montreal to Toronto quite often, and this charger is very important for my commute.

    There's enough activity starting to go on (Maritimes, Northern Ontario) that I assume this will have to happen soon??

    Pretty sure on location. Do you any other place in Brockville that would be big enough for Superchargers?

    Has anyone checked the location lately? I'll be passing through this weekend and can check unless someone has done that recently.

    Checked out the area this afternoon. Nothing happening. Trip reinforced that this one will be a great addition.

    Ok thanks. Was thinking of checking on the way back to Mtl but I guess I won’t bother.

    I wrote to customersupport at tesla dot com regarding this.

    Here are the things I mentioned to them.
    1. Cornwall is out of the way(Minimum half an hour of wasted time) ... 5 KM on inner roads to get to the charger.
    2. Kingston has too few chargers.
    3. Belleville is the only viable stop right now, with lots of chargers, but it is too far from Montreal for the car to get there especially in Winter when the range drops.

    Brockville is a perfect place to have a 20 stall supercharger station for now to enable smooth Montreal to Toronto commuting, especially in Winters when the range drops dramatically.

    They said they are looking into building it. If everybody writes to them at the email I mentioned above, we have a chance of being herd.

    Definitely agree with this. Cornwall is too far off the road and Kingston is too small and too crowded.

    I definitely agree that Kingston has too few chargers. It is one of the most ideally located superchargers we have facilitating travel between Montreal and Toronto as well as Ottawa to Toronto. Brockville would help, but what would really help would be upgrading the Kingston site.

    I was there yesterday coming from Ottawa. The chargers were full and cars were waiting. Charging was slow (since any new vehicles showing up got the slower rate. I ended out charging just enough to get to Belleville.

    Back in the day, it was originally supposed to have eight stalls in a spot a few hundred meters away. However, for reasons too long to rehash here, the project was delayed, reduced in size, and moved. Though it might seem like a big difference, having eight instead of six stalls would be a great help.

    20 stalls in Brockville and the 20 we already have in Belleville should greatly reduce the demand on Kingston.

    Brockville might help. The real issue is that Kingston is very well placed and very convenient for travel between Tononto -Montreal and Toronto - Ottawa. People will continue to go there first. Belleville is almost entirely empty even while Kingston is overflowing.

    I agree and this is why we need Kingston increased to 20 chargers or a second SC in Kingston - just like Barrie. But I don't think it is fair to say that Belleville is empty. I was there on Sunday afternoon and there were at least 6 vehicles there - a nice mix of 3s, Ss and Xs. Same with Friday afternoon on my east.
