    It just appeared at Supercharge.Info

    The real question is how it was discovered...

    We need pictures!

    From the pics it looks like three big identical crates which must be the superchargers. So are we talking 6 stalls? Did we know this already? :)

    We knew this general location.... BTW.. this is the exact link to the Ramada Inn http://www.ramada.com/hotels/ontario/cornwall/ramada-hotel-and-conference-centre/hotel-overview . Its 3KMS off the 401 which is pretty convinent and across from a Tim Hortons. That's really all we need. Everything else is superfluous. Steph how close are you to this location? Will you be able to check up on it from time to time to report progress? Great photos!! Nice shot of your plate! I need to start calculating driving distances between NYC to Peterborough... with Albany and this we might be able to make it... ;)

    If Drummondville is showing as under construction, and we have the above pictures of Cornwall, I would love to ask the crew working in Cornwall if they are headed anywhere after they complete this site.

    Yes. Very curious about the ~Cobourg location.. The Cornwall SC puts me 2 hours longer than my typical drive with the ICE Vehicle... A Cobourg one will help out. Syracuse as well...

    It's a bit of a drive, but I'd head down for sure for opening (122 km) Kanata, Ottawa, ON to Ramada Cornwall - Google Maps

    It looks like Steph will have better ongoing recon.

    wow..

    Being Canadian, I read this as you being 350 meters away... I thought we had real-time scouting in the bag ! :smile:

    - - - Updated - - -

    I still see Drummondville as being in the permit phase.

    I live in Rockland, Ontario - I'm about 85 km away - I'll do the best that I can to keep everyone in the loop, with regular visits and pictures !

    Doh.. not 350 metres?.. I thought that was crazy close.. hence the 'wow!' foiled.

    Wow. I read the article - it is actually quite good (with the exception of the poorly phrased "After a 30-minute charge, Model S owners can travel an estimated 170 miles (at 85 kilowatts-hours)."). But the reader comments on the article are beyond ignorant. And commenting is now closed.

    The first comment starts with "
    This assumes that any Tesla reaching Cornwall will not be on fire when it gets here".

    Really, where does such vitriol originate?
