    Not sure if this has been posted yet but I haven’t seen construction location or permit information on supercharge.info so I thought I would post.

    No power yet but looks like they are ready to be activated any time now.

    True, but you didn’t assume that I was adding it as you were posting. Well, you did provide me the coordinates so you did spare me one task! Added.

    Now there is just Upsala to find, which shouldn’t be too hard, to know the complete Trans-Canada Supercharger buildout!

    That's great. Thunder Bay, ON was in the biggest gap between known TCH sites, Ignace, ON and Nipigon, ON.

    First post here... Gotta love the chemtrails in the backround of the photos o_O

    Just saw a bunch today here on the west coast getting a coffee at a golf course; such a sad sight.

    Congrats to Tesla for completing the final link of the #1

    Huh, totally figured this would be north of the Shabaqua bypass, not south of it - I guess Teslas get to take the original Trans-Canada route! (Don't forget to turn right on Arthur or you'll end up at the US border)

    The chemical is Dihydrogen Monoxide, formula H2O, aka water vapor. Described in more detail here. Nothing there that makes me sad.

    In fact, that's exactly what I assumed when I saw you had liked the post. But I figured you might not have had the GPS coordinates yet, so I called you to make sure you saw.

    Looks like Elon‘s promise of having the TransCanada finished this year may be very close to becoming reality. That’s one deadline I’m happy to see him keep

    Fantastic. That popped out of nowhere! Look forward to driving the TCH from Ontario to Vancouver next summer.

    Thunder Bay, ON

    Along National Highways: TCH/ON-17, ON-61
    Along Provincial Highways (<=8km): ON-11**

    TCH/ON-17

    From: Ignace, ON - 241.8 km
    To: Nipigon, ON - 114.1 km
    Diversion: 18.5 km/1.4km*
    From: Dryden, ON (Construction) - 345.2 km
    To: Terrace Bay, ON (Construction) - 222.3 km

    ON-11
    From: Nipigon, ON (Construction) - 114.1 km
    To: End (Rainy River, ON) - 434.7 km
    From: North Bay, ON (Construction) (TCH/ON-17***) - 1133.1 km

    ON-61
    To: Duluth, MN (ON-61/MN-61) - 302km

    To: Pembina, ND (Permit) (ON-11, MN-72, MN-11, MN-CR7, US-59, MN-175, US-75, MN-171/ND-59) - 667.9km
    To: Sudbury, ON (TCH/ON-17)

    Now that we know the Thunder Bay, ON location, just one location in the area of Upsala, ON is needed to have the locations all along the TCH to Truro, NS. The largest gaps remaining would be Whitewood, SK to Brandon, MB at 189.3km and Levis, QC to Riviere-du-Loup, QC at 190.7km. (Assuming the expected Renfrew, ON location will be built).

    * The location is a 1.4km diversion from TCH/ON-17 and ON-11. But, the fastest route takes ON-102 to bypass Thunder Bay.

    ** Assuming I've read it right, ON-11 is concurrent with ON-17, but it's ON-17 that counts as being part of the National Highway System there.

    *** Can't map the long ON-11 route right now using Supercharge.info/Mapbox because the underlying OSM data had a tiny section north of North Bay marked as 1-way Southbound. I've changed it, but apparently it takes 1 or 2 days to propagate.

    Correct - it's referred to as Highway 11/17 in the area (11 and 17 merge just before Nipigon, and split again just after Thunder Bay)

    There are other forums where they discuss chemtrails :)

    But you know that those forums are targeted by the Government Agents to spread their denials and propaganda to hide the Truth!

    The edit north of North Bay, ON finally made it to Mapbox.

    ON-11

    From: Nipigon, ON - 113 km
    To: End (MN-72 Rainy River, ON) - 434.7 km
    Diversion: 17.5 km/1.4km*
    From: North Bay, ON - 1104.4 km
