The annual Canadian Teddy awards are out and the Ontario government won the prize for electric vehicle tax payer waste with regards to the $14,000 rebate. It is their twisted conviction that anyone who can afford a $140,000 Tesla doesn't need a rebate. Of course they miss the point here that the rebate isn't designed to help the wealthy but its purpose is to educate the public about sustainable options with EV cars. The fact that Teslas are expensive is besides the point. The whole reason is to persuade buyers into adopting electric over gas cars and to help save the planet. Without the incentives, people would just continue to buy polutting fossil fuel cars. The Canadian Revenue agency also won an award for tax payer waste as they paid an employee, apparently, a half million dollars for doing virtually nothing.
