    I would have to say Kingston as it is strategically located half way between our country's two largest cities.
    It was a real shame and total inconvenience that it took so long to get it going.
    I would also like to add, and maybe I'm being bold by saying it, but I think it is also one of the world's most important Supercharging locations, in countries with Teslas, because it connects two major cities.
    Where else can you think of where it took so long to place a SC of this magnitude anywhere?
    My vote is for the Kingston, Ontario location.
    Your thoughts?

    I would agree!

    Kingston! It's in the same league as Harris Ranch between San Francisco and Los Angeles.

    The non-existent ones on the Trans-Canada that link the country from coast to coast.

    I'd say Port Huron. Important for people who go back and forth to central/northern Michigan.

    I agree with Kingston, and put Woodstock as a close second as key to the 401/I-75 link between Toronto and Michigan. I've been doing a lot of work north of Detroit lately and would really love to see a SuperCharger in Port Huron which makes the 402 route feasible without having to range charge in Woodstock. Re-routing via Comber adds at least 1 hour to the trip.

    Kingston for sure. Makes Toronto trip from Ottawa feasible rather than a chore.

    Kingston +1

    Edit: But I find it strange that there are only six stalls there. I sincerely hope they add some more stalls for when Model 3 comes out. I was there last weekend and there were five cars...

    The most important one to me is Hope BC. It's halfway between my home and my cabin, and a long way from the center of the universe which suits me just fine! ;)

    I don't know if you're serious but Port Huron isn't in Canada and I have to think there are very few Tesla owners going to those parts of Mich vs the Toronto - Montreal route.

    Kingston is easily the correct response.
    It is 540km between Montreal and Toronto (Canada's two largest urban areas) and Kingston is roughly half way.
    It is 450km between Ottawa and Toronto (Ottawa-Gatineau is Canada's fourth largest urban area) and Kingston is roughly half way.

    While Kingston is certainly the "correct" current response, I think that a 4 or 6 stall SC is really needed in the Ottawa area to allow for driving around Ottawa and the Gatineau, without having to waste hours at an Ottawa destination charger, as the Kingston-Ottawa return distance is too great, esp. in winter.

    Agree especially for tourist traffic to Ottawa.

    It definitely will be nice when the Ottawa supercharger is added this year (still on Tesla 2016 list) but without the Kingston one the Ottawa Toronto trip would be very difficult.

    As per Tesla:
    Supercharger | Tesla Motors Canada

    If you have no charging options at your residence, a CHAdeMO adaptor can be purchased from Tesla and you can charge up at this DC fast charging location near you:
