METRO Vancouver has received funding to plan for 75 to 150 electric vehicle charging stations. That's in addition to the charging stations that have already been planned by North Shore municipalities. As electric vehicle technology improves and concerns about the environment mount, some think it is time Vancouver builds a charging network. Our unscientific street survey suggests many are looking for a transportation alternative to the infernal combustion engine. Find us on Facebook or Twitter and tell us what you think.
