Government encouraging electric cars

NB Power is partnering with Ottawa to install ten fast-charging stations for electric cars along the Trans-Canada Highway in the province.

Fisheries and Oceans Minister Dominic Leblanc announced the program saying it’ll help address range anxiety by electric car owners. Leblanc says the government hopes, by spending $335,000 to install the stations, it’ll encourage more people to buy electrics. NB power estimates there are only about a hundred of them in the province now.
