Clean Fuel Regulations (CFR) Will Cost Every Working Canadian An Extra $1,277 Per Year! The federal government are set to bring in new Clean Fuel Regulations (CFR) on Canada Day (July 1) next year that are supposed to “reduce carbon emissions” – but in fact do the exact opposite according to a published report by LFX Associates of Toronto. According to the research commissioned by the advocacy group Canadians for Affordable Energy, the tax-grab will cost the average employed Canadian more than $1,277 a year – about $25 a week or $50 per week for a two-income family.
Dearborn, Mich., Oct. 17, 2019 – Ford is giving future all-electric vehicle customers the confidence to enjoy a hassle-free electric lifestyle by providing access to more electric vehicle public charging stations in North America than any other automaker.

It’s not a matter of you MIGHT get one – you WILL be getting one! At some point in the very near-future the EV will be cheaper to purchase/lease than a regular ICE (Internal Combustible Engine) vehicle WITHOUT government incentives. If you want to put off the inevitable as long as possible, it’ll probably be around 2024-2025 – that’s only 6 years from now! Take the time to watch this brief video and you’ll understand that it’s a lot closer than you think before we’re all driving electric.
I’ve loved the look of the present generation Fusion sever since I laid eyes on it – when it’s approaching from the opposite direction it looks a lot like an Aston Martin from the front. However, for 2017 Ford has seen fit to re-style the Fusion to make it look more like a Ford. In addition to the new grill and front fascia it also gets LED headlights, tail lights and fog lights, along a new rear fascia and spiffy redesigned 17-inch wheels. Inside, there is now a rotary-style gear selector – very Jaguaresque, a longer armrest and improved access to the open storage area in the lower dashboard.
Welcome to the Twitter Version… This is NOT a road test of each vehicle, it’s just an overview of how-they-work in relation to each other – on a day-to-day basis. Each vehicle will have its own road test in a separate article. Squirrel!!! Just kidding let’s go….

Ford brought the Model T to the masses – Tesla plans to do the same…with the Model 3 Tesla. What’s the first thing you think of when you read or hear that word? For me, it was a very expensive electric car that the Hollywood gang loved to be seen-in – so they could tell us how to live our life and save the environment from their ivory tower. For that reason alone, I completely ignored the car and everything about it. But I was wrong – so very wrong. What changed my mind?
At this year’s Canadian International Auto Show (CIAS) the stand-out theme would have to be Electric Vehicles (EVs) – at least that’s where most of the manufacturers seem to be spending their time, energy and design money. And hey, there’s nothing wrong with electric vehicles – don’t get me wrong – but the fact that they’re being touted as an urban commuter – I’m not so sure about that.
February 10, 2016 – Ontario is putting its new Climate Change Strategy into action by introducing a new, modernized Electric Vehicle Incentive Program that will help reduce greenhouse gas pollution and make it easier for Ontarian’s to switch to an electric vehicle (EV).
