Now, both conferences are going strong just a few weeks apart, with this year’s Toronto event running on October 6 and 7 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre."

I interviewed a longtime volunteer and crafted a story in order to write this sponsored content article for CORP - AGENCY's hype-building campaign.

"In October, Jon’s fellow enthusiasts at the Victoria EV Association hosted a launch party where he officially dipped his tires in the Pacific Ocean. The next day, Jon and his mom, Diane, set out on their first cross-Canada road trip in an electric pickup truck. They took the Swartz Bay Ferry to Tsawwassen on the BC mainland, and they were on their way across Canada."

By staying connected to the community of early electric vehicle adopters, I caught this story as it was happening. I interviewed Jon and Diane to write about their cross-Canada EV road trip experience.
