Environment and climate change minister Steven Guilbeault wants to force auto dealers to sell a certain number of electric vehicles.

3% of new cars registered are electric, which is more than ever before. But the Trudeau government believes by mandating quotas for auto dealers, 100% of new cars will be electric by 2035.

Is there really a need for the government to intervene? Anthony Furey discusses.


We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
