I wrote this article a long time ago. I sent it to Prime Minister Harper’s email and I had four phone calls about it. That is proof enough that they read their email and will respond to it.
All you have to do is ask, and they might make it happen too. Today I even got campaign literature from one political party. Who? The Conservatives. Not Liberals? Nope. Building Hydrogen Fuel- cell Stations would require cooperation between governments and big business. In Ontario it would cost Ten Billion Dollars, including an upgrade of the electrical grid system. Imagine the United States cutting one trillion in military spending to make building Hyrdrogen Fuel Stations an infrastructure program? Sounds crazy. This sounds doable. I will give you the 30 second commercial on the article Canadian politicians are reading and thinking about too.
Here it goes. In 2012, word on the street a lot of young people in their teens and 20’s are buying electric bikes. Why? It requires no car license fiasco, or insurance, all one has to do is walk into a store, buy it, and leave.
My proposal is very simple. Anyone who operates an electric bike in Canada has to buy a six month $500.00 dollar license. If they wish to drive all year round, they have to buy a renewal pass. All this would fund, not subways, but the construction of Hydrogen Fuel-cell Stations all over Toronto, but in every major city in Canada where there is a high density of population.
