If Elected, Québec Solidaire Promises to Ban Sales of Gasoline-Based Cars

Hybrid and electric automobiles are certainly the future.  At least that is what is being reported by Journal de Montréal regarding a statement made to Radio-Canada by Manon Massé and Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois, the two co-spokespeople leading Québec Solidaire (QS), a party making noise this upcoming provincial election.

From the party that brought you the free dental care platform, the QS is now promising to ban gas-based car sales by the year 2030.

According to the party’s plan, they may want the end of gasoline-based car sales by 2030, and in the next ten years following, they want to maintain sales of exclusively electric based vehicles, leaving even hybrid alone.  Ultimately, by 2050, they want to ban sales of all combustion-based automobiles in the entire province.

The announcement was meant to draw on the influences stemming from other nations that are currently en route to ban sales on gasoline-based vehicles, such as Norway by 2030, and then 2040 when both France and the United Kingdom are expected to have changed policy regarding these sales.

If QS really wants change, they are going to have to be able to produce a whole lot of cash to set up the infrastructure required to substantiate a world without gas-based cars.  We also need an idea about the costs behind all of these plans will be.

More to come as this story develops, only here at The Post Millennial.
