Perhaps they could be talked into extending it to conversions, too? If it can I might be able to take advantage of that - I might be living in Ontario in a few years :P
I hope so, but I sort of doubt it.

So far, the Ontario government hasn't really been all that supportive of EVs. It was only this past month or so that electric bikes were permanently legal in the province.

The Ontario government has essentially banned the Low-Speed Electric Vehicle category by instituting random new safety requirements no product currently meets, even Ontario's own ZENN.

However, the green plates that were also announced should apply to all "E" fueled vehicles in the province.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they aren't.
