I remember watching a video on YouTube about electric cars that were built by a small factory in Canada (I think it was Ontario) but the gov't wouldn't allow the vehicles to be sold at home. Seems the Canadians are sleeping with Exxon if you ask me. Either that or Government Motors, seeing as they are trying to sell the Volt pretty soon.
