Copy the transportation minister also. I already did both for Ontario.

But... the pressing issue now is what the feds are up to. If they go through with the plan to re-write the LSV definition, it won't matter what the provinces say about whether or not they can be registered, because people would only be able to drive them on private property or in controlled areas. Transport Minister Lawrence Cannon is the guy I'd bug (I did that too).

I'm surprised Quebec hasn't acted to permit the vehicles before the LSV definition changes. Quebec has much higher than average awareness of environmental issues (evidenced by implementing the country's first carbon tax), the ZENN manufacturing plant is in the province, they're generally more wordly and open to new ideas. They also don't have any major Big 3 manufacturing activity, so their politicians should be less influenced by that money (evidenced by the recent announcement of their plan to adopt Cali. emissions regs) - unlike Ontario. So, I say: go Quebec!
