IN HIS OWN WORDS:
“If Canada is to continue to succeed as a relevant auto jurisdiction, it must be a global leader in the connected, automated, shared and electric mobility ecosystem. This requires the development and deployment of both infrastructure and mobility technology. A vehicle is no longer just an analog machine but, rather, a technological digital platform.”
