Guest Speaker:  Tim Burrows, Electric Vehicle Society

Tim has owned and driven battery-electric cars for the past 10 years and has logged over 300,000 km without the need for gasoline or diesel fuel.  He now enjoys sharing his EV experience with others and breaks down many myths and misconceptions about EV ownership.

Join Tim as he explains why we've reached a 'tipping point' where electric cars are replacing those powered by gasoline. He'll also touch on the state of self driving technology and what autonomous cars could mean for the future.

Tim is a board member of the Electric Vehicle Society, a non-profit organization which works to promote the understanding and adoption of electric mobility in Canada.  In his role there, he produces a monthly webinar called "Canada Talks Electric Cars".
