Yes, it's called property taxes.

For better or for worse, my impression of hipsters is generally someone in the younger generation -- typically the Gen Y crowd. And that begs the question -- in Vancouver at least, what percentage of them are property owners?

What's red diesel? My basic understanding is it's commercial diesel and it's dyed red?

They are gas or diesel used for off-road/agricultural/marine application. Hence, no associated taxes. Itís more often called marked fuel.

I'm in. But trying to get one is next to impossible. There is a new Porsche dealership being built in Nanaimo. Maybe that will help.

They are banning NEW gas cars in 2035 which means I'm good til at least 2055. By that time I'll either have dementia or we will be under water. Both of which seem more appealing than a Tesla.

People use to buy gas at pharmacies. They also did not have paved roads back then.

If the sounds come out your speakers is it the same thing?

Yes and tell me about that "fake" manual in EVs, I assume they still got quite a few years to perfect that part of the experience as well.
