Electric car film, showing in Courtenay, tackles myths

Climbing gas prices and environmental concerns are encouraging people to consider making the shift to various electric modes of transportation. World Community will screen the film What is the Electric Car? (75 min.) at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 14 at the Stan Hagen Theatre, North Island College, Courtenay.

This entertaining and educational film looks at some of the myths people have about electric cars (speed, range, etc.) and gives thought-provoking information to consider. Vendors, drivers, and enthusiasts share their views.

With thousands of dollars currently available as incentives for purchasing electric cars, some people who watch this film may soon end up driving their own electric vehicle. Resource people will be available to answer questions after the film. Admission is by donation.

Watch the film trailer at www.worldcommunity.ca FMI: 250 337-5412

For even more information, attend the Move 2 Electric event on Saturday, May 18 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Comox Valley Sports Centre parking lot. Learn about electric cars, bikes and scooters, and talk to owners and experts. Test drive an electric car or e-bike, and find out about incentives for purchasing electric vehicles. Admission to the event is free.
