Saturday evening, January 30th, 2016, over three hundred and twenty people celebrated the 5th anniversary of the Manitoba Electric Vehicle Association (MEVA), at The Met, the newly refurbished Metropolitan Theatre, in downtown Winnipeg. (Before the scheduled event, dozens of us arrived early, to enjoy The Allen Restaurant at The MET. The food was delicious and staff were great!)
The members of MEVA and our many guests are very grateful to the Canadian Shield Foundation and MTS for generously helping to make this event possible.
The evening started with a special address by one of Manitoba’s foremost advocates of electric vehicles. He’s a long-time EV owner, and staunch MEVA supporter,
The Right Honourable Edward Richard Schreyer
Governor General of Canada (retired)
