    If Tesla is only waiting on paperwork, I sure hope they bring the first cars to the Toronto store for prep ahead of time; go ahead and put my winter tires on! I hope our Ontario members can stalk the store for us and let us know if any shiny red cars arrive!

    I can tell you that Toronto service is indeed putting winter tires on for my car. I'm not sure if they are doing all of the Canadian cars or whether that would be managed on a province-by-province basis.

    In terms of keeping an eye on the store I have a client that happens to be in the area of the Toronto service centre. I've made it a point to drive by on my way home when I'm on-site with the client (most days of the week). If they happen to get a shipment in and I can see it from the street you can bet I'll update the group.

    I have talked to the Toronto Service Centre and they have my snow tires there waiting for installation...

    I also work in the area... I can also drive by periodically.

    I checked with my contact at Tesla and CurrieG should not have got that notification.
    It was sent in error.

    Got a phone call from TELSA about my email inquiry on possible delivery locations.
    Interestingly he indicated that all Model S deliveries must flow through the Toronto location. (the only Canadian location) due to CND import regulations. IIUHC
    Cars would be shipped across Canada from there.
    ( .. guess Toronto really is the center of the CND universe )

    I'm not sure that there is any cad import regulations that require the cars transiting through the Toronto store. When I ordered my roadster from tesla Canada in Toronto the car shipped from California to my door via truck and never went near Toronto.

    It didn't make a lot of sense to me either.... shipping back and forth across the continent.. but I didn't think there was any point in questioning further.
    His follow up email indicated he was not a Delivery Specialist although he did say there are Canadian cars in transit to the Toronto store. Would be nice if correct.

    I was told the plan was to distribute cars for Western Canada from Seattle. Of course that might have changed.

    That does not ring true, as others have said. My Roadster and all other BC Roadsters were trucked directly here from Menlo Park, and exported/imported at the Pacific Crossing from WA state.

    Perhaps they were indicating this due to Toronto being the only open and functioning service centre for staging, but I happen to know that is soon to change. I know the street address and have seen photos today of the Vancouver service centre under urgent renovation, Tesla Red already on some walls.

    I also asked directly how confident they were that BC Model S's would qualify for the $5k rebate, which requires a functioning physical "dealer" presence in the province, prior to delivery. The answer was "very confident."
