    Our Model S has a bit of Canada in it...

    Just watching the National Geographic special on the Tesla Model S and it was interesting to hear that Gilbert Passin from Toyota Canada to head up manufacturing:

    Yes I saw that too.
    Plus Elon's mother is Canadian, he lived here for quite a while and spent a few years at Queen's at university!

    I met a few Canadian employees at the October event last year. One was working at the automation of the plant with Mr. Passin, originally working at Ford in Ontario, if I recall correctly.
    Also met a fellow Québécois working on the motor, very proud after the introduction of the Performance version earlier that night. He had worked in F1 teams before. I just can`t remember his name.
