I found a good read over at The Globe and Mail, an article talking about why we Canadians can’t or won’t get all of the cool toys from Europe.
My favourite quote which was contributed to Thomas Tetzlaf of VW Canada spoke of car enthusiasts:
“Many of them call us immediately upon return from summer vacation in Europe … and ask us why we can’t the get the ‘blank’ … or this engine in North America.”
Hopefully CETA will get ratified in the next two years and that will bring with it the acceptance of European Safety Standards. I already have a friend willing to share a container to ship an Amarok for me and a Scirocco for him.
