Drew Dilkens, the mayor of Windsor, Ontario, believes that EVs are the future and wants to see charging points included in the Ontario Building Code.

According to a report by Windsor's Am800 radio, Dilkens has asked Windsor city staff to report on how the city should prepare for more EV adoption.

He believes that EV charging points should at least be required to be roughed-in in new residential and commercial construction.

AM800 reported Dilkens saying:  "You're building a condo building and you have parking underneath, how do you make sure that the systems are built to be able to accommodate the electrification of a fleet? How do we make sure that the systems are in place to be able to accommodate that type of thing that's happening around the world?"
