WWF Canada's Goal of 600,000 EVs by 2020

WWF-Canada has launched an initiative designed to encourage the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs). Their campaign is called Transportation rEVolution, this program aimed at reducing Canada’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from transportation by encouraging the use of electric vehicles (EVs). To achieve this objective, WWF aims to have 600,000 electric vehicles in Canada by 2020.

According to a recent Environics study commissioned by WWF-Canada, almost three quarters (73 percent) of Canadians support government actions to promote electric cars, however, many do not understand the environmental value of driving EVs.

According to the WWF's research only 26 percent of Canadians strongly agree that vehicle emissions in Canada are a major source of climate change. A total of 36 percent of Canadians are unsure about the impact of an EV on reducing GHG emissions.

The WWF program is designed to help address this problem by informing Canadians about the environmental value of EVs.

That seems like a pretty low number of people thinking that vehicle emissions are causing a lot of trouble for the environment. I guess there should be a greater amount of information dissemination for canada's populace about this problem.
