Scott Sharabura, Vice President, Electric Vehicle Charging, Parkland Corporation
“I was very much an oil and gas guy through and through and I think like a lot of people who come from that background, I viewed electric vehicles and zero-emission transportation with a fair bit of skepticism, not because I was opposed to it, but just because there were so many promises that people had made for so long, and there were targets that were set that were pushed out and pushed out again, and pushed out again. It just felt like the idea that was never going to arrive, as they say, the technology of the future. And it will always be the technology of the future and it’s where it started a change for me.”
