After rigorous safety and operational inspections in Ontario, and a detailed mechanical breakdown back in BC at Matt's Shop, Topsy is ready to take on the roads.

???? In-Depth Inspection:

* Join us as Matt from the shop discusses the comprehensive inspection process. From customizing exhaust systems to stabilizing the battery box, no stone was left unturned.

* The Final Steps: Learn how we secured a VIN number, completed the registration, and got the insurance and license plates – making Topsy a fully legal electric truck!

???? Recognition and Celebration:

* A Historic Moment: We proudly share our invitation to the legislative assembly, marking our recognition as the first OEM manufacturer in BC in 30 years.

* A Tribute to Team Effort: This achievement is a testament to the collaborative spirit of mechanics, truck drivers, and loggers who dared to dream big.

* Community Support: A heartfelt thank you to our fans, supporters, and everyone who played a role in turning this ambitious project into a reality.
