    I've been an Edmonton resident for most of my life, and have recently made the switch from gas to EV. Jasper has been my most-frequently visited vacation spot in both summer and winter for many decades. Having a supercharger in Jasper is absolutely critical for Tesla and EV owners. A quick glance at the supercharger network in Canada reveals that Jasper is a dead-zone, with only a handful of trickle-charge/destination options available. The trek from Edmonton to Jasper is roughly 360km, which will use up nearly all of the available range for most EV's - especially in winter! Banff (Canmore), Calgary, and even Red Deer already have superchargers for range anxiety free road trips. Tesla owners need a place to quickly recharge in Jasper to continue their trek without having to risk being stranded, or waiting several hours for their vehicles to recharge.
