Highlights From The Canadian International Auto Show Media Day

For the third year in a row, I attended the Canadian International Auto Show media day. Now for those of you who think getting a behind the scenes look at the coolest cars and attending exclusives press conferences is fun…. Well it is.

Come early as there’s a lot to see and do here, and I’ve only scratched the surface in terms of what’s on offer for visitors to see.
