Class Action 2010 raised funds to purchase an electric utility vehicle for use on campus. The Office of Sustainability dug deep into current research about the most cost-effective models on the market and eventually decided to purchase the John Deere Electric Gator. They feel this lean, green machine best demonstrates the benefits of using fossil-fuel-free vehicles at the University – namely no noise and zero emissions.
A breath of fresh air
Class Actioners have seen how the E-Gator has had an immediate impact around campus, replacing traditional trucks that are loud and release hyrdocarbon pollutants into the atmosphere. The University uses the state-of-the-art vehicle for general grounds keeping duties, campus maintenance, recycling and garbage collection, and the delivery of organic waste to our composter. As a result, future McGill students, and in fact everyone in downtown Montreal, will breathe a little easier.
