Vancouver, B.C. – March 28, 2018 – At the Vancouver International Auto Show, Mitsubishi Motor Sales of Canada, Inc. presents to Breakfast Club of Canada a $100,000 cheque representing the company’s annual commitment to the organization which impacts schools across Canada including 52 schools in the Greater Vancouver Area.

“Today, as we unveil the Outlander PHEV to Western Canada, it is fitting that we also take this opportunity to draw attention to the importance of stimulating the young minds that will nurture innovation for a more sustainable future,” said Tony Laframboise, president and CEO, Mitsubishi Motor Sales of Canada. “Together with Mitsubishi Motor dealers across the country, we proudly support the Breakfast Club of Canada.”
