Get a sneak peek of upcoming Hybrid models not on the market yet including the all-new third generation Prius, the all-new Lexus RX450h and the Lexus HS250h. But don’t just browse – get behind the wheel! Test drives of the new Toyota and Lexus hybrids will be offered all weekend long, so sit back and enjoy the ride.

BRING YOUR E-WASTE FOR DONATION AND RECYCLING!
Time to finally get rid of your e-waste and and save tonnes of nasty toxins from hitting landfills! FIDO will not only be collecting old cell phones, but also food donations for The Vancouver Food Bank. The Electronics Recycling Association will take everything else from computers to cordless phones, PDA’s to iPods. You’ll find a convenient drop-off for both e-waste and food donations at the front entrance to EPIC.
