If these buses can survive winter in AB, this is nothing but win-win for all.

Surviving a winter in Alberta is just the tip of the iceberg. St. Albert's already have, and Edmonton did winter testing successfully.

Some interesting background/additional information in this news article:

Calgary chose to procure shuttle vehicles because other jurisdictions in Canada, including Toronto, have tested regular electric buses. Alm said Calgary's shuttle routes are some of the system's longest, which will really put the electric vehicles' battery life to the test. 

[…] Next on the agenda before the buses arrive is to decide what routes these buses will test, and to secure and install charging stations at bus barns.
