Several lawmakers in the North Country, fresh off the second forum of the New Hampshire-Canadian Trade Council, are working on increasing cross-border businesses between the Granite State and Quebec.

Among them is state Rep. Linda Massimilla, D-Littleton, who said one idea discussed at the council’s second economic business forum Oct. 8 at the Delta Hotel in Sherbrooke Quebec - the first was in 2018 at the Mountain View Grand in Whitefield - was an electric vehicle corridor with related infrastructure and charging stations from Quebec through New Hampshire.
