In December last year, Volkswagen was heavily fined for importing around 128,000 cars into Canada which were above the emissions level. The company said they were guilty after it had been charged sixty times on separate occasions for providing the Canadian Environmental Protection Act misleading information.
On Wednesday last week, Canadian prosecutors proposed a fine of $196.5 million (CAD) after Volkswagen pleaded guilty to diesel emissions violations.
This is all following the emissions scandals Volkswagen got involved in back in 2015 and so far the company has had to pay out €30 billion in fines.
