I was a pedestrian at the corner of Government and Johnson streets, in Victoria, BC. Much to my delight, there was a purplish Model S with what looked like a family of four inside, waiting at the light to continue up Government Street. I was so excited that I gave them the international sign for, "Roll down your window", which they did. Then I blurted out to them, "This is the first one I have seen in person, thank-you!", while giving them two thumbs up!
They drove away. The car had Washington State plates.
I have only seen one other Model S in Victoria. It was back a couple of months ago when a similarly coloured Model S with BC plates (I think) turned left as I was waiting in my 1987 Corolla (it's just broken in) to go straight at the corner of Blanshard and Bay, here in Victoria.
I read these forums everyday so it was cool that I actually manifested a Tesla.
