The City of Toronto is still investigating after a power outage left a large portion of the downtown core without electricity. This included office buildings, a major mall, and a university campus. According to Hydro One, the outage was caused after a barge with a crane came into contact with overhead power lines at the city’s waterfront.
The City of Toronto said the power outage may have been caused by a subcontractor to the main contractors for the Ashbridges Bay Treatment Plant project. The cityu has requested reports from the main contractor.
This is to “understand what happened and what needs to be done to ensure this does not happen again.” The outage hit Toronto around 12:30 p.m. and impacted 10,000 customers. Power was restored at 8 p.m. last night.
