Stay Home Today (Friday, August 15)

Ontario is still in a state of emergency due to the power outage that affected this province and six American states at 4:11 pm yesterday. Today, Toronto’s subway is still offline and Ernie Eves is asking all non-essential workers to stay home and conserve power and water. Only half of the affected areas have seen power restored, and these areas could still suffer from rotating blackouts as work continues to get the other half restored.

Still, Torontonians really acquitted themselves well yesterday when the power went out. The stalled subway was evacuated within an hour and people were patient and took their time getting home. Everybody should continue to be patient throughout today and this weekend as power disruptions are likely to continue.
