Downtown Toronto: Black on All Sides

2005_07_23blackout.gifWhatever you do, don’t say nobody warned you! Between Gerrard Street and Lakeshore Boulevard, and Yonge Street and the Don Valley Parkway, the power will out for at least 4 hours. Beginning at around 10:45 today, the lights went out in Toronto’s downtown core – almost exactly seven months since it last happened. Please excuse our tardy posting schedule today, as Torontoist is obliged to take to the streets and direct traffic once again.
Attention comic book writers: Could Torontoist be the next city superhero? Everytime the people of Toronto are without their lights, we dawn our Hydro tights and cape to save motorists and frozen foods…Blackout Boy to the rescue!
