Power & the peo­ple

The Coast - - THIS WEEK -

Many thanks to the Que­bec Hy­dro crews for their all im­por­tant help in restor­ing power to those who lost elec­tric­ity in Halifax and across the prov­ince, from our re­cent “win­ter hur­ri­cane.” At­tached pic shows them at a Tims re­fu­elling, Ro­bie and Young Streets, prior to head­ing back to la Belle Prov­ince.

Don’t be­lieve the Nova Sco­tia Power Out­age re­ports, they badly un­der-re­port out­ages. I lost power at about 7pm on Thurs­day, Jan 4 due to the storm. All Lynn Drive, Fen­wick Street, Cle­ment Street and part of Hast­ings Drive in Dartmouth were with­out power. Over 60 houses, and on the out­age site they re­ported less than five. This num­ber did not change for the du­ra­tion of the out­age. I checked it ev­ery hour from my brother’s house and the num­ber never changed.

Rob, Dartmouth
