It took nearly eight hours for Toronto Hydro and city crews to restore power to the downtown core after an outage that affected 19,000 customers.
By midafternoon, most businesses had called it a day and the trendy neighbourhood was cast in darkness. One hotel was able to offer customers “sandwiches or a light meal,” but was otherwise forced to send customers to the competition.
