Reporting from Canadian psyOp central: Power out at 9 and back by 11? Are you kidding me? Look at this vague reporting that wasn’t even proofread for typos:
A power outage caused by a “transmission issue” affected “tens of thousands” of residences and businesses in mid-town Toronto and the city’s west end Tuesday night.
Those affected spent nearly three hours in the dark before power was restored shortly before 11 p.m., according to HydroOne, the utility firm that serves areas outside Toronto.
HydroOne spokeswoman Marylena Stea said the firm supplies power to Toronto Hydro, and had a “transmission issue” with one of its facilities.

Neither the cause of the issue or specific number of utility customers affected is immediately clear. Stea said HydroOne is investigating.
Torontonians told the Star power went out before 9 p.m., with Toronto Hydro at one point suggesting the affected area ranged north of Dupont to Lawrence and west from Yonge St. all the way to edge of Mississauga.a
