Ice Storm Review Consultation

As I mentioned in my ice storm recap, there was significant room for improvement in the city and Toronto Hydro’s response to the December ice storm.

At January’s City Council meeting, I voted for a full and comprehensive review of that response, including actions to improve the city’s response to extreme weather events in the future. Toronto Hydro also announced it assembled an Independent Review Panel to evaluate its storm response. Both reviews are well underway.

The city is hosting public town hall meetings on behalf of Toronto Hydro’s Independent Review Panel to gather feedback on Toronto Hydro’s service during the storm.

The North York town hall is scheduled for Thursday March 6, 7 p.m. at the North York Civic Centre.

Those attending can provide a three-minute comment to the panel on how Toronto Hydro can improve its response to extreme weather events.

If you are unable to attend in person, you can also provide feedback to the panel via email at
