Letter: from BC Hydro regarding recently cancelled power outage

Wednesday, October 26 2016

Dear Editor:

As the local line manager, I don’t often write letters apologizing for keeping the lights on, but I would like to say sorry for the confusion about the recently cancelled planned outage. The final repairs to our lines that were damaged by the barge, involves putting bright orange navigation marker balls on them.  We need to coordinate materials and helicopter availability as well hope for suitable weather (i.e. not a storm or windy). Currently, we are expecting to finish the repairs in November. When we have a firm date, we will certainly make sure the community is well aware. Again sorry for the confusing dates and thank you for your patience.

Greg Mullin, Line Manager, Nanaimo
