Dear Ms. Cowan,

Thank you for your well written letter regarding the hydro power cut-off on January 15th and January 16th, 2009.

I have discussed improvement / preventative measures with David O’Brian, CEO of Toronto Hydro and yes, I will call for a follow-up meeting to the one held last Thursday in Parkdale.

A number of issues should be discussed at this meeting among them:

  1. Improvements by Hydro to the Bloor / Dufferin automated transformer station.
  2. Improvements to the Emergency response communication system

The meeting date will be March 31st 2009 at 7:15 pm at Casa de Alentejo, located at 1130 Dupont Street.

Please accept my warmest personal regards.

Tony Ruprecht, M.P.P.
