Town of Caledon power outages almost ended; only a few pockets remain

The Town of Caledon continues to experience the effects of the ice storm. Today crews are tackling a handful of smaller incidents across Caledon affecting a few dozen customers. All outages are expected to be restored today, subject to any change in weather conditions or other unplanned outages.

“We’re seeing the end of the outages, hopefully today,” said Mayor Marolyn Morrison. “What a huge relief this is for the citizens of Caledon, who have shown remarkable patience and goodwill during these trying times. And let me pay special tribute to the Town of Caledon Public Works crews, Fire and Emergency Services, Parks and Recreation and all the other staff for their tremendous hard work.”
