Something we do better than Canadians
: Reuters says Toronto was leaderless in the crisis:
As Canada’s biggest city struggled back to life on Friday following a massive power outage that hit large areas of North America, Toronto residents were looking around for their civic leaders.
There was a noticeable lack of leadership to guide Toronto, the country’s financial hub, as subways ground to a halt, the city was pitched into darkness and thousands were milling about downtown streets late into the night.
In contrast to New York City and Ottawa, where mayors quickly appeared at press conferences to calm residents and provided regular updates, Toronto Mayor Mel Lastman was noticeably absent.
