Ontario Premier Kathleeen, Wynne, Toronto May Rob Ford and the utility companies are all calling for patience and understanding as crews continue to work around the clock to bring the lights back.

Toronto Hydro says it's moving into the final stretch of clearing debris and reconnecting individual homes

Kathleen Wynne says she too was without power until Christmas morning, and she knows anger is boiling over for those left in the dark for days.

The premier says the province is making available all of the resources it can to help municipalities recover from the storm.

Wynne also says she's seen first-hand some gaps in the storm response, namely people being unaware of where the nearest warming centres are located, and in some cases, whether their homes had been reconnected.
