Thanksgiving weekend will be punctuated by planned power outages in parts of Iqaluit on Saturday and Sunday.
Qulliq Energy Corporation line crews will be conducting repairs.
The power outages will be:
- airport area from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday local time.
- plateau subdivision between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. Saturday
A third planned outage in part of Happy Valley (housing units 550 to 580, 420,535 and 525) was planned between 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. but the company postponed those plans early Sunday morning.
Qulliq says the repairs will help reduce the possibility of unplanned power outages in the city in the future.
