Minor incident results in major blackout in Canmore
RCMP are asking for the public's help in identifying those responsible for the damaging $1.8M worth of barley near Pincher Creek, Alta.
Canmore RCMP advised the public to avoid an accident area after a minor incident resulted in power being knocked out to a large portion of the community on Saturday.
Officials say a minor incident near the McDonald's restaurant on Mountain Avenue ended up knocking down a number of power lines.
The downed lines resulted in a power outage for areas of the Wapiti Campground and most of the north side of the community.
The power outage also disabled a number of traffic lights.
