Between Monday October 4th and Monday November 2nd, Hydro One will be refurbishing equipment on two transmission towers and overhead lines located in the Timmins Memorial Cemetery to support a safe and reliable supply of power to customers and communities in the region.

Hydro One is working closely with the Timmins Memorial Cemetery to ensure work is completed safely and respectfully.

Work will take place on one tower located in the back southwest of the cemetery, near the Columbarium and one tower located at the northeast end of the cemetery, near the parking lot. Work will also be carried out on the overhead lines that connect these towers. A platform will be installed to protect monuments near work areas and some roads within the cemetery may be closed intermittently throughout the month to ensure safety where there is active work.

Between Sunday October 17th and Friday October 22nd, access to the Cemetery will be limited to the parking lot entrance in the northeast corner while Hydro One conducts important work on the overhead lines. Visitors will be encouraged to enter the cemetery through the parking lot.

Normal construction hours will occur from Monday – Thursday 7:00am – 5:30pm with weekend work anticipated between October 30th – 31st. Residents are encouraged to contact the City of Timmins Memorial Cemetery at 705-360-2615 or [email protected] for further information or any questions.

Hydro One has advised of two planned power interruptions necessary to make back yard pole changes in the vicinity of Airport Rd. and Westmount Blvd. that will affect the traffic lights at the intersection of Airport and Westmount.

The planned outages will occur on October 5 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and October 13 from 8 a.m. and 11 p.m.

The traffic signal will be completely without power during the outages and should be treated as a 4-way stop.

The City of Timmins acknowledges October 4 as a day to honour the lives of missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls, and two spirit people (MMIWG). The day is often commemorated with Sisters in Spirit vigils and events in communities across the country and is one of ten Indigenous days officially recognized by the City of Timmins.

“The City is dedicated to encouraging education and understanding with the goal of fostering reconciliation,” says Mayor George Pirie. “It is important that we show support for Indigenous women and girls. While there is always more work to be done, honouring this day is one way that we can rally together as a community to support, inform, and build relationships.”

The Timmins Native Friendship Centre has planned a week of activities including a candle light vigil this Thursday, October 7 at 10:00 a.m. Candles can be picked up in advance at Timmins Native Friendship Centre. COVID-19 safety measures will be in effect. Please wear a mask and be mindful of social distancing.

“The Government of Canada's statistics show that Indigenous women are five times more likely to die as a result of violence than other women,” says Councillor Kristin Murray. “The City of Timmins' Indigenous Advisory Committee and the City of Timmins' Violence Against Women Advisory Committee recognize that Timmins is home to many Indigenous women, girls and gender diverse people; as such we have a responsibility to collectively engage in working towards addressing this issue as well as demanding change.”

The Native Women’s Association of Canada is a great resource for those wanting more information about the Sister in Spirit movement and how to create meaningful moments of dialogue and reflection that support Indigenous women, girls, LGBTQ+ and two spirit people.
