Poll shows majority of Toronto residents want hydro lines buried

In the wake of the ice storm, most Toronto residents think Toronto Hydro should bury its power lines, according to a new poll.

A Forum Research poll provided exclusively to the Sun found 59% of residents polled agree that power lines should be buried to prevent future outages.

The poll asked residents on Monday night, “Do you agree or disagree Toronto Hydro should bury power lines to prevent them coming down in future ice storms?”

Around 59% said they agreed, 20% said they disagreed and 21% said they didn’t know.

Around 46% of those polled felt budget cuts to tree-trimming contributed to damage from the ice storm that struck the city on Dec. 21 and 22. Around 33% disagreed and 21% said they didn’t have an opinion.
