More than 11,000 people from Grey, Bruce and Huron counties connected with President and CEO Duncan Hawthorne for Bruce Power’s first ever Telephone Town Hall Tuesday night.

“We’re constantly looking for new ways to communicate with our community and we’re pleased that people were interested in having a conversation with us about our business,” said Duncan Hawthorne, Bruce Power’s President and CEO. Community members heard a brief presentation from Hawthorne answered polling style questions and asked questions during the hour-long session.

For those who missed the call, an audio recording of the session will be posted to Bruce Power’s website (www.brucepower.com) by Monday, Feb. 3.

“We wanted it to be interactive and conversational as we’re very interested in hearing from our communities to ensure we’re doing everything possible to get people the information they need,” he said.

While Hawthorne answered questions on a wide range of topics, he wasn’t able to respond to everything given the one-hour timeframe. Residents are invited to send questions or comments anytime to Bruce Power via info@brucepower.com.
