Toronto financial district keeps ticking despite power outage

TORONTO, ONTARIO - An electrical equipment failure knocked out power recently in a handful of skyscrapers in Canada's financial center, leaving as many as 100,000 without electricity.

The downtown Toronto buildings affected included the tower that houses the offices of the Toronto Stock Exchange as well as First Canadian Place and the RBC Center, a Toronto Hydro spokesperson said.

Carolyn Quick, a spokeswoman for TMX Group Inc., which operates the Toronto Stock Exchange and the junior Venture market, said trading was uninterrupted.

"The Toronto Stock Exchange and TSX Venture Exchange continued to operate during the power outage as they are on separate power systems, as well as there is fully redundant system in place."
