CORRECTION: Brief power shutdown scheduled for early Sunday morning


(Fort McMurray, AB, May 24, 2013) - A brief scheduled power shutdown is planned for the Suncor Community Leisure Centre in the early morning hours on Sunday, May 26, not Monday, May 27 as was released earlier today.

The shutdown will begin at 2:00 a.m. and it is anticipated that full power will be restored well in time for facility opening at 7:00 a.m. The shutdown is necessary for continued construction at Shell Place and is not expected to affect day-to-day operations at MacDonald Island Park.

“This shutdown has been scheduled overnight to avoid interfering with normal operations at the facility, and it is expected full power will be restored in time for opening. In the very unlikely event the shutdown lasts longer than anticipated we will notify the community as soon as possible,” said Mike Bryson, Director of Facilities Management at MacDonald Island Park.
