#darkTO Boxing Day

How Toronto plans to spend a #darkTO Boxing Day

Boxing Day in Toronto usually offers standard options - braving the wilds of discount shopping, catching a movie, or a cozy day of hermitting at home (aka detoxing from holiday parties pre NYE parties). This year is different - after hundreds of thousand of Torontonians lost power (and heat) for days, holiday plans got messed the eff up. Communication barriers and homes unfit to host a punk show let alone a family gathering turned bustling malls into unofficial warming and phone charging stations. As the 26th dawns, the latest number on outages is 70,000 homes currently without power.

We polled our Twitter followers to found out what you're doing this Boxing Day, and as expected the answers range from enthusiastically commercial to downright depressing. Here's a slice of Toronto's plans for this #darkTO Boxing Day.
