According to BC Hydro it was simply the matter of a bird coming to roost on their wires that turned out the lights for 17 customers at 3 pm but an hour and a half earlier the entire downtown core was shut down due to a substation fault.

Power is expected to be returned by 4 pm in the downtown core however the smaller "Bird encounter" may take until 5:30 pm today.
