Gas Leak

About 200 residents evacuated due to a gas leak Thursday morning have now returned home.

A private contractor ruptured a gas line during construction near the intersection of Keewatin Street and Paramount Road at around 10 a.m. No one was injured.

The gas leak was shut off by around 2:30 p.m. and residents were told it was safe to return home.

Evacuations included Robins Nest Bay, Linden Park Bay, Santa Fe Drive, Findley Bay, Sedona Crescent, and Gardenton Avenue.

The city says two commercial businesses were also evacuated.
