Based on news coverage, editorials, and personal conversations, I'm getting the sense that the public at large is not as impressed with Nova Scotia Power as I was.

Perhaps the difference is that I got my facts unfiltered, and I had a sense of how reliable or unreliable the information was at any given time, whereas most of the public got their information from Nova Scotia Power's press statements, which appeared to be overly optimistic (particularly in the beginning) and which presented a very confident front even when there were many unknowns. If the goal was to avoid a public backlash, I guess this may not have been the best long term strategy.

None of this changes my high opinion of the people working in the emercency control center, in the call center, and especially the crews working out on the lines.
