Ontario Premier Doug Ford expressed his gratitude to Rencheck and Bruce Power for “providing power to millions of people in Ontario”.
“I want to thank all of Ontario’s power workers, including the 4,000 hard-working employees at Bruce Power, who are keeping the lights on for Ontario families and businesses,” said Ford. “I also want to thank Bruce Power for doing its part to fight COVID-19 by donating 600,000 piece of PPE and producing the isotopes needed to sterilize medical equipment for our front-line workers. By working together, we can beat this virus and keep all Ontarians safe and healthy.”

This is the Ontario Spirit at its very core.”
