New Toronto Hydro

 

The June 20th, 1913 edition of the Toronto Daily Star reports that "a copy of [by-law no. 11] shall be posted at the Post-Office, Lakeview Hotel, Wilson's Store (Fourth avenue), and Hick's Hardware Store."  The bylaw itself referred to taking a vote of the ratepayers of the Village of New Toronto on whether the ratepayers were in favor of a supply of electric power from the Hydro-Electric Power Commission of Ontario.
