Toronto 2013 Blackout shelter places on Google map

About 200,000 or more Torontonians are suffering blackout right now.(December 23, 2013). I am writing this in candle light with a little bit of battery left on my phone and laptop by using tethering the internet of my phone to the laptop.

If you are on the road in this freezing weather and need to find a closest shelter, check this map I created on google map. The list is as per emailed to me by the toronto city’s newsletter. I may not be able to update when the list changes in future, so please after finding the location on the map. Call them to verify.
