    Thanks to NS power crews on the ground working to restore power. The in less hours of work is greatly appreciated.Thanks to the many volunteers that help the residents of Kings County that were inconvenienced by "Arthur". Thanks to Kings County Council and all the none help it provided after the storm. I never once seen or heard any information from our very well paid council. The Warden and CAO were a no show in handing any information out to the people on there emergency plans or shelter information. I believe the "buck should stop at the top". Maybe they had none!! Shame on our elected officials for dropping the concerns of the emergency all on volunteers.Thanks to the firefighters and community groups for there dedication to their neighbors. A review of the counties emergency plan should be done immediately. The citizens you severe deserve a lot better.
