Gary Balabanian is an electrician with integrity. After the ice storm in Toronto in December 2013, hydro supervisors inspected our street for outside wiring issues. We were informed that the hydro wire connected to the outside of our house was not installed according to code, and had to be redone promptly or we would have our power cut off. A lot of people were getting those notices, and when I called several electricians (recommended to me by the way), they were very busy, there was a shortage of parts, and they and were also charging twice to four times the usual price because of the situation. Gary was completely honest. He said his first priority was restoring power to houses that were without power. But after that, he would deal with us, and he did not raise rates because of the demand. He charged us time plus costs, and his rate was bang on what our old electrician (retired) told us to expect. It was half of what the lowest other quote was. He did the job that was needed, and got the ESA certificate.
