Canada Line fully open after Richmond shutdown this morning
Perhaps the Canada Line was feeling left out.
After the Expo and Millennium lines experienced two major shutdowns in one week, the Canada Line had its own outage this morning (July 24).
Metro Vancouver's third SkyTrain line lost power south of Marine Drive Station, shutting down its Richmond and airport branches.

TransLink later announced that power had been restored. (No electrician has been thrown "under the train", at time of writing.)
#SkyTrain - Canada Line power outage has been cleared, we are resuming regular service. Thank you for your patience this morning. ^CK— TransLink BC (@TransLink) July 24, 2014
And just because the Expo and Millennium lines couldn't let the day go by without a glitch, their ticket machines decided to go cash only for a bit.

Fortunately, that problem got solved too.
