    ''without out''

    Toronto Hydro customers left without out electricity on cold night; about half of those affected now have power.

    please, is something wrong here?
    thanks.

    Yes, the second out is clearly wrong. It looks like a headline. Did you read this in the Toronto Star? A typo.

    It could be they wanted to write "without any power", which is the way you usually hear the phrase read on the radio and TV, but their fingers and minds wandered.

    "Without power" is also entirely correct.

    I find this newspaper a very good one.
    They usually are very concise and objective, despite being clearly against the current PM.
    They also make a lot of typos!

    Yes. Yes. And yes.

    They're considered almost the house organ of the Liberal Party of Canada.
