A bank of elevators lowers passengers 30 metres underground, and from there four moving sidewalks – two in each direction – will transport them to the terminal building.

TORONTO will soon have its own YouTube Space. No details have been released yet, but the six established Spaces so far have cutting-edge technology for creating video content, along with how-to classes and workshops, leading to worldwide YouTube exposure.
As of March/2015, creators filming in YouTube Spaces have produced over 10,000 videos which have generated over 1-billion views and more than 70-million hours of ‘watch-time’. The six cities with YouTube Space production facilities are Los Angeles, London, Tokyo, New York, Berlin and São Paulo. TORONTO will be #7.
This once was TORONTO’s Coney Island. On summer afternoons thousands crowded the beaches and amusement park rides where King Street intersects Queen Street West. There was little air-conditioning, cottage country was too far away, the city was sweltering, but the fresh, cool waters of Lake Ontario beckoned, providing welcome relief to one and all. You could hop a tram and be there in no time.
The Sunnyside Amusement Park was demolished in 1955 to make way for the Gardiner Expressway. But the fresh-water beaches endure, and the city’s largest swimming pool isn’t far away. <PHOTOS – Toronto Star Archive and City of Toronto Archive>
