TTC Moment of Silence

Thursday morning, the TTC will stop subway and Scarborough RT traffic for a two-minute moment of silence to remember those killed and injured in the London terrorist attacks one week earlier.

The London attacks have raised questions about the risk faced by the TTC and other Canadian transit systems. Documents have been released that show Prime Minister Paul Martin was twice alerted about suspicious incidents on Toronto subways last year in the months that followed the Madrid bombings. Although there is no evidence that either of these events were connected to an actual threat, officials remain concerned about the system’s vulnerability.

To help address these concerns, the TTC has had uniformed special constables visible at Yonge-Bloor station. As well, Linda Fice, superintendent of security for the TTC, says the commission has plans to install more video surveillance cameras. No specific timeline was announced.
