Toronto Transit Strike

source: CTV.ca
                          About 800,000 commuters in Canada’s largest city were forced to find other ways of getting to work Monday as transit employees walked off the job. Subway stations were locked and buses and streetcars remained parked in garages while confused commuters scrambled to find alternate routes to work.

                           There was little warning of what the TTC called "an illegal job action" by its 800 maintenance workers before the city’s subways, streetcars and buses were idled between 4 a.m. and 5 a.m. EDT. Toronto’s temperature was forecast to hit 30 C on Monday, aggravated by humidity and smog, which was expected to make walking an uncomfortable option.
